Now is not the time to wear the iWatch, for Apple hasn’t even announced it yet. But now is the perfect time to judge the iWatch, for news about the apocryphal wearable continues to slip in and out of the mediasphere.
In episode 8 of Wearables Right or Wrong? I dig into the relevance of Apple hiring a sales and marketing executive from TAG Heuer, a luxury Swiss watch brand; the likelihood of the smartwatch and traditional watch markets ever merging; and my own frustrating experiences with the navigation feature in Android Wear.
Have suggestions, or complaints, or just want to tweet random tech journalists? Direct it all to @JonPhillipsSF. Beyond that, please enjoy past episodes of Wearables Right or Wrong? here, and read the stories that fuel this week’s rant:
- Apple poaches TAG Heuer sales director, presumably to help launch mythical iWatch
- This is what luxury watch executives think of your ‘cheap, plastic-designed’ smartwatch
