?

Should Apple's website tell you more about Apple Watch or watchOS?

  1. Apple Watch

    7.1%
  2. watchOS

    7.1%
  3. both, like how the iPhone's site is

    85.7%

    Can't be the only one that's "annoyed" (not losing sleep over it, but it bothers me every time I visit)
    The Apple Watch website used to be so descriptive about the Apple Watch

    Told you special things about the watch, went in depth with technology, or special machining processes
    (example is how the Apple Watch is 50ms accurate, or how the Taptic Engine gives you a subtle tap)

    Now all they want to tell you about is watchOS, nothing about the watch itself

    Maybe they could do it how the iPhone they tell you about the tech inside, and the new iOS (an example of the old watch site setup like this can be found here)

    For those interested in what the site looked like originally, this shows you (fully interactive!)

    ?? A little confused. The AW homepage shows you all the features that it had on the old webpage you mentioned: http://www.apple.com/uk/apple-watch-series-2/

    Then if you scroll all the way down, you'll see 'Compare Apple Watch Models', taking you to the specific specs: http://www.apple.com/uk/watch/compare/

    This is identical to what they do with their computer line -- they give you more specific information about each model when you go to 'Compare'.

    Don't think you read my post fully
    Try clicking on the links I provided and comparing them to the new site

    And no, their MacBook Pro site provides some technical things

    I don't really see a major difference, content wise. I think the archived and current versions both offer good descriptions of the product, just in a different manner.

    Ah, that's why - I normally search by the product I'm looking for by typing apple.com/<insertproduct> in the URL bar, rather than browsing from the homepage.

    So in answer to your question, the http://www.apple.com/watch/ which you have gripes with is even better in my opinion - you have all the different models clearly listed at the top, which give you the standard Apple hype/details when you click them; and if you're not sure what does what, you can click 'Compare' which gives you all the detailed information.

    Honestly not too sure it's much of an issue. Seems pretty well laid out to me. Each to their own though!

    Even something like this I'd be fine with,
    I think the Series 2 site focuses too much on watchOS, sure they tell you about a new GPS or brighter screen
    But nothing really technical about the watch's hardware

    The Mobile application doesn't really give out too much information. But the actual website does a fairly nice job of offering comparisons and technical specifications.

    I have to disagree, sure the compare section does offer some tech specs
    But I want insights into the cool things, not a spec sheet

    Again, the old website provides insights into the Watch that weren't presented in a spec sheet style

    What do you consider "Cool" things? Like DLC being mentioned for the black stainless? To me, I find everything I need to justify my Purchases. I have never required additional information.

    I, for one am very upset with the AW website design.

    In fact, I haven't slept well for days and I am getting to the point where I might sell my Apple Watch.
    If this attention to detail continues at Apple I may consider selling my shares of stock.

    Just kidding, website is fine, stop being so demanding.
