Would you wear Apple’s iWatch?
Apple is announcing a wearable device tomorrow (9/9) that will reportedly fuse the worlds of technology and fashion. To readers of this column, the importance of fashion is obvious. Can Apple get it right?
Apple must be confident in its product, holding the event during NYFW 2014 and inviting the fashion press when they're already overwhelmed. Will this ‘aggressive’ approach Apple is taking be accepted by fashionistas or will its combination of technology and fashion in a wearable device be a fashion disaster?
Personally, I would only wear the iWatch if it was fashionable first, function - to me - is secondary. If the iWearable helped monitor your health, and helped replace your wallet, but didn't look good, would you wear it?
You can watch the event tomorrow at Apple.com/live/.
It has been reported that Apple’s new wearable device will not be available until early 2015.
