Looking for The “Killer App” of The Apple Watch

It is little more than one day so that we will see Apple plans for its smart watch. The six months of speculation will come to an end tomorrow at 18:00 in the afternoon, Pacific time (10:00 local time). Tim Cook and company have much, much to tell us about your new device.

Dozens there are questions that we get users. Many of them have to do with the battery life and the price of the Apple Watch Edition of solid gold. But what will really decide the success or failure of the Apple Watch will be its ability to inaugurate a new platform.

The true aim of Apple tomorrow is to establish the foundations to construct a new building. One can withstand the ravages of time.

Looking back

The real reason for the success of Apple products is that they have been able to create one platform on which others have been able to build. Thanks to this strategy, the bite Apple products they have been much more than a simple device technological:

  • The iPod was Apple return to its origins. It was possible that a music industry wound of death could enjoy income of a market in which the user had ignored them completely. We also saw how other companies grew to her around to create compatible accessories.
  • IPhone drank the iPod experience and took her to the absolute limits. Thanks to its App Store, is born a new breed of startups with unthinkable business models until then. Here the manufacturers accessories have also done their part, sometimes in a bizarre way.
  • The iPad may not experience their best moments, but it has established a new platform conducive to innovation. In the education sector and the corporate thanks to the Alliance with IBM we are seeing how it has become a very attractive platform.

It’s funny, but when you again see the presentation of the original iPhone realizes a very interesting detail. When Jobs pronounced his legendary “Three products in one”, the public does not react in the same way with all of them (1:30 min):

“An iPod, a phone, and a communication device”

“An iPod with widescreen and touch controls”, the public applauds enthusiastically. ” A revolutionary phone, ” even more applause and shouts. “A breakthrough internet communications device”, just heard applause. Surely, almost everyone wondered What was that of a communication device for I know not what.

But it was precisely what catapulted the iPhone to the successful platform which is today. Neither Apple nor even Steve Jobs knew exactly which of the three pillars was the key in the iPhone platform. Jobs said at the time:

What is the killer app? The killer app is making calls. How difficult that is to make calls on the phone is amazing. We want that you use your contacts as you ever did.

I think that many people will agree that the phone is not the most important of their iPhones. Sure that will happen the same with the Watch, its ability to display the time isn’t the most important thing. Then, what will be the functionality that dispel the doubts of the public?

A “killer app” for Apple Watch

If you ask any person what is a smartphone for her, probably us look as if we were crazy. Perhaps it would be better to ask what is not a smartphone to finish before. Despite this, a smartphone they are different things for different people.

A portable console ever with us, a way of keeping in contact with loved ones, a work tool, a huge way to entertain us, something to keep us company while we wait for a tail. Each person has his own killer app for your iPhone. With Apple Watch will occur the same.

As it happened with this terminal, Apple does not know what all the qualities your new device will be carrying the singer voice. So far they have shown us three of them:

  • Health and fitness with two dedicated apps.
  • Highly customizable must watch.
  • Form of new communication.

All of them will be available to any user which is made with an Apple Watch from the moment they open the box. But there are many others that will take in coming months and even years. Among those that await us, we have:

  • Third-party apps. Something or the first iPhone had was an App Store. We know that several developers are making the last checks at the headquarters of Apple. Most likely see a demonstration of Nike in the keynote and eventually to games.
  • We already have some accessories for the watch and who knows what will happen when Apple will allow to create belts of third parties. Did someone say Hello Kitty?
  • Domotics and mobile payments, two aspects that we discussed a few days before the presentation of the Apple Watch. On the first, we know from statements of Tim Cook that we enter into our hotel room without check-in and open up our car with the clock of your company. We also know that the Watch is to make mobile payments with Apple Pay.

There are still years so these pillars setting compounds around the new Apple Watch platform. Many just have just started to develop. Once they do so, will be indispensable for millions of people almost without realizing it. It will also be very interesting to observe What new business models and companies they arise around the Apple Watch.

The success or failure of the Apple clock determined by force having its platform. Judging by the effort that the company has shown and its executives, Apple is very serious with your bet. So tomorrow will have to watch to find out what their exact plans.
