Jurassic World was the first movie where the 3D technology actually enhanced my movie experience (and didn't just make me dizzy!). It felt like I was on a roller coaster at Universal Studio, and I loved it! Ever since then, I've started going to movie theaters more often just to get this 3D experience. In other words, the 3D technology is the new "killer feature" of movie theaters in the age where we can get any movie on demand in the comfort of our home.

This, of course, made me think of the question I'm sure we've all been thinking - what is that "killer feature" of the Apple Watch? Are we just all waiting for that one "killer app" to come along and make consumers go gaga for the Watch?

For me, the fitness tracking is that killer feature. I wear my watch wherever I go somewhere so I can get credit for it. But, as @ksegall points out, there might not be that one-size-fits-all killer feature or app for the Watch, and that's ok.
