According analyst Horace Dediu, the launch of Apple Watch is comparable to the launch of the Mac or the iPhone. Dediu elaborated by suggesting the Apple Watch is a completely different product in that it tries not to do more but to do less. However, the things it does are more meaningful, more thoughtful.
However it does not feel like a watch conceptually. I find myself drawn into a conversation by its vocabulary of vibrations. I find myself talking to it. I find myself listening to it. I find myself glancing at information about faraway places. I find myself paying for things with it. I find myself checking into flights with it. I order transportation, listen to news, check live data streams and get myself nagged to exercise. It tells me where I am. It tells me where to go. It tells me when to leave.
Nothing ever worn on a wrist, or anywhere else for that matter, has done any of these things before. Not only are these things mesmerizing but they are done in a productive way on a wristwatch. In other words they are done in a mindful way.
