Here's the thing for me: For the first time ever, I'm thinking Jony f*cuked up. The whole Apple Watch story has been about how meticulous they've been. All the metallurgy videos, because...well...metal. I even dug the videos showing the Mac Pro assembly last year. Very cool. But...Jony could have at least given a nod to the idea of standardizing parts. There is *no reason* why the 42mm version has to have the same back/sensor/charging array as the 38mm version. It even...
Yes, really. $10 is important to me.
The level of incivility in this thread is...disappointing.
What is premium about needing a bigger charger plug?
Well...it's a Big Deal(tm) to me. And I will assume you mean $10 isn't a Big Deal(tm) to you. It is A Big Deal(tm) to me because it feels like Apple is charging(!) $10 because they can, not because of value or cost. Oh, I suppose maybe the mechanisms are different, but Jony was so big about the meticulousness of the product, they missed having a standardized size for the charger plug (that is, admittedly, a really nice design and feature)? I am reasonably sure it is...
A $10 upcharge for the larger charger is disappointing.   I'm curious if the strap changeout mechanism has a patent, and thus prohibits 3rd party watch bands. Betcha there is. Someone care to give a spin through the USPTO to confirm?
Yeesh...a $10 upcharge on the larger charger too. That's disappointing. Perhaps the biggest disappointment in a day full of let downs for me. Not one word on how long it takes to charge. But hey...video of terraced batteries in a MBA. Cool. But not interesting to me right now. Funny...I was watch Kevin Lynch's demo, and realized that just about everything he was showing me...could be done without an Apple Watch on the iPhone 6. Yes, some doodles, yes, some taptic...
I honestly dont know how I'd act or think if I had a million dollars. But I do hope Apple stops to think about that question.
This part of the event didn't surprise me at all. $10k was widely discussed. I am surprised at a general lack of discussion about it. Tim seemed to just brush by. No discussion about gold bands; upgrade or trade in; metallurgy. I've had to conclude that Apple still doesn't know themselves, and are remaining silent about as many details as they can. But 6 months after the reveal? Like the movie "Apollo 13 when Tom Hanks/Jim Lovell concludes MCC still hasn't figured out...
Anyone see a price list on all the bands? I'm a big believer in Apple Watch, and a Big Fan of Tim and company. But this is disappointing. Sure, research kit looks cool. 10 minutes of tech into? Supermodel saying how she loves half marathons in Africa wearing a "rubber" band? Comparatively, Tim's discussion of the pricing seemed dismissive; the metallurgy videos somehow showing the value. Yes, you worked hard. Yes, they're nice. Yes, they can do a lot. But...you need to...
