Jon Steinberg, Daily Mail North America CEO, provides his outlook for Apple Watch and how the new device will stack up against competition.
What’s amazing, coming out of CES… the amount of tracking devices and wrist devices is almost mind-boggling to me… and Apple, in my opinion, is going to basically destroy all of these guys. None of them are really priced that much cheaper, they’re all at about $150 or $250, if you’re going to buy a wearable… I don’t know what you possibly buy one of these. All these basically do, most of them, are accelerometers, all they do really is track how much you move, the functionality is very limited, so I think if you’re going to buy [a wearable], it’s going to be Apple. COming out in March, I don;t see people buying these other devices we’re seeing at CES. – Jon Steinberg, Daily Mail North America CEO
