Could be. First the feature, then why it’s useless:
[Jony Ive says] Just yesterday, somebody was saying, ‘Wow, do you know what I just did? I set the alarm in the morning, and it woke just me by tapping my wrist. It didn’t wake my wife or my baby,’” he recounted. “Isn’t that fantastic?”
It is fantastic and it would make my getting up hours before Angela that much easier. So far, so Apple.
It’s beyond likely that the Apple Watch will need charging up every night. Maybe I’m jaded because I’ve had problems with the ordinary alarm on my iPhone, but I think this is going to be a feature that has to wait for better battery technology than currently exists.
Ive was talking at a San Francisco event; read Re/code’s full piece.
