I'm no troll, but I would agree with any troll who uses that argument, because if the celebrities have to be given one for free, then they're not exactly honestly endorsing the product.
And what is that class? Tiny, clumsy screens that are accessories to a smartphone that's easier to use.
What actual use has either the Apple Phone or any of it's kin? It lets those who rather neurotically check their iPhone screen every few minutes look at their watch instead. Apple's claiming that'll be better in a social setting, that others will find it less irritating.
Not so, when others see someone looking at their smartphone, they assume they're waiting for an important message. When that person keeps looking at their watch, they assume, "This person is so bored with me. He keeps checking watch for the time when he can leave."
There are actually some good ideas behind this, including a wrist or ankle device that signals specific events with a silent, selective vibration that others aren't aware of. That'll be a handy product but it's isn't one that has to sell for hundreds or thousands of dollars.
Must be just me, but I am having trouble following this sentence....
I'm saying this because you are offended when rich people get gifts.
Its all about capitalism. If you can't handle it go live in a communist country.
Did someone appoint you ruler of this Forum?

Afford them? They are getting paid to wear them.

Whether Apple paid them or not, this kind of attention is staggering in the caliber of celebrities and designers seen with the Apple Watch as well as the (high end) fashion market - a new target of Apple. Can you see Google or Samsung getting this attention? Maybe Google can pay them, but as leighr said, the celebrities will continue to wear Apple Watch personally.
I doubt Creepy Guy is still wearing his Gear.

"Trust me"? Why would be trust you? How about you supply a shred of evidence for your confident claim, instead of asking people to take it on faith from a random internet poster? You stated that they're being paid to wear them as FACT. Supply evidence, or STFU.
Apple has always given certain people early access to their products before the general public. How the hell did the Verge, Bloomburg, CNET, ect release Watch reviews weeks ago? Cause they got the Watch early. The same thing happens EVERY SINGLE FRIKEN YEAR for the new iPad, iPhones, and Mac's.
Now let Apple do what they do. If you don't like it go ahead take your money somewhere else.
I'm not talking about any review units of course.
You seem to have a problem with handling differing opinions. You should go and join ISIS.
And it is fully possible for me to not take my money elsewhere, and to also criticize Apple if I wish. The two are not mutually exclusive.
It's not just you.
LOL. Ironic. You just appoint yourself as ruler by telling me to grow up.
Not at all. That was short-hand way of making an observation that your posts in this thread are childish.
You normally post some pretty insightful stuff, but some -- like most of your rants, admonitions, and expletives in this thread -- are just silly.
Honestly these things mean nothing to me. So she's wearing an Apple Watch? Big deal. She's no different from Joe down the street. They're all just people. The fact that she's on TV and he isn't doesn't make me more likely to go by her apparent recommendations
They could make it from that platinium / moon dust with Ivory inlays from some near extinct animal, to really move the insane luxury needle ;-)
Ivory from a near extinct animal would most likely be illegal to sell or possess, but you can buy ivory from a Wooly Mammoth and lunar meteorites are available too, both quite reasonably priced, so no.
Beyonce is right handed.
Are people in this thread that naive, that they can't see through Apple ]['s sudden passion on this issue? Enter literally ANY thread on this board that references a colored person, no matter what the topic, and you will see Apple ][ in there, coincidentally with anger, rage, and criticism towards Apple. It's an absolute guarantee. Doesn't matter if that individual is a civil rights activist, a musician, an artist, or celebrity. So please, stop engaging Apple ][ on this false premise and see him for what he is.
In fairness, he did rail equally vehemently against Karl Lagerfeld (or whatever his name is).

To me it seems like a desperate and unnecessary move on Apple's part, not to mention the potential negative implications that it has for their image.
Yes, I did mention that Macintosh story earlier in the thread. People keep mentioning that same story, which I think kind of proves that this is rare for Apple, and not something that was widely done.
