Wearable Tech? iWatch?
Everyone talks about the next great big thing, what’s Apple or Google or even Samsung going to unveil? The thing is it’s already here. We see it everyday on the news. Google launched Glass, Samsung went with Galaxy gear, Pebble with it’s smartwatch. 2014 will be the year of wearable technology. Yet only one is predicted to set the bar for the other companies. Samsung failed on the first try, Pebble played it safe with their Kickstarter project, and Google introduce a work in progress device. Apple over the last couple of years has been criticized for lack of innovation and I think this year Apple will have it’s comeback. New products like AppleTV, a TV set, and iwatch will be the spotlight of this year. My pebble Smartwatch has changed the way I use my iPhone every day. I receive notification everywhere even when my phone is not around, on the shower, when I go swimming at the pool, and almost everywhere. People say a smartwatch it’s a silly accessory and I was one of them, until I realized how easy my life became with it. Yes the pebble has limited functionality even with the new app store the company launched, but I know Apple will change the way we use a Smartwatch once the iwatch hits the market. We still have a couple months until we actually see this product but I know this year will be filled with rumors even on the worldwide developers conference on June where we are not expected to see even a preview. There is no doubt that we will get excited about rumors that we wish could be true, like solar powered iwatch, but no one actually knows what Apple has planned. The way I see it, this is only the beginning!
