Interactive Apple Watch demo gives you a glimpse of the near future

Interactive Apple Watch demo gives you a glimpse of the near future
The Apple Watch is coming, possibly as soon as March. A recent survey revealed that 5.4% of current iPhone users are at the least, very likely to buy the timepiece. Since the wearable needs to be paired with an iPhone to work, most early buyers are bound to be iPhone users. Otherwise, buyers of the smartwatch will need to also purchase an Apple iPhone 5 or higher.

The gang at news app Pipes have put together an interactive demo of the Apple Watch. You can load images of the Pipes app made for the timepiece, which is a hell of a way for Pipes to let everyone know what the news app will look like on the wearable. With the demo, you can also load other apps on the virtual Apple Watch such as Instagram, Apple's Health app and Shazam. You can even return to the home screen by tapping on the digital crown.

Wall Street analysts have been working overtime with their abacuses trying to come up with a credible estimate for first year sales. The expectations range from 10 million to 30 million units on the Street, while those in the supply chain say that as many as 40 million Apple Watches will be sold in 2015.

As much as I would enjoy seeing Apple getting "kicked out of the field", I don't believe it would be a good thing for any of these companies to leave the business. Competition is a good thing, and the consumers usually end up winning when more competition exists between these companies.

You can't kick out Apple. They're the ones who sets the standards.

No you are right. Apple sets their standards for their closed ecosystem, and controlled hardware. Oh and BTW smart watches have been out there for years now. So I guess you will be dropping down $349 for the Apple Watch sport with its aluminum body and rubberized band. Or will you be spending $500 for the stainless steel version with a better band?

Ah, my dear Mxy. I am not entirely sure where you have been recently, as other manufacturers have been setting standards as well, some which Apple has only just now started to implement into their devices, and others in which they are still behind. Not to say that they haven't set the standards before, but it would be somewhat ignorant to claim they are the only ones.

You're exactly right. People will say that's a fanboy statement, but it isn't. They did set the standard in 07, whether people like it or not.

My apologies, Mr. Shibe, as I am not quite sure that I follow exactly what you are trying to convey with your comment.

What do you want monopoly? Not gonna happen, they already have with their OS. There are other people also who like Android, BB, WP, etc. So Apple can't kick others as what you think so. Choices are good for consumers.

10 million or more is a joke i think once it comes out people will try it at the store and will think why do i need this and the price is too high for a first gen basic smartwatch people will hold off for the 2nd one we all know tech moves so fast the next one will be out 6 to 8 months later and be better in battery and cpu and they will take out things that are gimmicks. tap drive idea and drawing with finger a shape no need for it. people will just send pics of penis and boobs on it. i think the first 6 months sales will be more like 10 thousand max. after 5 months of very low sales they will drop the price and realize the market is not a high price market look at gear s thats a smartwatch with gsm card and phone built in and there is just no market for it, people dont like new things they have to warm up to them.

I'm not going to lie. I use to bash Apple and its religious followers for a long time. I had been with Android from the get go. That was until my wife purchased an iPhone 5S. At first I had to get used to some missing features but got over it pretty quick. Anyway, I think this interactive demo is a mistake. As Stocklee said, I played with the demo and got bored. I especially loved when I tapped on the Yahoo News app. It says "Sorry but this app has crashed". As I said, I like Apple and like the watch. I really hope that it doesn't come with buggy apps. That's an Android thing.
