I langt de fleste anmelderes konklusioner er dommen klar; Apple Watch er det bedste smartwatch på markedet! Det er dog også blandt de dyreste, og ligesom de mange andre smartwatch-produkter på markedet, langt fra fulendt.

De klare gengangere i anmeldelserne er, at produktet klart er det flotteste og mest behagelige smartwatch til ens håndled, og det holder strøm én hel dag som lovet af Apple – men så heller ikke længere end det. Apple Pay er produktets største force, mens halvbagte funktioner, langsom software og irriterende notifikationer er blandt de nævnte problemstillinger hos uret.

For at give dig et bedre overblik over de mange anmeldelser, der allerede er landet, har vi herunder samlet et udpluk med citater og links til de enkelte anmeldelser.

Bloomberg: ”The watch is not life-changing”

– ”So Apple has succeeded in its first big task with its watch. It made something that lives up to the company’s reputation as an innovator and raised the bar for a whole new class of devices. Its second task—making me feel that I need this thing on my wrist every day—well, I’m not quite sure it’s there yet. It’s still another screen, another distraction, another way to disconnect, as much as it is the opposite. The Apple Watch is cool, it’s beautiful, it’s powerful, and it’s easy to use. But it’s not essential. Not yet.!”

The New York Times: ”Bliss, but Only After a Steep Learning Curve

– “The Apple Watch is far from perfect, and, starting at $350 and going all the way up to $17,000, it isn’t cheap. Though it looks quite smart, with a selection of stylish leather and metallic bands that make for a sharp departure from most wearable devices, the Apple Watch works like a first-generation device, with all the limitations and flaws you’d expect of brand-new technology.”

The Verge: “It is one of the most ambitious products.”

– ”There’s no question that the Apple Watch is the most capable smartwatch available today. It is one of the most ambitious products I’ve ever seen; it wants to do and change so much about how we interact with technology. But that ambition robs it of focus: it can do tiny bits of everything, instead of a few things extraordinarily well. For all of its technological marvel, the Apple Watch is still a smartwatch, and it’s not clear that anyone’s yet figured out what smartwatches are actually for.”

CNET: “The most ambitious, well-constructed smartwatch”

– “We’re still two weeks away from Day One of the Apple Watch. It’s already got tremendous potential, lots of software, and beautiful design. I like wearing the Apple Watch, and it might be my favorite smartwatch…if its battery life lasted beyond one day. If you’re curious where Apple is going next and have $350-$400 to spend, the entry-level Apple Watch might be fun to explore. Everyone else, I’d wait and see how the apps shape up, how the kinks get worked out, whether any software updates help with battery life. There’s a lot more time to decide.”
