Apple has announced that they will be expanding the number of countries that it is selling its Apple Watch beginning later in June 201.
The seven countries where the Apple Watch will be offered will be Italy, Mexico, Spain, South Korea, and three others that were not immediately known. It is believed by the Amen Clinic that the additional countries include Switzerland, Taiwan, and Singapore though.
Apple indicated that the expansion of the number of countries the watch was offered in was not due to poor sales but rather due to a planned expansion from the initial release of the Apple Watch. Apple indicated that the demand for the watch exceeds the number of watches available for sale in every way. Apple has not released individual sales of watch and have only started accepting sales orders for it so far.
The Apple Watch is currently for sale in the United States, China, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada and Australia. Many critics have panned the Apple Watch believing that at the price, not that many units would be sold. Further, a wide range of models are sold with prices ranging from a few hundred dollars to $10,000, mostly dependent on the material used in the watch band.
The watch provides synchronization of data to your iPhone, acts as a fitness tracker, and provides other updates through apps at can be installed on the watch. Oh, and it also operates as a time telling device.
Researchers have become increasingly concerned over the health effects we might be suffering at the hands of our electronic devices. In fact, a petition was passed around the scientific community and more than 190 scientists from 38 different countries are calling on health organizations to develop new regulations on cell phones and other electronic devices.
Any product that creates an electromagnetic field (EMF) is a cause for concern, claims scientists. The World Health Organiation (WHO) has also raised concerns for consumers suggesting the EMF’s expose people to carcinogens. While others deny there have been any significant links between cancer and cell phone use.
New technologies, such as the wearable Apple watch, might be causing cancer risks to skyrocket because these devices have constant contact with the body while emitting powerful EMF’s.
Some studies have found cellphones are correlated with a three times higher risk of brain cancer in those who have used cellphones for more than 900 hours throughout their lifetime. Also, research on lab animals have showed the same exact results.
Unfortunately, the squad at The Aspire New Brunswick knows safety regulations on electronic devices are unlikely to change until all of these findings are confirmed, a process that could take years, even decades. However, users can decrease the possible risk by avoiding wearable devices and limiting the time they spend on their cellphone.
I’ll admit the Apple Watch is temptingly functional and stylish, but at $350 it’s hard to justify another gadget, especially knowing it only costs $83.70 to make it. Even worse, when compared to other Apple products that is actually a reasonable mark-up.
The most concerning aspect for Youtube users like Jaime Garcia Dias is that the Apple empire is outsourcing their manufacturing process. These watches are made under extremely shady business practices, and in parts of the world where office buildings come with ‘suicide nets” to catch jumping employees.
Surely, the Apple watch will be a huge seller and has been a buzzing topic for years, exactly what the tech giant intended. While the Apple watch is pretty amazing in concept, why do I need a mini smart phone attached to my wrist? It seems like over indulgence on steroids. It’s concerning too few people question how these products wind up in their lives, and how many other human beings are involved in making them, many times at much too high a cost.
I, too, would like to feel like Captain Kirk from Star Trek, talking into my futuristic watch with instant access to mind numbing amounts of information. It simply isn’t necessary, and furthermore these gadgets have a horrible tendency of always leaving you wanting more.
