    Not as fashion accessories.  Watches represent a very personal item as well as the importance throughout history of an accurate timepiece; something we take for granted these days.

    I definitely want to get one eventually. I just can't justify the cost at the moment. The only thing that really interests me is Apple Pay. I'm not a very active guy but I like to keep tabs on my health. I can't justify spending $350 minimum on a heart rate monitor. Once it gets more sensors it will grab my attention more. I'll also have plenty of money saved for one by then :-)

    Historical implications? Barf.
    An Apple TV? - maybe.
    A digital wristwatch? Puhleez.

    Also I'm interested to see what developers do with it. If they can add worthy add-ons using WatchKit to their iPhone apps I'll reconsider my decision not to buy one for now.

    On a happier note, I'm not proud to say that I've bought a 128GB, space grey wifi iPad Air 2 with red Smart Cover. Haven't unboxed it yet, but I hope to see some kind of improvement over my trusty iPad 2.

    Congrats. Did you get wifi or cellular this time? I'm thinking of getting the same but wifi only this time as it's so much faster.

    Funny how if you don't like one Apple product you're deemed a troll here- so very simpleminded- or is it immature or both?

    640K is all you'll ever need.

    If he was, you'd declare it obvious promotion, and therefore a meaningless gesture.

    I suppose it gives Ive something to do. Better than twiddling his thumbs.

    Time will tell.

     

    Some of us didn't see the iPhone as that big of a deal. "I mean, typing on a screen? My current phone works just fine."

     

    Who knows, but the watch won't gain traction for a couple of years. There has to also be the killer apps that make it  indispensable. And it has to be iPhone-independent. And it needs to last longer than a day on a battery.

     

    Suppose most people will keep their $25 watches that do what they do for what they want them to do and last for several years on the same battery.

     

    The first Apple laptop with a trackpad was a game-changer. And the iMac and iPod, then the iPhone. 

     

    Watch?

    No I wouldn't but thank you for conjuring up such a stoopid scenario.
    Happy Halloween.

    Perhaps learn to read and comprehend things before posting?

    Wifi only. My iPad 2 was cellular, but I hardly needed it because I could tether my iPhone.

    Uh, what?  I'm missing the logic of getting two of them.

Just want to find out for myself whether this is (or will become) the next leap forward in personal tech.

    Maybe too much, but I wouldn't complain. I think it will set standard for the rest of wearable devices. The only complaint now is battery life. can it last 2-3 days/charge? 

    I don't compare Apple Watch with other smart watch, but with traditional Chronographic Seiko Kinetics or Citizen EcoDrive which is in the same price range, and I would say Apple Watch blow these out of the water by design, usability and functionality.

    I believe the color word you're both looking for is "red."  (I just discovered that the crayon box in the color picker was hit with the "flat" stick in Yosemite; it's not an improvement.)

    Rolex is for the party where you will show it off. It's a jewelry. Apple Watch is a functional piece of modern microcomputer on the wrist which is capable to tell time too...precisely.

    That's why I feel confident to put my credit/debit cards in there. Otherwise, like Android open source, I woudn't.
