For all you Mac fans, there’s a new product coming out shortly called the Apple Watch. The first pre-orders, which opened April 10, are scheduled to arrive next week. The newest timepiece was so popular that orders are already backed up until July. What makes this watch so trendy? Well, aside from its coveted brand name, the Apple Watch has a number of attributes intended to bring online communication and other technology right to your fingertips… or at least to your wrists. Features include social media updates, Siri, phone calls, and plenty more. Using ‘taptic’ (i.e., vibrating) feedback, the watch can alert its wearer of incoming emails and calls. From your wrist you will be able to access your credit card, passport, and music cache as well as track your exercise and, in limited quantities, store photos. If that’s not enough, it also achieves the unbelievable: it tells time, too!
Although the battery life may not last the anticipated full day, CEO Tim Cook has promised 18 hours of use for an average person’s day. There’s also a pleasant range of styles, from aluminum sports bands to sleek gold pieces. In fact, there are over 30 different designs to choose from. It may be hard to decide, but that also ensures you find just what you’re looking for.
