    I think it’s a smart move, especially with the pandemic a lot of people are more health conscious. If they can make the Apple Watch can be an official medical device that insurance or HSA funds can cover they can secure a huge bag. They have the money to make the official shift to legitimize themselves especially if the sensors are very accurate.

    Focus on creativity and spend trillions and every last dime u have in innovation

    Samsung is advancing insanely fast.

    If u don't create something new. something creative.

    U lost the game. U lost the market. U lost the cash.
    Then go invest in selling socks and panties. If u have some cash left

    Apple are not an innovator. They're the most successful marketing company out there. They 'invented' nothing. They 'smoothened' it and marketed it perfectly to consumers.
    Let's get the 'facts' straight here CNBC. Plenty of touch screens and 'smartphones' existed before the iPhone.
