Pebble’s second generation smart watch is now ready to roll. But seems like the storm of smart watch rivalry is yet to begin. Apple can launch its brand new iWatch at any point of time. According to the sources, the company is at work on developing smart watches that would run on the legendary iOS operating system, which empowers its other devices, like iPhones and iPads. The rumour is all around that Pebble won’t survive against Apple’s technical expertise. However, critics still can’t comment on whether or not Apple’s new iWatch will be able to wipe out its all prevailing competition.
Sharing an impartial point of view is hard as Apple has always been able to live up to consumer’s expectations and offer products value for money. However, Pebble was able to smash all records by raising almost $10 million on the renowned crowdfunding site Kickstarter a few months back. Despite that, people are eagerly waiting to see what Apple has to offer this time. Pebble’s success was a driving factor to others and companies like Sony and Google are also now in the race. However, the question still remains unanswered that whether or not Apple’s new iWatch would be a game changer.
Pebble Steel, which is the Pebble’s recent feature pack smart watch, comes with stainless steel body and steel or leather band. Although Pebble has done a really good job in terms of product features, the question is how well the product will be able to do against Apple’s iWatch.
Apple has always been highly innovative with its product design and feature ideas. The company knows what to offer that customers will find most convenient. From that perspective, the big and clunky look of Pebble’s smart watch doesn’t give so satisfactory visual appearance. No matter how existing people are about Pebble’s smart watch, nobody would like to wear something so big on the wrist with a dodgy backlight. However, the price tag the company has put up surely gives it a competitive advantage.
The customers who won’t be able to afford the top class price tags of Apple’s products, yet would like to enjoy the thrilling experience of a smart watch, will have a higher inclination for Pebble’s smart watch. On the contrary, there are also people who are a big fan of Apple. They would never compromise on product features, user friendliness and the amazing customer service platform Apple has created over the years.
In terms of innovations, Apple has surely taken the world by storm. The revolutionary ideas of Apple’s have always been able to keep its products ahead of market competition. This is probably the reason critics are highly optimistic about Apple’s next movement. Although they still can’t say whether or not Apple’s long time brand image and multidimensional product design ideas will be able to beat Pebble’s cheaper smart watch range, it can be said that it’s a matter of time.
According to the speculation, Apple has decided not to build up the conventional proprietary touch operating system of iPod’s Nano this time. Instead, the company will work on rebuilding the full iOS system. The company hasn’t divulged any further information on that though. If that happens, the launch of iWatch will surely pose biggest threat for Pebble’s smart watch.
Anyone looking forward to have a better insight on the specifications of iWatch can expect the product to come with voice, color, touch screen feature and more memory and power than the Pebble’s smart watch. Although the product cost will be on the higher side, but the price paid for the product will be justifiable. Now the demand depends on whether a customer has the requirement or fascination for such specifications.
Right now everything is based on assumptions and Apple’s well know performance. People have seen Apple’s unbelievable performance over the years. On the other hand, a few customers didn’t find Pebble’s product delivery system so satisfactory. This is why critics say that they won’t be surprised if Apple’s iWatch change the game totally. However, not all watches are same. Each of them has their distinctive features and user friendliness. So, it’s totally up to the customers what they expect to see in a smart watch in return of the bucks they spend. The choice is definitely going to differ. As for Pebble’s smart watch, the product is doing great so far. The only thing people would like to see how it does when Apple’s iWatch is here.
