Now there is a “killer app” for the iWatch! When you’re wearing the watch and you misplace your iPhone, you can locate the iPhone from your watch. What more could you ask for? The phone, of course, needs to be within roughly 30 feet of the watch. (Don’t tell anyone wanting to buy the iWatch that they can also just call the iPhone).
Yes, I am one of the iWatch skeptics. I’m often attracted to the “bleeding edge” of technology, but even I have not found a way to justify the purchase. One of my clients has ordered the iWatch. He thinks the biggest benefit is that it will allow him to check his arm continually rather than walking around with a phone in his hand. That does make sense for some people.
In 2010 there were many skeptics about the iPad … including me. So I’ll wait and see before being too much of a skeptic.
