This is going to be an interesting launch. I'm not a great Apple fan, more on a moral and idealistic level than because of the hardware, but I can admit that the phones look reasonably cool. I can't however envisage seeing one of these watches on someone's wrist without thinking the wearer must be a bit of a c0ck. For the record I wear a sony Sw2 and really like it (great battery life, pretty thin and all the notifications I need) but just can't see the Apple watch ever looking like anything more than a nerdy toy for folk with too much cash and no originality. As I said, I'm watching with interest.
oh well its there loss. I will go to Apple shop direct for mine. cant wait.
This is the only apple product report iv seen that has a balanced amount of logical people commenting.Instead of just having loyalist and trolls.

Human race as a whole is far from an intelligent species, heck it's one of the most stupid ones. It's only the individuals that make humanity seem intelligent.
You can't polish a turd but with a billion dollar marketing budget they are certainly going to try. I love my gadgets but I still won't consider buying this thing it's hideous! Far prefer the Huawei watch which actually looks like one should.
makes no difference how apple markets it's products it's band of sheep will spend spend spend even if apple made a product that is invisible or made of water....
Lol...don't worry apple your fans will buy it in millions.doesn't matter how is it or how much it costs.for them its life saving drug.

Marketing is the key word here.
im afraid you are wrong......even if apple made a device made out of cheese it would still sell like hotcakes even tho the equivelant equipment is better this is a lame device which does not even look that nice but will no doubt still top the shipping sales because people are guilable to think they need it because its the best yet most will use it as a watch and not much else lol
Obviously the directors at Carphone are not all on the same page;
Doesn't Grahm Stapleton know it was just a fews weeks back his dumb boss Sebastian James made a public statement doubting the success of the Apple Watch?
And now Apple isn't giving them any to sell, surprise surprise.
