Very interesting assessment of the Apple Watch by Jean-Louis Gassee. Those of you who have followed Apple since the early days will know that Gassee was a high ranking former executive at Apple Computer (1981 to 1990). After leaving Apple, Gassee went on to found Be, Inc., which created the Be OS. Gassee is now a General Partner of Allegis Capital.
The more I learn about the Apple Watch the more impressed I am by it. (BTW, the title of this post is from the original blog post on the Quartz blog) I wasn’t wrong, Gassee was. Once again, Apple has created a device that is much better and more innovative, by a wide margin, than everything else in the same product class.
