Apple Watch - Getting The User Experience Right
Apple Watch And Wearables - Getting The User Experience Right
David Crossland, UX Manager at Natural Interaction.
Wearable technology - why?
These days, pretty much everyone has a computer in their pocket. Some modern smartphones rival game consoles for pure power and performance. The iPhone XS has a 6 core CPU, a 3 core GPU and 4GB of ram and is capable of running a Elder Scrolls game. It's been 11 years since the original iPhone, and they’ve come a hell of a long way - pretty awesome.
Smart watches are a more recent consumer product to come to the market. There is a buzz around wearable tech and some think it will replace smartphones in the future.
The truth right now is a little more complicated. Smart watches are an accessory which is an excellent pairing with your smartphone. You can do almost everything a smartwatch can do on your smartphone already... but convenience is key.
