Isn't this health angle a tangential benefit for a niche audience? Health trackers are not a game changer.
Apple working really hard to make the case for the Apple Watch as a fashion item, not just a nerdy gizmo.
I'd be more interested in Apple Watch helping me plan my next binge-watching marathon, not my next marathon (which would also be my 1st).
"Mundane but useful"--@harrymccracken
Lol David. Reminds me of this gem from Crazy People: "Volvos. They're boxy, but they're good."
@NoahRobischon: So why did it get the most focus?
re: the Duke reference: "That’s a nod to Eddy Cue, huge Duke b-ball fan"--@tetzeli
Apple Watch is not an it-does-one-thing device, or even an it-does-three-things device (like the original iPhone).
I really don't feel any different than I did six months ago: Watch is trying to do too much at once for a 1st-generation product
Here's a question, Noah. Not only, what is their market penetration--but how many people who bought activity trackers use them 6 months later? I've given up on my Nike+ Fuelband and my Jawbone Up.
@MarkWilson: Once you learn your habits, the health stuff isn't all that interesting.
Apple Pay demo. You don't actually need to touch the watch to the terminal.
I'm addicted enough to Apple Pay to like the idea of having it on my wrist (not $349 excited, but excited).
