Un anno con Apple Watch

Geek   23.04.16  

Cosa funziona, cosa no e cosa aspettarsi in futuro dal dispositivo più personale di sempre mai progettato a Cupertino.
Apple Watch nella recensione di Ars Technica dopo un anno di utilizzo. O quasi.

About a year ago, Apple announced and released its first Apple Watch. The long-rumored product was Apple's first all-new product category since the iPad and its first under CEO Tim Cook. To say that expectations were high would be an understatement.

To date, we don't really know much about how the Apple Watch has sold—Apple folds it into the "Other product" category along with the iPod, the Apple TV, Beats headphones, Airport routers, iPhone and iPad cases and covers, and whatever other little odds and ends the company sells. While revenue for that category has increased year-over-year by a significant margin since the watch was introduced, the only thing we can really infer from that fact is "someone somewhere must be buying Apple Watches."

However well it's selling, Apple's strategy with new products is to release them and then iterate continuously, working until all of the biggest complaints about the first-generation model have been addressed (or until people have forgotten about them or moved on to something else). After a full year of wearing the Apple Watch every single day, it's time to revisit the hardware, software, and some things I looked at in our original review to see where the platform is and where I think it ought to go in the next year or two.

A dispetto delle attese lo swartwatch di Cupertino si comporta sott'acqua molto meglio di quanto annunciato dalla stessa Apple.

Un mese con l'Apple Watch

Walt Mossberg ha indossato continuativamente un Apple Watch per un mese. Ha deciso che ne ordinerà uno.

Some commentators have complained that the Apple Watch lacks a "killer app" -- the one thing that would make it irresistible to consumers. But I disagree. I think any new device like this becomes attractive when it looks good, works well, and does multiple useful things of different value to different users.

For me, the three big winners among the watch's functions were fitness, texting and paying for things and checking in at airports. All can be done on the phone, or indeed without digital devices at all. But I found that the Apple Watch made each easier and, in the case of fitness, more effective.

If it were more widespread, I'd add a fourth: Checking in at hotels. While testing the watch, I was able to try it during a faux check-in at a W hotel in Washington, D.C. As I walked in, my room number appeared on the watch, and I was able to breeze by the front desk, go right to the room and use the watch as a key.
