The much anticipated Apple Watch is finally here, and aspirations for it are high. The Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Sport, and the Apple Watch Edition have all been released and customers have taken their pick. The Apple Watch is expected to be a big seller because the watch is much more than a mere time teller. This said, the Apple Watch is having a relatively slow start up because of the high prices and limited availability. However, the Apple Watch has shed the spotlight on the smartwatch category as a whole.
The biggest question in regards to the Apple Watch is, "Why do I need one?". The Apple Watch, like all smartwatches, to some people may seem unnecessary. However, the question may be answered by the mere fact of having an iPhone. The main requirement for the watch is an iPhone, so it is specifically marked towards these people.
Students at Bullis have tuned in to the excitement of the Apple Watch. Some students even have their own Apple Watches, and have come to the bulldog to talk about their experience.
Bullis Senior, Mike Fan, is one of the people who was able to purchase the Apple Watch when it was first released. Fan says that he made the decision to purchase the watch because, “the sport edition is not that expensive, and it looked really cool on the advertisement.” When Fan was asked if he uses the watch regularly and what the best feature is, he responded, “I wear it everyday. The battery lasts very long. The best feature is being able to track your health data (walking distance, heart rate, etc.). Also, I can read notifications from my phone (email, text, news) really easily.”
Fan says that he would recommend the watch to Bullis students because it is a “good watch.” He also says, “I also recommend people to wait for the Apple Watch 2. I believe it will further improve in the next version.”
The Apple Watch in all of its anticipation has made its way to Bullis, and more students should utilize the groundbreaking technology.
