Re: Advanced Technology Group
@SunitaT0, modular design might be the answer for the consumer segment. It will allow consumers to improve their device/modules as and when, the consumer finds a new use case that is appealing. The downside of modular design is that for it to be truly successful, large economies of scale needs to be in existence.

Re: Slack
Invoice2Go has many advantages especially if you are not under the canopy of the same department, even then you can log hours and get payment notifications. When this data is shared with the payment database, analysts can work out who gets what amount of money. I have always seen a lot of confusion in this matter, some people claim more and get less, while some people are paid less even though they log more number of average hours than most. Problem? Solved.

@Brian: The wearables can have all sorts of sensors, however the consumer market knows and understands a lot less than we think we know. The wearables can only improve upon themselves if the distribution channels give them reasons to update their hardware and software.

@yalanand: For someone who always has to deal with Powerpoint presentations, the watch remote is a really good excuse to deliver the presentataion with style.

Re: Advanced Technology Group
I feel that the wearable market might get its big break in the enterprise. Most devices have been produced with consumers in mind and have eventually, found their way into the enterprise. But, if wearable device producers pack the right sensors in the device then, the enterprise will provision resources at an extremely fast pace to try and enable higher productivity.

Re: Slack
Invoice2Go caught my attention as well. I can imagine a construction and renovation business that have their employees working on multiple sites at the same time in any given payment cycle, managing the process of tracking and logging time in an automated fashion.

Advanced Technology Group
If the Enterprise has an Advanced Technology Group (or some group with the function of looking at new technologies and adapting them for the enterprise), then they should be hard at work on the Apple Watch to figure out there the technology can fit/expand/save/enable workflow, etc., the enterprise. Along with the business case, should be a slam dunk for development. But if Apple keeps the devices off the market/makes them difficult to get, then Large Enterprise adoption will take longer.

Re: Slack
Invoice2Go and PowerPoint remote are really nice additions. I have to say. I was skeptical about smart watches but having seen the powerpoint remote I really think this adds to the style and oomph factor in the workplace.

Slack
Slack seems to be a nice way of communicating between cubicles. New technology that uses communication always creates a buzz inside the office. Everyone wants a piece of that technology, but the greater thing is that you can also share your work.
