It's the gadget nobody needs and everybody wants. Like the iPad, which was misunderstood at the time of its launch, most people don't yet know how a smartwatch will benefit them, and if the hefty investment is worth their time.
Apple has proven it can be. The company's smartwatch acts like a sidekick to the iPhone. It gleans the device's notifications and technologies, and then presents the findings on the prime real estate of wrists.
Some unique features set it apart and help make a case for the 'need' of a smartwatch. The heart sensor draws a lot of appeal because it helps measure how intense a workout is without interrupting it. Apple has also put the technology to work in one of the most intimate ways imaginable.
The pulse of your heart can be sent to another Apple Watch owner. The heart sensor is used to measure a heart beat, while the Watch's vibrating 'taptic' engine recreates the pulse on wrists. Sending this biological rhythm to a loved one says "I'm thinking of you" in terms more powerful than digital text and animations.
