Go anywhere, any time, and you’ll see more than half the people, young, middle-aged and elderly…it doesn’t matter, engrossed in their phone. I swear, if a bomb went off, there would be one of two reactions to these phone mongers, half would be fumbling to get their camera app up, the other half would text the event to their BFF.
I went to a business dinner with a bunch of well heeled executives, hoping to do some serious networking. We drove there and chit chatted along the way, but when we got to the restaurant and sat down, everyone whipped out their smart phone and were mesmerized for at least5 minutes, before the waiter came by and broke the spell.
This is exactly what the Apple Watch was designed for, to get people really communicating again, face to face. If you get a text or important email, no longer will you have to lug out that fable phone and get drawn into all those wonders, you can simply flick your wrist and see if that buzz needs your attention, keeping the majority of your focus on what’s right in front of you, real people.

I’ve watched all of the Apple videos they’ve produced over the past few weeks, to condition our expectations, how we might use the watch, its utility, convenience, and its elegance. The Apple Watch is all about keeping your focus on what’s infant of you, minimizing distractions, and getting what you need in the most efficient manner possible.
The Apple Watch works seamlessly with your iPhone, actually an extension of your iPhone, but so much more. You’ll have all the power and connectivity you had before, but over time it will train you that you can be some more productive, aware and alive, as you join the rest of the world again.
The Apple Watch is brilliant! What do you think?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
