    I'd like to hear about the battery life before getting overly excited about it.

    It's bad.

    I finally was able to look at all the updated images. I'm convinced more than ever that it's OLED and one photo with a guy splashing water makes me want to believe it'll be IP67 rated.

    Isn't it AMOLED?

    I'm not sure what you mean. I don't recall reading or hearing anything about the specific display type being used. By OLED I specifically mean Active-Matrix OLED because Passive-Matrix OLED doesn't make any sense.

    I thought that was settled, it's LG's flexible OLED display.

    I still can't find anything on their site.

    Spent a good half an hour ogling the site! There are a few repeated superlatives, but the screenshots and the feature-list made me drool! I want this soon.

     

    The good news is that it still says 'Early 2015'! With luck we'll see it on 30th of June 2015!!

    So I'm not sure if this is indicative of the 38mm and 42mm ?Watches requiring different sized MagSafe chargers, but the ceramic or composite* backings are not the same size. So the button and digital crown are the same size on each, but the casing, display, watch band, ceramic or composite back, and the sensor windows are different sizes.

    That's unique for Apple as it is, but would even be more so if the MagSafe charger isn't designed for both sizes. My guess is that it is designed for both.

    * I just noticed ?Watch Sport doesn't have a ceramic back.

    The state they're in? You mean the best mobile and desktop OSes that Apple has ever released? I haven't had a single issue with either Yosemite or iOS8, and they contain a metric shitload of new features. Apple can walk and chew gum at the same time. Or do you think if the Watch didn't exist, everything would be 100% bug free?

    You haven't had a single issue? Good for you. Plenty of others have, iOS 8 definitely shipped before it was ready,

    Right.... What source hey buddy?

     

    1 day intense use for the small watch (40% smaller than the big one, extrapolate from that) (Direct from Cook's mouth).

     

    That's better than the rest already since nobody's getting close to 1 day from intense use right now. even on their much bigger watches).

     

    You do like to troll hey, Frosty...

    i will not lie, i thought the moto 360 was looking good when i first saw it. better than whatever the hell samsung was trying to send out. i was hoping that apple's would be better. and i am ashamed i was hoping. apple watch is, in my opinion, awesome, far and away better than the competition. 

    that is until the copying machines are fired up.

    I thought the Moto 360 270 looked great when compared to other "smartwatches" but it was never a high-quality looking wrist-worn device. ?Watch, while I don't care for the design, looks like it's brilliantly crafted.

    You'll have to wait until the product ships and feedback comes in from actual consumers.

     

    See you next year!

    You can get similar workmanship from a $160 diver's watch.

     

    By definition, a diver's watch must be extremely well crafted to withstand the enormous pressures. A poorly made timepiece (crystal, back, crown, gaskets, strap, etc.) will fail.

     

    I have a quartz chronograph rated for 100 meters, an automatic diver's watch rated for 200 meters. Both are extremely well crafted, yet one would expect them to be. The chronograph is over thirty years old and still has its original stainless steel wristband.

     

    Sadly, many of today's American consumers no longer have the expectation or hope to purchase a well made wearable item that will last for years, if not decades. A great watch should last 2-4 years, it should last 2-4 decades, even longer. Just look at the forgettable poorly made garbage that people put on their feet and call "shoes."

     

    I know I'm old-school in this regard, but I would prefer to wear an old watch on my wrist, not a new one. An old watch has more character and history than something that just came out of a box. Even if you are wearing a new suit and new shoes, the one piece of fashion that can be old is the wristwatch.

     

    Many here seem to be wide-eyed surprised by the exacting finish and detailed craftsmanship of the Apple Watch. I'm not because that's how decent watches have been made for centuries. That's part of what Jonny was alluding to when he used the term "historical significance" during the prolonged design phase of the Apple Watch.

     

    If you want to be stunned by a timepiece, go to a clock museum and look at something a hundred or two hundred years old.

     

    Apple certainly isn't breaking any new ground in the physical design of their watch.

    Centuries? bah.

    Our family timepiece has been around for millennia.
