“Brian Blair of Rosenblatt Securities, who has a Buy rating on Apple, nevertheless writes that he ‘remains skeptical’ of the outcome of Apple Watch, which went on sale last month, given ‘I’m not convinced that I need a wearable on my wrist every day,’ Tiernan Ray reports for Barron’s.

Ray reports, “To that point, there’s no ‘killer app’ for Apple Watch: ‘The main reason for my skepticism with the Apple Watch is that there still isn’t a killer application for it. There isn’t a single feature that is causing the masses to say ‘I need that.’ When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone in 2007, it was ‘an iPod, a phone and an internet communicator.’ It was obvious why you wanted it. The must-have/ use case for the Apple Watch is still unclear.'”

MacDailyNews Take: Apple Watch is an iPod, an electronic wallet, and a [fill in the blank: weather forecaster, gaming device, wrist messenger, sportscaster, heart rate monitor, etc., etc. etc.]

Beyond the fact that it is a miniature computer on your wrist and offers an initial reaction of ‘gee whiz’, it’s not certain why we need it. – Brian Blair

MacDailyNews Take: But, Brian, you just said it: “It is a miniature computer on your wrist.” Think of all that entails!

At my core, I am a consumer electronics aficionado. With nearly every major consumer product of the last 20 years, I have had an ‘aha’ moment that allowed me to see the opportunity for the product/platform and to visualize its potential impact. I have had moments like this with many devices and platforms and I remember those feelings well and with clarity. I had one with the Nintendo NES, the Nintendo Wii, the Nintendo GameBoy, the original US Robotics Palm Pilot, Motorola’s StarTAC phone, the original pager-style Blackberry, the first generation iPhone and the first generation iPad – to name a few. I haven’t yet had that moment with the Watch. – Brian Blair

MacDailyNews Take: After reading the whole thing, we’re not sure Blair even has an Apple Watch on his wrist. Perhaps that’s the real reason why he’s still waiting for his “aha” moment.

Maybe he’s just going off of his prior Pebble experience and a bunch of Apple Watch videos. That’s what his opinion feels like, to those who’ve been living with Apple Watches on their wrists for nearly two weeks. When people ask us what does it do, we say “What doesn’t it do?!” Apple Watch abounds with “aha” moments!
