James’ Thoughts on Apple Wearables
There are some arguments floating around which I’ll sum up here:
- A wearable product could not sell at the same volume as the iPhone, even at a sub $200 price point
- A sub $200 product selling in significantly lower volume than the iPhone/iPad will not move the needle for apple
- The iPhone is so profitable for Apple at least in part because of Carrier subsidies, which is a market distortion they will not be able to reproduce elsewhere.
What if Apple could reproduce the market distortion they have with iPhone? Health insurance companies give their customers a break if they go to the gym, and they cover preventative care. It makes business sense.
Would Health insurance companies cover wearables that provide detailed health tracking?
My take: If there’s a company that could make it happen, It’s Apple.
