Why The Apple Watch Is Now A Game Changer For Apple

I truly believe that the Apple Watch Series 4 is a game changer for Apple as it is a fully baked smartwatch can brings a number of unique features that basically make every other smartwatch irrelevant. How so you ask? Well, it can quite literally save your life. Here’s how:

  • The Apple Watch now detects fast and slow heart rates. Both of with are highly dangerous and if you got an alert like this, you should seek medical attention.
  • The ECG feature that is yet to roll out on Series 4 Apple Watches can detect conditions like Afib which is also highly dangerous and requires medical attention.
  • One feature that is unique to the Series 4 Apple Watch is fall detection. It’s turned on by default for those who are 65 or over. But you might consider turning it on regardless as it will alert emergency services along with the contacts that you define if you’ve fallen and cannot respond because you’re unconscious or the like.

And it does all of this in a package that looks good and can also help you get into shape because Apple has beefed up the fitness features as well. Being fit can also save your life by the way. Now if you think this is all over the top, consider this. The previous generations of the Apple Watch were already saving lives. Thus all these new features take that proven functionality to the next level.

In short it makes the Apple Watch a product that several orders of magnitude above the competition who don’t offer this feature set, and likely won’t for years. Assuming that they can catch up at all. That’s also going to give Apple the ability to simply build on this lead that they’ve gained by adding new features to further assist you in staying healthy. Which means that the possibility exists that the competition may not be able to catch them. All of this is game changing for Apple because they now have something in a niche that nobody can match. Which means that they have a brand new revenue source the will add to the billions that they have to the bank. And at the same time, they are providing a device that can benefit millions. That’s a win-win in my book.
