Well I think that, because they are. Their square watches were crap and ugly so they wen to plan B, aping the look of traditional watches. And why all the PR shots with the perfect render and a skeuomorphic watch face that looks just like a traditional watch face make the watches look great but then you see them in real life and they don't.Here's the press shot of the Huawei (notice the press shots always feature a skeuomorphic analog watch face)And the watch in real...
My argument is about cost not about usefulness of size. If Apple can sell 64GB for the price of 32GB then they should be able to sell 32GB for the price of 16GB. Of course we all know why they don't; because 32GB would be the sweet spot and Apple wants people spending $100 more. It's probably why they don't offer the silver Sport watch with black band, because Schiller would rather you spend the extra $200 and get the SS watch. And even if you don't do that you're still...
I know this argument has been had before and people don't always agree but I think a round smart watch is 100% about aesthetics. Looking at that new Samsung Watch UI you have to adjust your wrist in uncomfortable positions in order to easily read the text. If I'm looking to see the weather forecast or when my next meeting is I don't want the text curving in the shape of a circle.The way I see it is the first batch Android Wear watches didn't take off and the OEMs (wrongly...
I'm kind of surprised that so many people are surprised Apple didn't go the traditional route. Honestly I think what Apple has done is much braver. Huawei and others are basically saying no one will wear a smart watch if it doesn't mimic a traditional watch. Apple is proving that theory wrong. But I don't think Apple was ever really trying to nab those who wear expensive mechanical watches. Heck Jony Ive even said at that Condé Nast luxury summit that Watch is not...
Hmm...I'm sure some people would be shocked they were put in the criticize category. So either your suggesting everyone here wants at least a 64GB phone or they wouldn't take a 32GB phone instead of 16GB if Apple offered it. Somehow I don't think either of those are true. Btw in 2006 Apple's profit as a percentage of premium was 10.2%. In 2005 it was 9.5%. In 2014 it was 21.6%. Somehow Apple was able to bring the iPhone, iPad, unibody Macs etc. to life on profit margins...
I can't see why many iPhone owners would buy an Android Wear watch because the integration won't be nearly as good. If someone likes the look of this Huawei watch just get a real mechanical watch. No doubt will be better quality.
Who says you can't do both? Vera Wang is a high end fashion designer but also sells a line of clothing and accessories at discount store Kohls. I think Apple can pretty much do whatever it wants. If a store like Curry's sells other Apple products then it only makes sense to sell the Watch there too. But I'm sure like Best Buy they will only be selling certain models. Not the gold and probavly not the space black stainless steel either.
How is it a change of direction? Apple never said the Watch wouldn't come to stores like Best Buy.Someone posted here the most recent issue of Vouge has a huge Watch spread.http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/187809/apple-watch-sales-expand-to-more-third-party-retailers-with-frances-fnacAnd then of course there's the massive takeover of the Selfridge's windows with huge floral...
I'm not convinced that trying to mimic traditional watches that closely is the right idea. If you're not using high-end materials it's just going to look like a cheap knockoff, which is the case with many of these Android Wear watches.A couple weeks ago I read an interesting piece from someone who went to Switzerland to ask Swiss watchmakers about Apple Watch. They didn't talk to CEOs of the big conglomerates but the actual worker bees making these products. They all had a...
How do you make a cheap goldplated watch?
