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.
I know barely a pixel more than this: an iPhone recharger that uses AA batteries is coming soon. I don’t think I need to know much more than that, though the price and whether it’ll be available in the UK would be handy.
Here’s the pixel more I know; there will be a launch in nine days time at Oivo.
Go take a look now because the minimal details available so far include a photo of what it’ll look like.
I should say, by the way, that I think there is bugger-all chance that this will also recharge an iPad. In case you were wondering.
