Tech: Will Consumers Get Wound Up Over New Apple Watch?

Story by Shannon Mullery, Reporter

Apple’s newest product, Apple Watch, has many loyal Apple fans eagerly awaiting its release.

The watch features a touch screen face on which users can access the Internet, make calls and send texts. Although the watch is available for preorder, it remains to be seen if it will be as popular as other Apple innovations.

“I know it’s a really good product. I have the iPad, the Mac and the iPhone,” Carol Hernandez, a 46-year- old kinesiology major, said. “But I feel the watch is too small. I probably won’t get one. I really just use my phone [to tell time].”

Like Hernandez, many wonder why they should purchase another product that does more of the same.

According to Apple, the watch lets users do familiar things more quickly and conveniently. The device also offers special, exclusive features.

A new app allows watch users to send small pictures they sketch to other watches. Users can also connect with each other by sending their recorded heart rate to other watches just by placing two fingers on the screen.

Alysia Cordinez, a 27-year-old,pre-med major, said that although the product is clever and may offer more versatility, she will probably just upgrade to the iPhone 6.

Watch prices range from $350 to $17,000. It comes in a variety of finishes, including aluminum, stainless steel and 18-karat gold.

With more than 20 models, Apple seems to be seeking mass appeal. But with a release date scheduled for Apr. 24, the jury is still out on whether the Apple Watch will become the new standard in personal communication.
