  6. 6. The Apple Watch, a clearly strong product The « must have » completed by the small details which make the difference The watch’s battery is lasting longer than expected and the device also saves the iPhone ‘s, which is beeing less requested Great integration of SIRI (timer, geolocalized reminders, calls or text messages) The « Glances » feature, overview of pre selected apps is very successful More than 3500 applications already available, with very good integration(Runtastic, Shazam, Citymapper, Voyages-SNCF…) The use of Handoff to maintain a multi-screen activity, or to follow notifications The advanced music control on iPhone (iTunes but also Spotify, Rdio or 8tracks) THE BONUS THE ESSENTIALS The user has the ability to trigger the iPhone’s camera using the watch The « Ping your phone» feature allows you to localize your iPhone left nearby Analyze and monitor your heart rate and share with your peers After tests, the watch seems to resist to water (Be careful however not to overuse since an oxidized watch isn’t guaranteed !)
  7. 7. The endless iOS VS Android battle Android watches also have reasons to shine More elaborate notifications settings Ability to use the WIFI to connect the watch to the phone Some rumors have been insinuating for some time that Android smartwatches will soon be compatible with Apple smartphones. A strategy which would allow the manufacturers to push their products on iPhone users by putting them directly in competition with Apple Watch. We’ll see what happens in the near future! A diversity of product (brand, shape, price) Apps are less dependent of the smartphone (GPS, music…) We are still facing a strong rivalry between SIRI Apple and Google Now (also available on iOS) Google offers a higher level of information during a search, but SIRI still holds the pole position (best integration of voice option, one-touch activation, a faster response time as well as an better integration on third party applications for the moment)

  11. 11. With the Apple Watch, we are facing the same challenges seen during the transition from the web to the mobile, but in a more emphasized way: it is necessary to go straight to the point. The noticeable difference is that on mobile the user is able to perform various actions, almost as many as on a desktop. With a watch, the user isn’t in an immersive experience because the watch experience has a very short time of use (6 to 10 seconds). The more transparent a service is, the more useful it will be! More than ever on mobile, the key is to seize the context. Which contents to send? To whom ? And especially when ? The customer and behavioural knowledge turns out even more essential. Edouard, UX Consultant @jcktt Our expert opinions We notice that the complexity in designing for a smartwatch is to focus around the user journey. Without an ultra-thin knowledge of the user needs it is not possible to offer a relevant service. Yet, an service that is not relevant on a day to day basis will not last a week, when the attraction around the “new toy” fades out. The definition of the notifications and their dosage must be surgical. A device which vibrates too often can soon become unpleasant and incite to deactivate applications. Be careful thus not to be too intrusive.

  15. 15. Our expert opinions Vincent, CEO The successful launch of the Apple Watch signs the real start of the wearables’ market. Despite the raised doubts during its announcement, the fact is, once again, that Apple « does » the market. Each device is specific and brings a new type of consumption. It is still too soon to draw conclusions on the impact of connected watches on digital services. We can however make an analogy between the arrival of smartwatches and the smartphones 10 years ago. If the smartphone was the screen always within reach, the watch is the screen always visible. It becomes the first digital contact point for a brand. This brings more proximity and opportunities for the brands, but also more requirements, the risk of intrusion becoming stronger. A reduced space and a restricted environment. Smartphones screen is 5 - 10 times smaller than a PC screen; the watch is 5 - 10 times smaller than a smartphone. It is thus the heart of the customer promise that must be carried on the watch. More closeness, more reactivity, less space, same technologies : we find the same challenges for the brands and the agencies than during the appearance of the smartphone, in an more extreme way. Now, more than ever, a user centric approach must be chosen to conceive a watch application, if one wants to become part of the few elected who will stay on the screen of the final client. The coupling with the smartphone will not be only technically challenging, there will be a dual use, watch-smartphone, of the applications. Looking at it this way, it is a major change of our digital consumption.
