In its family tree of products, Apple feels that the nascent iWatch will fill a large void in its ecosystem. We’re not sure how realistic that is, but Cupertino remains insistent, and since they were right about the iPhone & iPad, we’re willing to give it a chance.
Apple reportedly has around 100 product designers working on this wrist-wrapping technology. I can’t imagine ever using something on my wrist as consistently, comfortably, or with as much dexterity as I currently do an iPhone, but maybe the greatest trick Steve Jobs ever pulled will be posthumously shifting personal computing from hand-held to wrist-held.
For this to work, though, Apple had better equip the iWatch with BlueTooth or similar wireless capabilities, because no one wants a wire dangling from their ears down to their wrists.
The real test is giving us a reason for needing the iWatch. What can the iWatch do that the iPhone can’t?
Your move, Apple.
