reviews coming in
Here are two I found
just found another
"The New York Times announced last week that it had created one-sentence stories for the Apple Watch, so let me end this review with a note that could fit on the watchs screen: The first Apple Watch may not be for you but someday soon, it will change your world."
That's the second time I've read about a steep learning curve for the Watch OS.
Nice find! I think the band looks better than I thought it would. I didn't know about the an ability to reply to emails. Do you think that will be updated was an OS update?
Bloomberg's review is up too.
What's up with their website though?
Ahhh i totally knew they were going to be coming out today
Starting to sound more and more like a pre-teen/teen device.
OMG, someone just updated facebook, Ohh a twitter update, I have a notification from yahoo, omg, my friend has just bold me she's going to the beach later. I need to tell people I won't be getting my hair done later..
and so it goes on and on and on.........
Like anyone actually cares
I note the way they come out with wide sounding statement, like "the Apple watch can open your hotel room door"
As if all over the world, any hotel you go to you can use it with from today!
Yeah I like the Verge's review. So far they seem to be the only one to point out delays in the watch responding. Hopefully the x.0.1 update will be out soon to fix that issue.
Steve Jobs brilliance was wooing and convincing the New York Times and Wall Street Journal to be shills for Apple.
This article mirrors years of being treated with early access to New Apple Products just before their release. This a result of the many perks Apple gives Uncle Walt Mossberg, David Pogue and Kara Swisher, a practice that has served both parties quite well.
Assuring Apple a gushing praise filled article with just enough negatives to not be obviously Pro Apple to the average reader. The cozy relationship has made Apple billions.
NY Times review didn't do much for me. But it's unfortunate that Siri is still hit or miss. Being that it's an integral part of the Watch Apple really need to improve it.
I used to work at the new york times and i can tell you first hand they are not and were not schills for Apple and did not get early access to products outside of review units. I know the guy who built the Apple watch app. He and I were known for being HUGE Apple fans at the NYT. I know other people who were very senior at the nyt who hated steve jobs. ;-)~
That verge review is nice on the eyes
I really want to read a review from someone who actually has a smart watch. They all mention how strange it is getting notifications on your wrist....welcome to 2 years ago for many of us.
The Verge's review is great. Basically confirmed all my fears. I'm still buying one, but it doesn't seem like a must have. I loved the part with the reviewer in a bar. Like, do we really need more notifications?
I have zero interest in the Verge review. If the review is even a tiny bit positive it will be littered with "iVerge" snark in the comments section.
And as far as Bloomberg's review....how do you define need? I don't need an iPad either. Doesn't make it a bad product.
"the Apple Watch does function as a watch, one which has literally millions of different dial combinations. The timekeeping that Apple is using is so precise, its within 50 milliseconds of the global time standard known as Coordinated Universal Time. "
Made me laugh, how can you take any review seriously which has this at the top?
Not the overwhelmingly amazingly positive reviews I think Apple needed to get to really push this...
Nilay Patel? No thanks. It's because of him that the Verge quality has gone the way of Gizmodo and Buzzfeed.
Nilays verge review pretty much cemented my buying option. Sticking to sports edition for now. Its a shame to hear about all the wait times loading stuff. I dont think a software update can fix all that though. No matter what; it is still relying on the phone to load data. That being said.... i am still excited for the product. Cant wait until 4/24
I agree. Siri was not built on a system like Google uses for Google Now which is constantly improving week by week. Sadly I don't expect Apple will ever be half as good since Siri is less intelligent and more dependent on Apple programming. It's a bit of a ruse, backed by the world's most influential hype and marketing machine.
The Verge review is, I think, the most damning. Not because it's good or bad, but because the Verge is - frankly - known to a lot of people as iVerge. They're in Apple's pocket. 100%. Their review is the one that should be glowing. The fact that it's more "mediocre" with a lot of "ifs, thans, and buts" shows a complete lack of confidence in the product.
That's a big "Ouch".
No more being 80 milliseconds late for the weekly meeting...LOL
Thanks for Posting.
Great point about it being non immersive. I see that as a big plus for me on top of not needing to fish my phone out constantly checking for missed calls etc from family/friends. Excited!
Here's one from Ben Bajarin. He's had a week with the device.
