Obviously I apologize if this is a false assertion, but my guess is you've never had a really top quality leather strap. I'd have said the same as you until I got a leather strap for my Omega (strap made by Omega), and the quality is just superb.  It doesn't look any different now to how it did brand new.
Thanks for pointing out they have actual size renderings on the Apple Store App.  I'd kind of assumed I'd be getting the 42mm, but having compared with my existing watches, 38mm will be better for me.   So, 38mm stainless steel with black leather strap and classic buckle for me.
My thoughts exactly.  I thought we'd managed to get over the spec wars - seemingly not. If you think the Apple Watch is shit, don't buy one.  I'm sure Apple will manage. If you like the look of it, pick one that you can afford and buy it.

Blew my mind when I decided I wanted to replace the strap on the Breitling.  I had no idea how much these things cost until then!
 Have you ever looked at how much watch straps cost for decent watches?   Here's the strap I currently have on my Breitling - http://www.authenticwatches.com/breitling-24-20-brown-crocodile-deployment-straps.html#.VP30e0I6vTw $595. The steel bracelet on my Omega - http://www.authenticwatches.com/omega-seamaster-bracelet-1502-824.html#.VP30tEI6vTw $695. The strap on my Baume & Mercier...
Many people on the internet struggle to grasp the concept that things cost money.
Pretty pleased with the price of this one.  I'd read some rumors that it was going to be ~$1500, which would have been far too much for me, but I'll happily spend up to $1000.
Is Excel finally multi-threaded?   For some of the massive spreadsheets I'm forced to use, it's significantly faster to launch Windows in Parallels and use Excel for Windows than it is to use the native Mac Excel.
Wow, this post has gone of on a strange weed based tangent.   As for he actual article, while new shirts are fine, I hope she starts tacking some of the bigger issues in the stores.  The one I used to go to in Valley Fair, San Jose has become an unpleasant experience.  There are far too many staff, who spend far too much of their time talking to each other.  Even when the store is busy.  The whole thing isn't nearly as slick as you would expect from Apple.   It was the...
