Anyone who expected the Apple Watch — or any of the current crop of smartwatches — to yield a tiny new canvas for mobile TV, streaming video or Dick Tracy two-way “wrist TV” is bound to be disappointed.
The Apple Watch, launched with the Cupertino, Calif., magic factory’s usual fanfare, reps its first new product category in four years. The devices feature the company’s Retina high-resolution displays — but don’t include video-playback capabilities. Moreover, the smartwatches’ screens are just 1.5 inches or 1.7 inches (38 millimeters or 42 millimeters) high: hardly suitable for viewing even short-form video.
