    Plenty of people around the globe spend $5k a day on things less essential than an Apple Watch. The gold model isn't for the masses. It's for the super wealthy that can and will buy a new $5k model every year.

    I think it will trickle down to a second hand market for the less wealthy population

Apple will make a ton of money from initial interest, then they'll stop dev on it in a few years.

    yeah, they'll just toss this failed platform with all their other failed platforms. /s


    the iPod originally needed a mac. techies called it "smaller than a nomad. lame." it evolved.

    what could apple do to make the modular watch system on a chip easy to replace during service? hmm...keep it, uh, modular?
