Apple Watch and fitness: A couch potato's perspective

Can wearable technology help exercise haters get off the couch?

But here's the trick: I didn't buy the Watch because I wanted a fitness tracker. From my point of view, all this functionality is a happy accident that I gladly take advantage of, but that, on its own, would never lead me to invest in the time and money required to use a dedicated device.

Much like the iPhone has placed a camera in the hands of millions of people who would not otherwise be taking pictures with dedicated devices, then, the Watch's biggest innovation is that it has the potential of turning a large crowd of couch potatoes on to a more active lifestyle even if fitness is the last thing on their mind. And, if it worked for me, I'm sure it can work for anyone.
