How Apple Can Improve the Apple Watch Without New Hardware ➝

Tim Schmitz:

I wrote recently that I’ve been somewhat disappointed in the first generation Apple Watch. A lot of that has to do with the limitations of the hardware, but a sizable part is related to the software as well. Apple can only release new hardware so often, but they can update the OS much more frequently. Here are a few areas where I think there’s room for significant improvement without new hardware.

I agree with all of his recommendations. But I do think Apple will need to improve the Watch’s hardware to make this device a must-have. The problem is that it’s just too slow. Aside from glances and complications, everything is much easier (and quicker) to find or do on my iPhone than it is on the Watch.
