Eske Rahn, 05 Nov 2014What a relief! Only $4000 I thought it was going to be expensive.... /SAny time Apple sees an "opening"! Apple hits it hard.
Take the mini market, Apple releases the spec less iPad mini, the most expensive mini
Recently Apple released the iPad mini 3 which just add Apple Pay to the iPad mini
Apple didn't even bother to upgrade the iPhone6, for those who in 2012 started an iPhone5 contract now upgraded to same phone but bigger, http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=4910&idPhone2=6378
Now with Android smart watches, Apple see another "opening" and again its products are the costliest
The fact that they will need to be charged daily (and knowing Apple owners this WON'T prevent them from using it whilst on charge) really shows how impractical the device is
Models released for the higher income brackets.
Short answer if you have a phone why do you need a watch?
Padmasana, 05 Nov 2014I love how people here bash these prices, but to me they seem so much more reasonable than the... moreWell yes, but Rolex has its share of haters too, just like iPhone. If you want class, you go for A. Lange & Sohne, Breguet or Patek Philippe. If you want accuracy and low maintenance, go for Casio. Rolex spends more on marketing than all the other watch brands together, they make almost a million watches a year, and they are perceived as a brand for used car salesmen who want to show off. Shortly, people who buy a Rolex would buy an iPhone too, but having said that, why would they need an Apple watch too?
and 1 year warranty and will break constantly and have tons of problems then the apple watch s will come out
OMG... its cheaper than I thought for $4000 everybody can buy this. thanks apple
Eske Rahn, 05 Nov 2014What a relief! Only $4000 I thought it was going to be expensive.... /Scan we show it off in the pablic places? lol
I love how people here bash these prices, but to me they seem so much more reasonable than the prices of watches that just tell the time.
Hublot and Rolex could throw 35,000 price tags at you for watches that simply tell the time but Apple can't give you a piece of gold for 7 times less the price without you complaining.
A watch for such a big amount of money?????
Funniest part,They will still make a lot of sales out of it, People crazy for whatever apple produces whether it's crappy or not,They don't care,They just buy to show-off their money and class!!!
What a relief! Only $4000 I thought it was going to be expensive.... /S
Gibby, 05 Nov 2014It is pretty horrific & twice the price of the competition :S
Question for Mr Ives : -
H... moreHands down for the dumbest question in the comment section. LOL! Something 3rd grader could figure out. Or better read this for your information.
Tim said Apple Watch would arrive in "early 2015". Mid-February is both "Spring 2015" and "early 2015", by my reckoning. Looking forward to it. :)
if this sells then doctors are looking at a bright future - because a lot of heads will need examination.
Let me see if i'm getting this: it costs 150$ more to manufacture a tiny watch out of steel than out of aliminum? But then agai, we're talking about apple. I wonder why they didn't leave the first iphone 6 option at 8Gb internal storage.
Apple is becoming more of a status symbol company than a tech company.
Sadly the status symbol are favored mostly by people who don't have much of status.
