The Apple iWatch

Some intriguing thoughts on a possible Apple iWatch from Bruce Tognazzini. Lots of good ideas in here, plus my favorite bit, the paradox of the “huge problem”:

“A problem that feels sufficiently insurmountable will appear the product of natural law, to be accepted rather than challenged.”

It seems to me that breaking this paradox is what Apple excels at. They take an existing set of technologies that seem to be up against a wall and then innovate by bringing them together in one device. And because Tognazzini starts off with the current state of watches and their limitations, it’s much more clear after reading this how Apple might actually pull this off.

Hi there. So...I'm trying an experiment. I'm experimenting with product design and growth hacking strategies on a new project called What to Wear. It's a super simple service that sends you a daily email containing clothing recommendations based on the weather. My focus is to make it really useful, and it's free to sign up. Let me know what you think!
