The Apple Watch has been heralded as the next big thing in wearable technology and smartwatches. It will be going up for pre-order on the 10th of April and will be released on the 24th of April, but the big question is will you buy it? While we expect some will no doubt be in line to get their hands on the device, a recent survey conducted by Reuters found that 69% of Americans will not be getting the Apple Watch.
The poll was conducted from the 9th of March to the 13th of March where a staggering 47.5% said that they had absolutely no interest in the device, while an additional 22.1% said that they weren’t very interested in it. The results also found that only 9.4% of those surveyed were very interested, 15.2% at somewhat interested, with 5.8% still undecided.
Of course this does not mean that the Apple Watch is doomed for failure. In fact many might recall the initial skepticism that Apple faced when they decided to enter into the phone business with the iPhone, and with the iPad where many made fun of its name only for Apple to get the last laugh as the tablet has proven to be a huge success for the company.
That being said there are some critics of the Apple Watch who claims that there is nothing special about the device that truly makes it stand out from the competition. After all it offers up pretty much the same features as other smartwatches and fitness bands, the main difference being its premium price tag. it remains to be seen if the Apple Watch will succeed or if it will end up being a colossal failure, but what say you? Would you get an Apple Watch?
