White_AppleWatch_with_ScreenAbout a month ago, Apple unleashed the news on its smartwatch on September 9th, 2014.  The smartwatch, which will be known as Apple Watch, will hit shelves early 2015.  Since it’s Apple, you know that this watch is going to have plenty of features that Apple hopes a number of people will certainly love.  But according to a flash survey done, only a little over 30% of 1,000 Americans intended on buying the product.

30% may not sound like the number of a successful product, but you have to keep in mind that wearable tech is still pretty new and is still in the middle of gaining ground.  It’ll take time for people to warm up to something like a smartwatch.  Who knows, Apple Watch could become the next iPhone.
