The advent of wearable gadgets, particularly watches, have revolutionized how we want our timepieces to be. The demand for smarter and more interactive watches that serve as a fashion statement is perhaps best demonstrated by the Apple Watch. The super stylish Apple Watch has a battery life of one day and comes in three variations, Sport, Watch and Edition, priced from $340 to $10,000 (Beavis, 2015).
What makes it worth the cost? Well for starters, it gives you your cellphone on your wrist. From making and receiving calls, having your whole contact list handy, viewing and sending texts, having personalized emojis and programmable apps on your Apple Watch, you can make use of this luxury jewelry to track your phone, sync with your other apple devices and obviously, keep time. The timekeeping element of the Apple Watch includes alarms, stopwatch, sunset and sunrise time, weather, world clock etc (Gorman, 2015). Personalization can be done by changing the colors of the watch screen and adjusting the number of widgets.
The simpler the number of apps, the easier it will be operate otherwise it may become too complicated (Boxall, 2015). With everything you need (and more) housed within this engineering wonder called the Apple Watch, there are only a few reasons that could encourage you not to, including lack of compatibility with third party apps and social alienation that might result when you do two socially rude things at once, look at your watch AND your phone at the same time when you look at your Apple Watch.
