Why Do I Want An Apple Watch?

This is why I’m worried that the lack of explanation about the Watch’s purpose wasn’t just a keynote oversight, but something that reflects a fundamental question about the product itself that Apple itself has yet to answer: is Watch an iPhone accessory, or is it valuable in its own right?

A great post from Ben Thompson of Stratechery. Read the whole thing, but I agree there was nothing in the Apple Watch announcement that made me think “I want that!”.

Right now, Android Wear’s ability to predict what I want to see on my wrist and serve it to me is beating Apple’s groovy little interface and sexy leather straps.
