The Apple Rollout 2014
Apple has rolled out their impressive new lineup of devices for the fall season. The next must have accessory for 2014 is the new Apple Watch, a wearable device that promises to be more user friendly than the slow moving Google Glasses.
The Apple Watch will come in two sizes with a number of different bands available. For the sporty types, there is a sweat-proof strap and for the business look, an 18-karat gold version.
The watch will run on a new operating system designed specifically for the wrist device. Apple’s intent is to create a smart watch that works with their popular iPhone. The applications will enhance the ’smart’ experience, not necessarily duplicate what the iPhone already provides.
Only a few applications have been officially announced, but Mattress Vancouver hopes their is a sleep tracker similar to the program offered by Jawbone UP. This will help users monitor their nightly schedules so they can maximize their time on their luxury mattress.
Also on the Apple rollout was the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The new phones have finally introduced a screen size that is competitive with the popular Galaxy. They have also followed the market trend and shaved off a little in the width department.
But like all Apple products, they don’t come cheap. Expect to pay as much as $1000 for the 128GB edition and as ‘little’ as $749 for the basic 6 with 16GB. The pricing for the watches has not been released for Canadian markets, but Americans will be paying close to $350US for the basic watch and strap.
