One fact stood out at Monday’s Apple press event and that is that the Cupertino-based tech behemoth is aiming for two distinct groups with its first wearable device: geeks and status seekers. The former will buy the entry-level Apple Sport or Apple Watch for all the health features and cool apps while the latter will be forking over thousands of bucks for the 18k gold Edition version because it’s the latest pricey status symbol.
Recently,Apple CEO Tim Cook who is in Amsterdam when speaking at Startup Fest about the company’s interests in various projects discussed the Apple Watch and hinted a bit about the sort of health focus Apple believes it should have in our lives. The Apple Watch is already capable of tracking some things – steps, for example, or bike rides and jogs – but that’s just scratching the surface. His comments suggest Apple believes the Apple Watch is capable of so much more.
