my guess on one possible advantage to removing the home button is in reducing the number of moving parts.  In most of my experiences with iOS devices, the home button seems to fail a lot.  If you read iMore at all, they have tons of DIY articles about fixing buttons, switches, etc. on the phone.  So my guess would be that the buttons seem to be in the majority of things that fail on the devices.  If you can reduce things that fail on the devices, then you can reduce the...
ugh, i have such a love/hate with apple rumors.  This has been talked about for years. Part of me thinks this is in the works but will probably never make the light of day, but the other half has some history.   There has been talk for years that when the first (Gen 1) iPhone was being developed, there was a known rift between Steve Jobs and Jonny Ive about the home button.  Ive never liked the home button, but Jobs insisted it had to be there.  Seems like now with Jobs...
"Those who want the most accurate distance, pace and calorie burn estimates should use Apple's Workout app. Owners are urged to calibrate Watch by taking the device on a run outside with iPhone. The Workout app will draw on iPhone's GPS capabilities to set stride and pace settings on a per-user basis, making distance readings much more accurate. " I have to shake my head at this. Although I haven't got my watch yet. My girlfriend's watch arrived 2 weeks ago. She has...
The iPhone is only 8 years old.  I think you're sensationalizing the notion that the traditional phone is dead and soon to be only legend but i get your point.  How soon we all forget we once had pagers and phones with cords :P 
 thanks!
I think the conclusion have drawn here is that I believe (based on my opinion and perception after trying it on) is that Apple didn't make a device that feels like a watch.  They made a computer that straps to your wrist.  It has watch-like elements, but it just doesn't feel like a watch.  Much like the iPhone doesn't feel like a phone.   Now, that doesn't mean i don't like the device.  The feature set is very nice and I can see getting a lot of use out of it.   I...
Perception and personal preference is entirely psychological (you stating the obvious), but that doesn't mean my opinion has any less logical validity than your's or anyone else's.  And I can tell you, i'm not the only one that I know that thinks this.   Again, please re-read what i said, and my further clarification.  I said the crown felt cheap (loose light feel is probably more accurate...which i did say also), and I even further clarified this.  When I adjust the...
Don't mince my words.  I've been clear with my opinions.
I had my try-on with two other friends and we all felt the Stainless models did not feel like a steel watch.  More like plated.my 22 year-old Swiss Army Officer's 1884 (c1993) watch is 136g.  It made a difference. I think whatever they polish the steel with made it feel soft.  Could also have been the ceramic backing felt off on the skin as well.Regardless, I felt little difference between the Steel and AI.  Obviously the link band gave it a slightly more substantial...
Mine did not end in a sale.   What I experienced when putting on the Apple Watch (stainless model) was the exact opposite of what I expected.  This is what I expected: Good weight, cool feel of metal to the skin.  Solid.    Smooth operation of dial and features (1).  The Apple Watch is none of that.  It felt warm, soft, lightweight and plastic-y.  Almost like a chrome-plated cast-metal body.  It felt delicate.  It did not feel like $549 (starting price).  The digital...
