I honestly can’t think of a single reason to justify purchasing a smartwatch, at least for myself, and there are many people like me, most people if we’re being truly honest. Tim Cook isn’t deterred by this and believes that, given enough time, the Apple Watch will become one of the most essential parts of your life and will replace pretty much all of your other gadgets.
Why would anyone want to buy an smartwatch? This is a question that many of us have likely asked ourselves over the past several months as Android Wear devices begin to seep into the market and Apple prepares its first wearable. It’s also a question that Tim Cook and the team at Apple had to ask themselves, but they appear to have come up with an answer. “This will be just like the iPhone: People wanted it and bought for a particular reason, perhaps for browsing, but then found out that they loved it for all sorts of other reasons,” Cook told The Telegraph in a recent interview. So what are those other reasons? Why would I need an Apple Watch in addition to my iPhone?
