Mims pointed out that the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s Watch might spark a new set of tech startups kick off the app development for the product. He talked about one such startup inMarket which is working on an app to locate the items inside a grocery store. He said that inMarket has already done some apps for iPhone.

“[…] They (inMarket) have in the lab an app that allows you to navigate through a grocery store and avoid the problem and we have all had in being able to find things on a particular aisle. So actually they are using the geo-location abilities that are unique to the combination of iWatch and the iPhone to give you very precise positioning inside the store,” Mims said about inMarket’s new app for Apple Watch.

No one knows if Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could be able to sell these smartwatches. Mims said that no one is sure about how much Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is going to sell. But he pointed at Morgan Stanley’s projection that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could sell 30 million units of Apple watch in the first year. He said that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could sell only 14 million units of iPads on a comparative basis. He thinks that if Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could meet Morgan Stanley’s target that would move the stock in this year.

Mims feels that a number of tech companies will be ready with their app by the time of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s smartwatch launch. He said that early companies with their apps for iWatch might earn big as seen during the iPhone launches.
