Not long ago Apple launched its first smartwatch, Apple Watch, during the event ” Spring Forward”.

The new Apple Watch’s battery has an 18 hours life, under moderate use, you can do mobile payments and has support from some popular applications. In order for this device to be a success, it must become indispensable for users, according to some analysts and experts.
