APPLE WATCH: A NEW CATEGORY FOR APPLE
On initial impression, some might say this seems like less of a watch and more an iPhone nano. While the iPhone 6 is an evolutionary change and larger than before, as I discussed in my last article here, the Apple Watch for Apple is a new product category with new ecosystems to go with it. I talk about the ecosystems next.
This is the dawn of a new platform for Apple, and though it’s clearly a “1.0” product shipping in early 2015, they got a lot right their first time out.
