The company is pulling in on all their stops to make their product more appealing, and now, a thick wrist won’t stop you from getting an Apple Watch anymore. After official discussions were dominated by customer complaints and company officials claiming that they’re unable to comfortably wear the smart watch, a modification was called for.
Or, more accurately, an addition. Apple has now introduced its customers to the Link Bracelet Kit, an option which includes six more stainless steel links to be added that will top up the length of the usual wrist band to 245 millimeters. It could be used for those with generally chunkier wrists or suffering from medical conditions to wear the Apple watch far more comfortably.
However, the Link Bracelet Kit only comes in silver, with the ‘Space Black’ option currently not included for the darker model. It appears that Apple is accommodating to its customers, but will be keeping an eye on sales to ascertain if further options should be required.
At the same time as the ‘extra links’ option has been made available, the company has released the L and XL sizes for the rubber Sports Band of their Apple Watch product. For those who are more keen on the sporty and active version of the smart watch, there is the option of purchasing a 245 millimeters band as well.
Once again though, Apple is limiting the release for those with thicker wrists in regards to colors, putting it up for offer only for the simple black and white models, while their more vividly colored variants remain within regular ranges. No word has been released yet if or when the longer option will be available for all models.
It seems that the company is doing all they can to present their smart watch as a more viable option than its competitors ahead of the release of the next-gen Apple Watch. The statistics have shown worrying numbers and their sales have since plummeted, but it’s quite likely they’re staging a comeback.
They’re widening their customer range, developing many other business apps and focusing their efforts in making the next iWatch into a successful product that will hopefully reach the excellent sales of their more popular iPhone or iPad.
However, no promises can be made yet, and a small adjustment to their options will not guarantee a success, but it could sent a louder message that they are becoming more accommodating to potential clients.
