Apple is well known for adapting to consumer needs and constantly trying to keep up to date with user requests and desires. They have this exquisite sense of smell when it comes to what masses fancy and they always manage to provide their products without flaw. Or almost without flaw, as in the recent months we have witnessed a recess time and a constant struggle for the tech giant to keep up with all market requests. But the tech giant is now back from stagnation, as their Apple Watch is completed by wristbands designed for wider wrists.
They still need to get some work done in order to make the Apple Watch the best product it can be. First of all, it must appeal to people with diverse shapes and sizes and this is where their focus lies now. In an effort to make the device more appealing and accessible to customers, the tech giant has produced a new Apple Watch Link Bracelet Kit, designed to make the accessory appeal to larger masses. The kit includes six additional stainless steel links and the bracelet can now be extended to larger wrists that are larger than 205mm in diameter. Apple offers an additional 40 mm of wiggle room for those with more generous appendages to be able to easily wear an Apple Watch.
The Sport Band will be available in large and extra-large sizes at no complementary costs, but exclusively for owners of 42 mm watches. A link bracelet kit will be sold for $49 and lets owners of the 42 mm Link Bracelet expand the size of the wristband by no less than six additional links.
Moreover, the Modern Buckle which is sold exclusively for 38 mm watches, can be bought as a unique accessory for $249 in small, medium or large sizes.
Apple reconsidering wristbands comes after receiving complaints from users who found the bands too tight for their wrists. Apple’s effort to introduce a new kit for the Link Bracelet and new sizing options for the Sport Band is quite the first initiative towards offering their product to a wider range of consumers.
Apart from the physical functionalities of the highly commented Apple Watch, there are still flaws in the system that must see the light of improvement. The Watch has not been received with the level of enthusiasm Apple has prospected, as it failed to satisfy consumers, reviewers and critics at the same time. The reaction is somewhat natural, as the product is unique and it is one of the first attempts to envision and ultimately release such a daring piece of technology. The good news is that there is still room for improvement and Apple will most certainly manage to come up with a decently upgraded alternative to its initial product.
