From Apple’s financial followers to the culture pages, expect few technology topics to garner as much attention in 2015 as the Apple Watch, which is set to launch “early” in the year.
Why? Because it’s not just a new gadget. Several people, companies, and entire industries are counting on it to be a hit. Without hyperbole, the Apple Watch has the potential to create new billionaires and to change the way people live.
The Apple Watch will sell well, surely. However, this article is definitely not without hyperbole. It will not create new billionaires (well, maybe some Apple employees). It will not “change the way people live”.
I’m not a fan of making predictions, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the Apple Watch – and the entire smartwatch market – is not going to be all that the technology press wants it to be. My Moto 360 is already in a drawer.
