i wonder how many of the people complaining have tried the apple watch never mind the alternatives.
i have had a go on various products and i must say out of all of the the apple one is by far the most user friendly and practical.
yes some are very expesive which some may prefer to buy if they have a load of cash but for most the sport will do (i prefer it due to the weight diff)
when you compare the apple watch price to a samsung alternative on launch day i bet the price diff isnt that much

The game is changing. In other news, Halo is released on iOS. No plans for Android.

While I get you're being facetious, that's actually a valid question. Don't think they've been around as a purchasable item to be able to say for definite, though I'd hope a smartwatch would be a valid item for longer than it's companion phones simply due to different usage criteria.
Of course this isn't factoring in the often stupidly short gap between "generations" in consumer tech right now.
If Apple offered branding at a great price. People would still line up to have an Apple logo burnt onto their butt. They would then proceed to tell the world that it is the best branding that they ever had.
Finally the itime (err ifail or whatever) will be available in June... and we will have people talking slowly and loudly into their watches, and fiddling with that digital crown towards unforeseen productivity and the greater good of all.
And that "Edition" edition ! The prized possesion of the elite. A highly sophisticated, luxurious (read : insanely expensive) timepiece. Wait ... whats the catch... Oh i forgot, the usable lifetime of a smartwatch ?!!
it doesnt matter, people will buy any way!!! Tks to apple logo. Probably people will buy diapers if it has apple logo on it :D, LOL
I'd never fall for this con - stopped wearing a watch about 20 years ago (maybe more?).
Keep your trash, Apple, Samsung, Pebble etc., as far as I'm concerned.
