Like so many people, I have eagerly awaited the release of Apple Watch. As soon as my local Apple Store have them on display, I went to check them out. It is a gorgeous piece of electronic marvel. Not only does it look beautiful, it also feels expensive on the wrist. The Apple Watch has certainly redefined electronic watch and even transcended all other smart watches, and in the process completely obsolete the traditional watch (aka dumb watch). But as wonderful as the Apple Watch is, the dumb watch is likely to continue to thrive. Heres why: 1. There are infinitely more designs, colors, shapes, styles, and price range for dumb watch. 2. Apple Watch is expensive. Apple markets it as a luxury item and it is, ranging from $349 for Sports to $12,000 Edition. 3. For many lines of work and activities think farming, construction, service and repair, diving, skiing, etc. dumb watch is actually easier to use with gloves or dirt covered fingers. 4. You can see the time without having to touch the watch. 5. You don't have to charge it everyday. 6. You don't have to remember to bring a charger when you travel and yes, yet another charger to carry on your luggage already filled with other gadgets. 7. You don't have to find yet another outlet for the watch at home or in hotel. 8. It will not become obsolete in a few months. 9. There is some nostalgic and sentimental value to a traditional watch. 10. When in a jam, you can wrap some of the more muscular dumb watches around your fingers and use them as brass knuckles.
