Here’s why we didn’t get an Apple Watch
We truly loved and love Apple products, and we’ve longed awaited the Apple Watch, but after careful consideration, reviews, we decided not to purchase a Apple watch for a few, very important reasons.
Quality, Apple! Quality!!!
Probably one of the most painful aspects to see with Apple is the lack of quality in their new product, and it hurts to see Apple release such an unfinished, yet polished product for an insanely high amount of money! Lack of battery life and poor integration with applications plus a considerable amount of lag is not something you’d expect from an Apple product
Battery life… oh so painful.
When Apple released products, you usually expected something mindblowing that just decimated the competitions week points, even if it wasn’t something innovative, it usually was something the competition *cough cough* Androids *cough cough* lacked.
In this case, there internet is filled with posts talking about the poor battery life of the Moto 360 for example or the Galaxy Gears.
Apple did a great marketing scheme by launching a product that lasts the same amount of time as their competitions, but it really hurt us, the consumers, who were truly expecting a product that could knockout the competition. In this sense, Apple has failed to give out the best of the best, even though many aspects of the watch are amazing.
Poor application integration.
By now you probably heard that a tone of apps are updating their software to work with Apple Watch, but what you don’t know is the fact that all the processing of the application is done on the phone then sent over to the watch. Which can lead to immensely painful lags!
If you like lovely preloaders, get used to them because using anything that requires your phone will show you a pretty preloader for about 2 – 5 seconds
Although the charger is completely different from the competition yet so similar, it appears to me that Apple has taken the bad from the chargers and removed the good. If you open the Apple Watch box and see the size and thickness of the cable, you’ll think it’s for charging your Tesla S car, not your watch. A great example of a beauty when it comes to charging is the Moto 360 dock.
Although a beautiful assistant on mobile devices ( we love her on our phones ) it’s a nightmare to use on the watch since most of the processing power comes from the phone. What this means is that Siri will constantly ask you to unlock your device and get the answer there.
Apple Watch 2.
Apple has a beautiful way of releasing second generation products that are mind blowing, and we truly want an Apple Watch, but at the moment, paying at least 599$ for a product that feels unfinished is not going to happen from our side. Although we believe in sustaining investments, we believe Apple has enough capital to do this on their own without customers having to buy unfinished products.
Don’t get us wrong, we still love Apple products, and we’ll probably love them for years to come, but for the time being, we’re still waiting for a second generation iteration of the Apple Watch!
What do you guys think? Have you purchased the Apple Watch yet?
