It's not hard to see where the Apple Watch is taking us, and it's actually really cool
The Apple Watch’s raison d'être is to reduce the time you spend tapping or staring at your phone screen. It empowers you to stay connected to the most important, useful features of your iPhone, without having to suffer the inconvenience of actually taking it out of your pocket. Thing is, that’s such a minor advantage at this point, it’s tough to convince people to drop $300 for it.
Yet it’s this same concept of convenience that has rapidly spurred tech innovators to create ecosystems of connected devices that will streamline nearly every aspect of our lives. How about a coffee machine that starts brewing a fresh pot the moment it recognizes you’ve woken up? Or a thermostat that automatically adjusts to an optimal temperature when it senses you’re on your way home? Or Sonos speakers that start streaming Enya when your stress levels are escalated?
These products are inevitable, hell, they might even exist already. The less effort we must put into operating our future interconnected internet of things, the better. They should be triggered without having to touch a screen or navigate a menu. What the Apple Watch does now to help run our iPhone, a future iteration will do to help run our daily lives -- becoming a worthwhile and necessary gadget unto itself.
