Who is really worried about accuracy?
Tim Cook is talking about all of the different faces of the Apple watch, each with different information densities. Apple is not just asking you to customize this watch, but to design your experience of it.
you can buy a quartz watch for $20 that'll run like a dream for a year. Really confused both by the idea that I need Apple Watch as a timepiece and that Cook has yet again not paused to explain why I need it
the entire watch industry exists so that I can personalize my watch experience
David, please tell me your heart rate right now -- call me.
@NoahRobischon: My heart is not racing. Also, I could take my pulse with two fingers
And what, David, look at a clock while you count? COME ON!
@NoahRobischon: I'd look at my iPhone.
Digital Touch is the one Apple Watch feature that every designer I've talked to in the last few months is really excited about--but always from an academic perspective rather than a product perspective--in this sense that Apple is making digital communications more analog as a trend.
"You can receive calls on your watch! I have been wanting to do this since I was 5 years old." -- Tim Cook.
They really should play up the "whole new way to communicate" thing. Apple could create a social network that could challenge Snapchat, etc
@NoahRobischon: See, this is the problem right here. Feels like a nerd fantasy and not something fulfilling a need.
We're watching a video of Christy running, crusading for maternal health, and doing other stuff with her Apple Watch, in Africa.
