Apple Watch: Not Your Ordinary Watch

Apple Watch: Not Your Ordinary Watch

A few days ago Apple announced the release of the Apple Watch, an announcement that we have been eagerly awaiting. The buzz about this watch has gotten progressively louder over the last year. Apple, a company that is known for creating game changing products with customer ease is at it again.

Like most people, we have our phones constantly glued to ourselves. We feel lost without them. I am so eager for the Apple Watch because it allows me to have my phone on me at all times. Never again will we panic that we left our phone at the restaurant, or have to dig through our exceptionally large purses to find it, or have it sitting uncomfortably in our pocket. The Apple Watch has the ability to be on us comfortably at all times. Apple has once again found a way to make our lives easier.

Now some people may argue that having technology constantly at our fingertips (or wrist in this case) is a bad thing. However, I would beg to differ. I believe that the Apple Watch, and other similar technologies, has the ability to change the way we communicate with one another. With the invention of the Internet, came a change in the way we communicate, then again with the invention of smartphones. This watch is the beginning of a pivot in technology and communication.

The Apple Watch is the future of media convergence. We no longer need a phone, an iPod, and a computer, we have it all on one device. Apple has taken this process one step further with the Apple Watch, as Google has with Google Glass. I am looking forward to checking out these technologies, and to see what happens with media convergence in the future.
