Earlier this week, Apple came forth with the pre-launch of their new product – the Apple Watch. Like everything Apple does, their new product will do way more than just be a smartwatch. In fact, the new device is poised to take control of the fitness tracker market.
With a total of 34 designs, the device offers a higher class of personalization. Apple promises the ability to not only tell time, make phone calls, receive texts, notifications and even buy things. The watch will also have the unique ability to track daily activity such as how many steps taken, sleep patterns, heart rate and calorie intake. The smartwatch will also have the apps to directly monitor everything without a middle man.
At first, the Apple Watch will not completely kill the fitness tracker market, but experts say that over time, the device will be upgraded, the price will be lowered and more people will be inclined to trust the technology after the first generation design is accepted. Unless the current fitness trackers evolve quickly, the new smartwatch wave will consume them.
