March 9th, 6:00 pm Italian time… Now we are, in a few hours Apple Watch will make its appearance on the wrist of the first, irreducible Apple fans. The smart watch of Cupertino is probably one of the most anticipated gadgets ever and for the big day Apple does not want to be found unprepared.
For the occasion, Apple Store could present itself to customers with a new look: let’s imagine the usual tail of tekno fans waiting already from now, maybe yesterday or who knows, even before… What are they going to take home?
What you’re going to do. Apple Watch, we know it, is a smartwatch that will allow those who wear it to have a real extension of their iPhone on their wrist: the watch will receive and display notifications, messages and phone calls but will also serve
Not only that: it will also allow you to control Apple TV and will work as a remote control for everything in your home that can be connected to the Internet and controlled by apps, such as lighting systems, anti-thefts, smart locks etc.
Apple Watch will also support the new Apple Pay payment system (only in the US), detect and record the user’s heartbeat thanks to a special sensor and integrate the functions of a fitness tracker.
And thanks to an ecosystem of apps that can be downloaded and installed directly on the watch, you can do more: from GPS navigation to games, from access to social networks to electronic tickets. Is it worth making false cards to grab one or should it wait? Apple fans won’t feel right about others.

Three (good) reasons to buy it right away.
Design. We could bet on it blindly: Apple Watch is a design jewel that, in perfect Apple style, could succeed where others failed, and will be proposed in a large amount of color, shape and material variants.
Functions. Apple Watch integrates perfectly into the Apple ecosystem and becomes a real extension for iPhone, Apple TV, iTunes and home automation. It will support Siri’s voice capabilities, allow you to make payments without having to pull out your wallet or phone and will make available in a “touch” all the main features that today are only on the smartphone screen: from notifications to calendar, from the
Apps. This could really make a difference. Apple Watch promises superior hardware, which will make it possible to develop “complete” apps compared to those made for competing products.
Three (good) reasons to stand by.
Don’t you have an iPhone? Apple Watch can only be used with the latest iPhones: iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 8. When not connected to the iPhone, Apple Watch may still use some apps to record physical activity (although the GPS location depends on the phone), can show hours, be used for NFC payments and play music downloaded on the device (although
L’uncognita battery. Apple’s claim that Apple’s Apple Watch battery is designed to last a full day, but it is unclear under what conditions of use. According to what has been seen to date the screen of the smartwatch is designed to turn off after a few seconds of inactivity, like that of the cell phone: is this enough to guarantee autonomy for more intensive use?
Will the next version be better? The Apple Insider website assumes that the first version of Apple Watch will contain only part of the functions provided by the original project: the iPhone 6 paired should have provided users with a revolutionary user experience, including The negative outcome of some tests would have convinced Tim Cook and his collaborators to present a first version with reduced functions. And then, Apple (and all the others) taught us that the average life of a mobile phone is two to three years, then technology becomes obsolete, the device no longer has the performance it had when we bought it and we have to replace it. Will that be the case for Apple Watch?
