You cant compare iWatch to iPhone as far as potential sales. Think about it, who wants to look like #$%$ Tracey? Really? There might be a nerd niche, but the average person is not going to run out and buy one.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Yeah, cuz the first people to that carried around a 2 lb. mobile phone didn't look nerdy. I wish i had a dollar for every person, (back in the day) i've heard say..."I've gone this long without carrying a phone with me, I'll NEVER get a cell phone."
Seem like fashion is such an important thing for some. Maybe Apple will make it so third party can come up with different bands? Much like phone cases? People are assuming everyone who wears a tie will look exactly the same.
If the market is so small why Samsung, Googole, Sony all jumping in?
Case and point, I bought a hose phone that connects to my iPhone via Bluetooth and when my iPhone is being charged, my house phone actually rings when my iPhone is called. That's nice.
I sit in my car, someone called and I don't have to pick up my iPhone cause my car is Bluetooth enabled. That's nice.
How many times you missed a call in a noisy place? Sale people would welcome such device.
Woman that keep their cell phone in the pocketbook can use some innovation on this front.
Doctors on call? First responders?
Parents who want to be able to be in touch with their kids?
Don't just hear the word WATCH and only see the second hand.
There's a big difference between Samsung Google and Sony. Apple is DEPENDENT on iWatch. Samsung, Google, and Sony have hundreds of products. The others can jump in and it won't matter if no one wants a smartphone watch. All eyes will be on Apple as their pride and joy barely makes a fart in the wind.
