Why the Apple Watch is Failing

Apple is a company that is known for making some of the best and most desirable devices on the market. The iPhone became the phone to have in 2007 and on. The laptop has been a big seller for decades. What happens when they enter the watch market? A flop. That’s what.

Why would a smart watch fail? For starters they start around $400, not a bad price to pay for a watch, let alone one that can sync up with your iPhone. In theory yes, that’s great. However, in real life, who cares? You mean to tell me you want me to keep my hands off the most beautiful phone you’ve ever created, (until next spring) and use the watch… okay I guess.

That’s not even the half of it. You can drop some serious coin on these watches, in the price range of a Kia even, the most expensive watch being $20K. So where the main issue is here, that amount of money would get you a Yacht Master… if you didn’t know, that’s a Rolex, a watch brand with a reputation of lasting a lifetime and then some. What’s the shelf life on your iPhone? 4 years at best? Your Macbook, 8 years at most? Come on, the proof is in the pudding, nobody wants to spend that kind of cash on a watch that will expire before the  next president gets sworn in.


Apple Watches would be far more impressive in the neighborhood of $100-200, it’s laughable at any more. While Apple won’t officially comment on the sales of the watch, Google Trends doesn’t lie… They claim that search terms for Apple Watch are about as common as iPod. Apple however is holding their position that the watch is as popular as they thought or even more…’The response to Apple Watch has surpassed our expectations in every way, and we are thrilled to bring it to more customers around the world.’ Sure…

We aren’t trying to bash Apple by any means. This just shows us that they aren’t from the future, they can have failures just like everyone else! All this said, did you get an Apple Watch? Or did you listen to our advice from the get go…
