Another take on Apple Watch's function(s)

I posted my thoughts on what the Apple Watch is for or who is it for and tried to draw some parallels to the iPhone. Horace Deidu has posted his take on this topic and there are clearly some points that the both of us agree upon! 

Of course, the reason iPhone outgrew its tentpoles is because of the app economy. 1.3 million apps does that to a product...

But this does not mean that the tentpoles used at launch are in any way in error. They are necessary to explain the value of a new category. The audience can’t be told “wait and see all the cool stuff you’ll be able to do with it”. They need to be told why it’s useful today. They speak in the language the audience can understand today...

Tentpoles therefore don’t define the product but do provide the starting blocks from which the initial buyers make a cognition leap. And once they’re off, the others will know where to go.
