Super Detailed Apple Watch Review from Ariel Adams @

Super Detailed Apple Watch Review
from Ariel Adams @

 "The Apple Watch is going to be a force to be reckoned with." –Ariel Adams

My pal, Ariel Adams just published the most comprehensive article to date on the Apple Watch, and it is a superb read, which sheds much light and insight on the ethos of the Apple Watch. I highly recommend reading Ariels detailed article on the Apple.

"Apple indicated to me that you don't need to take your phone around with you while you exercise, unless you require GPS functions. The Apple Watch can store some media, such as songs, independently on the device (the internal storage of the Apple Watch has yet to be announced), and it can track a lot of exercise and movement data without being connected to an iPhone. Once paired again, the Apple Watch shares data with the host apps on the phone. This answers a lot of questions people had about whether or not the Apple Watch would be able to live apart from its host iPhone device." –Ariel Adams: A Blog To Watch.

"A legitimate debate exists over whether the Apple Watch is merely a fun second screen for one's phone, or a new extension of mobile technology that will soon be as indispensable as having a phone. I don't know the answer, but I do know that if smartwatches are able to negate the need to carry around a physical wallet, then consumers will have a huge incentive to use them." –Ariel Adams: A Blog To Watch.

Apple Watch Memory Capacity Specs

Apple Watch Memory Capacity Specs
4GB & 8GB Versions?

According to, the Apple watch may come in a 4GB and 8GB versions, with 512 megabytes of RAM. This strategy actually makes a lot of sense, especially for customers who want to run with their Apple Watch while listening to music though their Bluetooth wireless headset.

It is so fascinating when you think about it, that the Apple Watch is really a supercomputer on your wrist. It seriously make me wonder what Apple Watches will be like in 5 years!!!

Apple Prepared To Sell More Than 50 Million Watches In 2015

Cult Of Mac, reported that DigiTimes mentioned that Apple plans to sell more than 50 Million Apple Watches in 2015. If we do some simple math, that would generate more than $20 Billion in sales for the first year!!! How many companies on earth have the design, manufacturing, logistics and marketing prowess to sell $20Billion worth of product in the first year of introduction!?!?! Crazy!!!

Nothing Mickey Mouse About The Apple Watch

Nothing Mickey Mouse About The Apple Watch

There are so many subtle nuances to explore with the all-new Apple watch. Pictured below, we see the 38mm Apple Watch in 316L Stainless steel, with a Sapphire Crystal Display, and a Ceramic back, coupled with Apples classic black leather buckle, with matching stainless steel buckle. I don't think I would ever buy or wear a watch with Mickey Mouse on the dial, but I have to admit that I love how simple and clean this looks. Methinks the Apple Watch is a serious work of art!!!

Apple Watch Launches!

Apple Watch Launches!

"We have one more thing! We love to make great products that really enrich people lives.  We love to integrate hardware, software and services seamlessly. We love to make technology more personal, and allow our users to do things they never imagined. We have been working extremely hard, for a long time, on an entirely new product. We believe this product will redefine what people expect from its category. I am so excited and I am so proud to share it with you this morning! The Apple Watch is the next chapter in Apple's story." –Tim Cook [Apple CEO]

So it finally happened, after so much ado, Apple finally launched the Apple Watch, and now the game has completely changed.

Below is the a superb video from Apple named, Apple Watch Reveal.

Below is the official Apple Watch Video introduction by Sir Jonathan Ive, who is Apple's lead designer. The New York Times recently cited Jony Ive as saying that with the introduction of the Apple watch that "Swiss Watchmakers are f**ked."

Below is the official Apple Watch Video for heath and fitness:

The Apple Watch is extremely accurate. How accurate you ask? It keeps "Incredibly accurate" time within +/- 50 Milliseconds...Methinks COSC just got completely obscoleted...

Think Really Different

Below is the entire video of the Apple of Apple Special event. I included the entire keynote video since the iPhone 6 announcement, as well as the introduction of the revolutionary all-new Apple Pay system is also amazingly fascinating, and I highly recommend you sit down with a cup of coffee and watch this Apple Keynote presentation to not only witness the unveiling of the Apple Watch but also to understand how very serious Apple is about building out this new wrist watch platform. 

Also, when you watch this Apple Keynote presentation, pay close attention to the all-new Apple Pay System. If you think about it, Apple in one fail swoop, single-handedly, and in one fail swoop just achieved what nobody has ever been able to achieve, and in doing so, with their highly disruptive technological prowess, just completely reinvented capitalism. If Apple can take such quick steps toward digitizing money, and doing is in such a united way, think about what they can do with watches.

Apple clearly intends to take advantage of their superior and dominant market position with the iPhone to leverage consumers into adopting Apple Watches. 

Dream Of The Ages

The world began dreaming about a wrist-watch multi-tasking as a communication device with the advent of the Dick Tracy Character, who on January 13, 1946, just after the end of World War II, showed up wearing a wrist-watch that featured a 2-way police radio that allowed him to communicate with Police headquarters. 

This simple Dick Tracy comic strip, largely awakened the public imagination as to what a wrist watch might be able to do beside tell the time. In other words, humans naturally and organically imagined that one day, watches could do much more than tell time. They would allow us to communicate over far distances with one another. Dick Tracy's radio watch was so compelling, it caused future generations to assume this science fiction would one day be inevitable and that day is now upon us. 

The world continued imagining a watch that could be used as a communicator, and one great example is from the 1967 James Bond spoof movie named Casino Royal, which stared Peter Sellers and Swiss Beauty, Ursula Andress. 

There is a scene in Casino Royal, that shows James Bond Character, played by Peter Sellers, wearing Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master, which had a built-in 2 way video communicator, as see below.

The photo below shows a Rolex wrist shot of a Pepsi GMT-Master with a video Screen on it, which shows Ursula Andress on its screen.

It's kind of ironic when you think about it that a 1967 spoof movie featured a Rolex with a feature that is light-years beyond anything that exists today. Yet if you think about the communicators that were featured on the original Star Trek, look like child's play compared to an iPhone 6.

It's About Time
