Reading this thread there's a lot of bashing imo. This watch may well appeal to many people who want to spend less, don't have the need for the advanced features of the Apple Watch or who just want a different look.
Competition is good. Innovation is good. Options are good. Why are people bashing this? Pebble now is where Apple was compared to Windows long ago. Nothing stays the same and no company stays on top forever. In 10 years who knows where each company will be. In the meantime different options are a good thing. Companies that try something new should be encouraged. Especially when they're not blatantly copying ala Samdung
All I can say is this is great. It may not be a great device but competition breeds advancement. If they are innovating in the battery/power area that can only help drive the whole industry including Apple forward and help us.
What percentage of Apple's profits will come from the watch vs the iPhone and other current type products? Watches will be a tiny fraction so why change all the stores for the minor product line. Make a new area to display them and leave the rest alone or a few tweaks not lounge areas
Again all a seating area will do it take space away from product displays making it more crowded for the fewer units. It will also keep web browsers in the store too which are rarely a purchasing clientele.
Gotta agree here. We don't want the Apple store turning into a new version of Barnes and noble. The idea is for people to come in, browse avg hopefully purchase. Not seeing the benefit to having purple sitting around surfing the web on the store's WiFi. It just takes away room from the products and keeps non customers in longer making crowded stores more crowded
