iWatch From Apple: Apple iWatch – Is There Even a Market For The Device?

iWatch From Apple: There has been a lot of talk lately about the smart watch market, and whether or not Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is going to get involved. While many believe that the Cupertino based company is currently developing an “iWatch” there is nothing concrete suggesting that a device will make its way to market in the near future.

Apple Inc (AAPL)Along with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), we have covered a story about Microsoft Corporation working on a smart watch of its own.

There are two questions that need to be answered: which company is going to make its way to market first? We discuss this here.

Secondly, and more importantly, is there a market here that will allow Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to make money?

Answering this question is much more difficult, being that many companies have failed at creating similar devices in the past.

A recent report by ChangeWave, however, may change this way of thinking.

The research company had this to say about its survey of 1,713 respondents:

“A new ChangeWave consumer survey shows exceptionally strong interest in an Apple “iWatch” device – driven in large part by Apple’s track record of delivering ultra-convenient, easy to use, innovative products with a perceived ‘cool factor.’

For more information on the findings, we don’t have to look any further than this piece by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) blog AppleInsider.

This piece touches on the same research by ChangeWave, nothing that “19 percent of consumers declaring themselves “likely” to buy such a device.”

While this may sound like a small percentage, if it holds true over a large group of consumers, it will make the device from Apple quite popular.

Here is what Andy Golub of 451 Research’s ChangeWave service had to say:

“Apple’s track record of delivering ultra-convenient, easy to use products with a perceived ‘cool factor’ is driving pre-release demand for the rumored Apple ‘iWatch. While an ‘iWatch’ doesn’t yet exist – and if it ever does it will have to live up to super high expectations – it has the potential to be another huge success for the Cupertino, Calif., manufacturer.”

Golub hit the nail on the head by saying that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will have to release a winning product to satisfy the market. Maybe this is why the company is taking so long to bring a device to the public?
