Being the "owner" of product you would have more say on product design than the actual designers, and I don't mean the detailed look of it (unless you're a micromanaging egomaniac) but the broader strategy of the product. Where it fits in, what it does, how it's marketed and sold etc.
There are of course other tasks like educating the sales people and other stuff, but you're still a key player in the product development and design.
