Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, or Apple Watch Edition: Which collection should you get?

Apple has divided the Apple Watch into three collections, each featuring a distinct material — stainless steel, aluminum, and gold. Those three collections come at three very different price points. That might make it seem easy to choose between the less expensive Apple Watch Sport, the premium...

No on-device screenshot needed for Apple Watch app submissions

No on-device screenshot needed for Apple Watch app submissions

Looks like Apple corrected some confusing language on the submission-side of Apple Watch apps. When iOS 8.2 first went live, Apple's developer upload portal, iTunes Connect, referenced a requirement for an on-device screenshot rather than simulator-only screenshots. That would mean you had to have...

Over 60 million Americans interested in buying Apple Watch

According to a recent survey, a whopping 25% of Americans are interesting in buying an Apple Watch. That's for a product that hasn't even been released yet. What's more, when constrained to the adult population, that works out to roughly 60 million people*. Even better news for Apple: 13% said...
Apple Watch as a filter for what's really important

Apple Watch as a filter for what's really important

I had the pleasure of sitting next to Clayton Morris during the Apple event last Monday and chatting with him about it for a couple of hours afterwards. Clayton has a real ability to explain technology to the mainstream. It's what makes him a powerful voice for consumer electronics on TV. So,...
Activity tracking on the Apple Watch

An "Activity" app appears on your iPhone when you pair an Apple Watch

When you pair an Apple Watch with an iPhone running iOS 8.2, it looks like a new "Activity" app miraculously appears. We've seen a lot about the Apple Watch so far, there are still a few surprises in store. Take the Apple Watch app that appeared after updating to iOS 8.2 — it's not the only new...
Apple Watch and digital unleashed

Apple Watch and digital unleashed

I was having lunch today when my iPhone buzzed in my pocket. I wasn't alone, and the gentleman I was having lunch with was telling me a story involving Heineken and Goldfish crackers, so I didn't want to be rude and reach into my pocket and find out why. Because of my job and my settings,...

The newspaper, the marketer, and the Watch

The newspaper, the marketer, and the Watch

There was a scathingly daft story about the Apple Watch in the Guardian yesterday where someone who'd never seen it or used it opined about it being a major mistep and, to double-down on the daftness, trotted out the vapidly cliched "this would never have happened with Steve" line. All of...
Who the gold Apple Watch is perfect for

Who the gold Apple Watch is perfect for

"It's not that you don't like the Apple Watch Edition, it's that you don't like the people who like the Apple Watch Edition. Think about that next time you make fun of the Internet." The above paraphrases just one of the innumerable quotes I love from the West Wing. It beautifully encapsulates...
Apple Watch health and fitness sensors

Jawbone and Nike fitness trackers swept out of Apple Stores by Apple Watch

Apple Stores across the nation and online have been cleansed of fitness trackers that aren't called Apple Watch. Both Jawbone's UP24 and the Nike+ FuelBand have vanished from Apple Store shelves. Admittedly, Apple's never been keen on stocking products that compete with their own, and the...

How secure is the Apple Watch?

How secure is the Apple Watch?

That was a question posed by MarketWatch today. It's also an important question. Unfortunately, MarketWatch didn't treat the question that way. And that's a profound disservice to its readers. The Apple Watch is, by Apple's own admission the most personal, most intimate device the company has...

Frakes, Morris, Ochs, Snell, Viticci on Apple Watch and new MacBook

What do some of the smartest minds in tech think of Apple's latest announcements? As soon as Apple's Spring Forward event was over, and the demo area calmed down, I had the chance to talk to a few members of the media in attendance. They graciously shared their thoughts on the Apple Watch,...
Keep calm and Apple Watch on

Keep calm and Apple Watch on

The Apple Watch isn't an iPhone any more than an iPhone is a Mac — it's something new. It took me a few minutes to get used to using the Apple Watch. At first I came at it as though it were an iPhone that Apple had shrunk down so it could fit on my wrist. Since, intellectually, I knew what...
