MacVoices #21141: MacVoices Live – Subscription Revenue and the Apple Watch’s Health Capabilities (2)

Our MacVoices Live! discussion of Apple’s quarterly financial results continues as we look at the subscription revenue numbers, their implications, and how they are (or are not) calculated. We then start to examine how the Apple Watch’s health monitoring capabilities are being used, what it can and can’t do (at least right now), and where that fits in the strategy going forward. The panel of Jay MillerFrank PetrieDave Ginsburg, Mike SchmitzJim Rea, and Mark Fuccio offer their thoughts and some personal experiences. (Part 2)
