‘An element of luxury’ »

“Should I buy an Apple Watch?” “Will it be as big as smartphones?” “Can it do anything my phone can’t do?”

If you — like me — are asked those questions about Apple Watch, I think David Chartier’s answer is pretty good:

Apple Watch feels like an extension of convenience, though certainly with more of an element of luxury. I don’t think everyone will need a smartwatch the same way they need broadband in the 21st century (or rather, it should be a fundamental right) and some kind of computing device, be it a phone or basic PC. But if you have the money and a busy life, Apple Watch is a tremendously stylish, worthwhile way to simplify some of it and spend more time with the things that matter. As with any platform, if Apple Watch grows, our time spent with things that matter will hopefully grow with it.
