It's going to sell a lot and Apple Pay with Apple Watch going to change how we pay stuffs.
It's going to be main thing to sell these watches.
Haven't had watch in 20 years, but when Apple Pay coming to my country i'm very interested to buy one.
the drama of these days is that the design sells well and not anything else...
If the new mercedes s classe looks very nice and has a very nice design will sell much more than otherwise.
and so on even a washer machine if its looks nice will sell like crazy even if it will break in 2 years..
you embarrass yourself , many many people said for YEARS , APPLE IS DOOMED omg is dead...BUT there it is, the top most valued brands in the world with more money then my country
I stopped wearing my Tag Heuer autograph in the early 2000s, wouldn't wear one of these even if someone gave it to me. So, yeah he's pretty dead on.
I think Apple is a more fashion company than a functional one
I mean now is more clearly with the hiring of fashion people and after the event on the hands on area is clearly, that apple watch si more an object of fashion more than a "smart" one and the same i can tell with that new macbook. Yes they really are in person very nice, the gold macbook and gold watch with pink leather band women will buy them like crazy because of its look and not should be. A laptop and a watch that last at least 1 week on battery
Every day is not a Sunday, as Apple has been tammed, 100$wud be fine, but why pay far more fr a smart watch, when technology is obsolete within months. Than buy a Tag Heurer watch fr Life. Iphone has lost its charm with a qtr, my country its on installment s. More supply than demand.
Not exactly a watch or smartwatch fan. But surely the price these companies put on 'em is overkill. Branding is good. But this pricing strategy will surely lead Apple's downfall somewhere in the near future.
lets go, 15 Mar 2015Whilst "watch" is NOT a legal term , thus barring Apple from calling it a watch. ... moreYeah... Watch how long the battery lasts. Who wants a watch that will switch off before their phone does? Then again people don't buy apple products for their functionality as android clearly has more of that... So this may well sell to those people who have too much money and no sense. What's next?... The extended battery for your smart watch!
Button line is this. Until Apple watch there were smartwatches on the market for a decade i think, at least Sony had from a long time.
Now when Apple was rumoured and release the watch at least 3-4 big luxury watch companies are getting carryed in the no more 100% mechanical watch to a semi mechanical+smart watch
Is the power Apple has in this world. To make everyone get on board

Theirs a reason why the swiss would call it a chronograph instead of just a simple watch you know.Its a piece of art to engineers.
This is not meant to be sold in millions,it's a watch object, but this will kill the iPad.Because a man besides clothes he can take a phone and a watch with him without any trouble, but if you are not a woman that carry purse the ipad needs a travel bag or purse or anything. It doesn't fit fashion into a pocket
And now really if you want to carry an ipad with you, why don't you want the new macbook with a complete OS experience ?!

The precision and manufacturing process are top noch. And most people who wear a wach will like that instead to be a very smart object like samsung gear s
Apple Watch will be Dead On Arrival. No one talks about it anymore.
Unlike the iPhone and iPad, which while I don't like them I can't objectively say they'd fail, the Apple Watch could be the worst executed device since the Newton... Or that Moto-Apple collaboration project in 2005.
This has to be the most restrictive smartwatch on the market, and the pricing surely makes the least sense given a bands price versus the watch itself.
Same happens with an s classe after 4-5 years you want a new one
Technology move on
Whilst "watch" is NOT a legal term , thus barring Apple from calling it a watch.
The problem I have is that it is NOT a watch as it NEEDS to last run for OVER 24 hours ie measure time over an extended period.it will run for 18 hours
so it is a TIMER.
(I know electric clock cut the power etc..)
But I am NOT going to reseacrh this to prove a point, I know it is NOT a watch for that reason and I bet someone will take Apple to task for that.
