More than half of Apple Watch owners say they are “very satisfied” with all the apparatus, says a survey from market researcher 451 Research.
Just 6 percent said they are “somewhat dissatisfied” with it, with another 6 percent saying they are “very dissatisfied.”
Conducted by 451 Research through August 4, the survey focused on similar products on general satisfaction and important likes and dislikes of the Apple Watch along with its effect.
Although the survey quantified responses from simply 145 folks, extrapolating those results into a larger audience places the watch in an extremely positive light. Trying to create an item that’s all things to all individuals could’ve resulted in a lemon. But the many attributes could possibly be helping the watch compete with other wearables available on the market.
“Our latest survey shows the Apple Watch is off to a great start, with high marks in satisfaction and a strong likelihood of recommending it to others,” 451 Research survey research director Andy Golub said in a press release. “The wide range of features on the device and its frequent usage among owners pose a clear threat to health and fitness monitors and traditional watches.”
Among the Apple Watch owners 28 percent said their expectations are exceeded by the device, while 51 percent said it meets with them. Asked if they’d urge the watch to another person, 55 percent said they had be very likely to do so, while 28 percent said they’d not be somewhat unlikely.
What do owners like and dislike in regards to the Apple Watch?
As expressed by 49 percent of the polled notifications was the top like. Notifications contain new e-mails, phone calls, calendar appointments, messages and other alerts sent out of your iPhone. The Apple Watch can monitor and keep track of your daily tasks, for example walking, cycling, jogging and other forms of exercise.
And also 30 percent of owners cited as a top feature the design of the watch.
On the downside, 37 percent of the polled said the battery life is too brief, while 31 percent mentioned the watch’s reliance on the iPhone. Other gripes comprised the dearth of waterproofing, the small selection of the high learning curve and apps. And 29 percent complained concerning the lag time when scrolling through or refreshing the screen of the watch.
One or more of the weaknesses will be addressed in the second version of the Apple WatchOS, due to be published on Wednesday. The newest version will decrease the reliance on the iPhone by bringing more native programs to the watch that can function independently.
The Apple Watch is shaping up to be a threat to similar apparatus based on the reactions of those polled.
Almost half the owners (46 percent) say they intended to obtain a physical fitness screen but deleted or put those plans on hold after buying an Apple Watch. And 69 percent said the Apple Watch has replaced the traditional watch which they wore every day or several times per week.
Finally, is the Apple Watch a technology device or a style statement? But 36 percent view it as both.
