With the release of the new Apple Watch in the immediate future, chances are you may still be trying to wrap your brain around the usefulness of the product. With the plethora of electronic devices we have at our fingertips, do we really need another, especially with the amount of wearable tech that’s already saturating the market?
Naturally, the answer is a resounding, “Yes,” according the folks at Apple, and we can site one major reason for this. Not only is the new watch a time keeper … it’s, more importantly, a time saver. And putting your own personal perspective on how the watch is really used will help make the concept much clearer.
Think about it. How many times a day are you working diligently, focused on completing a task when your phone goes off. 10? 20? 100? Maybe it’s a call. Maybe it’s a text. Maybe it’s an alert. You won’t know, of course, until your reach in your purse or pocket to have a look, and that’s when it all goes downhill from there. Before you know it you’re checking your email, facebook, and getting sucked into the virtual vortex through that portal you call a phone.
That’s where the Apple Watch comes in. What you have yet to realize is that the exact same call, text, alert or whatever is addressed via a completely different type of interaction when you’re using an Apple Watch, which simply involves a quick glance, dictation, or tap to reply. And this interaction makes a BIG difference in controlling cellular time suck.
According to many studies, Apple Watch trial users take their phones out their pockets much less than they did previously, and one user had claimed they nearly stopped using their phone during the day all together. Instead, you may find yourself reading shorter articles on the Apple Watch’s crystal clear display screen which has been carefully created with both form and function in mind.
