Watch these kids develop a love-hate relationship with the Apple Watch
‘Can I keep it?’
Would the youngins love it, though?
“Eeeeeeh, new stuff!” 9 year-old Samirah excitedly exclaims at the beginning of the clip. That’s generally how we feel about brand-new gadgetry as well, and as expected, a bunch of them were rendered speechless by the Apple Watch’s sleek design and overall attractiveness. When it came down to testing out the smartwatch’s many functions, though, there were a few objections.
The consensus is in: The Apple Watch AKA “the future watch” is super-duper awesome, but needing an iPhone to get it to work is “just dumb.”
In reality, however, whether we need the Apple Watch or not, the fact that Apple made it will surely garner it a sizable fan following. 10 year-old Kacey said it best: “Some people are just like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is the new fad, I need it, I need it!’ If you don’t need your phone to do all these things with you, then I think this might be a really big hit and everybody would want it. I know I would.”
