Hello everyone! How are you?
Just yesterday, Apple started delivering the AppleWatch to people who were able to get their pre-orders in on time. Personally, I did not order the AppleWatch as I want to see what Apple has in store for the next version. Although I did not get an AppleWatch, I still have some first impressions.
To start off, I would like to say that I have been watching multiple unboxing’s, and hands on videos from people who did receive the AppleWatch. From looking at the different videos and images, I think that Apple had a very cool idea when it came to the packaging of the AppleWatch. All three models of the AppleWatch will have a different box.
Here is a picture of the AppleWatch Sport model:
As you can see, Apple went with a different packaging for each model of the AppleWatch. From watching a few unboxings, I can tell that the experience is going to be great! Apple did very well with this packaging.
The next thing I would like to talk about is the software. Apple is calling the software WatchOS. From the different videos I have seen, it looks like startup is going to take anywhere from 45 seconds to a minute and a half. Although the boot up times seem to take long, you have to think of what is powering the AppleWatch. Apple went with their own S1 chip. This a first generation chip so, the next generation of the AppleWatch will likely be getting an upgrade meaning more speed and faster boot times!
To conclude, I would like to say that I am a huge fan of the AppleWatch and I think Apple is doing the right thing by entering the wearable market. I am very happy to see what Apple has in store for the next model!
Be sure to share your thoughts on the AppleWatch with me over on Twitter. You can find me on Twitter by clicking here. Have a good day everyone!
