Apple Watch 2016

Did we see innovative features?

The first iPhone and iPad are shining examples of high level innovation, an ocean boiling new kind of device whereas follow-ups could be described with the words of Apple’s leader Tim Cook

Some people see innovation as change, but we have never really seen it like that. It’s making things better.

An innovative product is only born if it provides space for essential improvements in the future. This is what Apple did with its first wearable device.

Apple Watch Series 2
launched Sep 16, 2016

With Series 2 Apple upgraded the 1st gen Watch in a number of ways, and all of them useful. The extended battery life, the GPS abilities and the water-resistance now make this a top smartwatch, in my opinion the best approach to wearables – but it doesn’t quite do enough to make you need such a watch in your life… yet.

That’s what I also thought a year ago but today it’s my preferred device when it comes to messages from my family in Germany, reminders, control of bank accounts, codes for my many accounts with 2-Step Verification, and last but not least for taking care of my fitness with the Activity app.

Features I sorely miss on my 1st gen Watch:

Performance

Although watchOS 3 was a good move the performance is still poor.

Thanks for dropping by.
