One of the mantra’s of Apple detractors is that Apple no longer can innovate. They point to Apple evolving products instead of breaking any new ground and some maintain that Apple has not innovated much since the iPhone was released in 2007. They say that the iPad is just an overgrown iPhone. While the Apple Watch does break some new ground for them as a new product, they don’t give Apple many props since it was not the first smart watch and its roots lie in health trackers that were in the market years before Apple introduced the Apple Watch series 1 product.
