Apple iWatch poll ends, iOS 7 design poll begins

With over 1200 votes from iLounge readers, our latest recent poll—“What feature would most compel you to buy an Apple iWatch?”—has now ended. With serious rumours of an Apple smart watch surfacing over the past few weeks, we asked readers to let us know what features they would find most compelling in an Apple-designed smart watch, or whether they were even interested in such a device at all.

Thirty-nine percent of respondents were generally uninterested in an Apple iWatch, split about evenly between not wanting a watch at all (19%) and not being interested specifically in a smart watch (20%). Of the respondents who would consider an iWatch, 18% were most interested in seeing notification display from their iOS devices, while 11% felt that the Apple industrial design would be compelling enough. Most of the remaining responses were split fairly evenly, with 10% looking for remote iOS device control, 9% for GPS and navigation features, and 7% for an ability to interact with Siri on their iOS devices. Lastly, 3% of readers indicated that standalone media playback would be a compelling feature, while another 3% suggested they’d want to see some other unspecified feature.
