How long do you guys think it'll be till Appleremoves the crown from the AW? I think I t'd be nice to see it gone by the third edition and replaced with touchpad technology on the left and right sides. The physical button can be moved to the top or bottom.
I'm thinking we will see some pretty big changes in the next Apple Watch (Series 3???). Smart Watches in general are kind of in a weird place in the technology world since they don't drastically benefit your life in any major way and therefore, you can easily live without them. In order to improve sales, it seems like the Apple Watch is straddling the fence between being a smart watch and being a fitness accessory. Just look at the difference between the original Apple Watch reveal (very focused on smart functions) and the Apple Watch Series 2 reveal (very fitness focused).
Since there seems to be much higher demand for fitness accessories than smart watches, the Apple Watch will probably continue to lean towards being a fitness accessory. In doing so, I definitely think it will see some major design changes which might include either removing or redesigning the digital crown. If Apple can redesign the iconic home button, then there is no reason they can't do the same for the Apple Watch crown.
I can't wait to get my new Series 1 tomorrow but at the same time, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what Apple does with the next generation.
