My wife has hers and it's pretty cool..Does a lot more than my TAG and cost a hellava lot less money..Apple products are not for everyone but everyone does want them. I'm sorry that you can not afford one but don't come on this site and be a hater..I tell ya what..I will sell you my wife's Gen 1 when I buy Gen 2..Ok?
I firmly believe in their current form the smartwatches are useless and no more than a fancy piece of chip and glass on your hand. This product line will soon be shelved by all.

So whilst I read, support and understand your comments, I have absolutely no idea re the TV ads. http://www.apple.com/watch/films/
Still there are some who will still buy it to those I say add an iPhone to the advert and ask if it still makes sense....

Still better than Google Glass tho. I'd want to punch the person wearing that, lol
They may want to remember that we are still waiting for availability, for most of the world its not available in any stores. Additionally, unfortunately the store availability will collide with start of summer vacation in several countries where people normally can afford the watch, not the best gadget buying time. Online-only availability has hurt sales but it could even out over some time. Also the need to order an appointment to try it on is a disastrous strategy. Furthermore, availability for the Christian confirmation season in northern Europe would have generated huge sales, im surprised that Apple does not know about that, its not uncommon that one kid get presents worth 15 to 20 thousand Euro total, and thats in markets where Android marketshare is in free fall among the young teens and girls refuse to go to school with Android phones because its so shameful to own, the Apple factor is very strong lately and would have sold tons of watches in this richest part of the world.
Morgan Stanley says 36M estimated demand/sale :
yes since apple fans live on a different planet then yes they will sell to aliens aswell lol
Really??? so apple also sell the watch to alien? the projection of earth population is only 7,7 billion peoples in 2020.
That's more than all Android and Casio watches combine!
Soon in 2017 Apple will hit the first 1 billionth sold. By 2020 they will reach 10 billionth!
Considering I haven't seen one in public sales are going to be closer to 5 million since most people are waiting a few generations for all the issues to be worked out, battery life to improve from 2 to 3 hours screen on time and more useful features added. Oh, and a design that's less ugly.

Shifting 15 million of these useless things is still pretty impressive.
AnonD-13315, 21 May 2015Who is against apple ? You don't read very well do you ? I am for your information a solid App... moreactually, the ONLY reason they want you to buy it is to throw your money on them :D. they don't give a FK IF and HOW you use it. which is normal...
besides, most of the people wear a watch anyway and I don't think I make a mistake if I say they are useless nowadays. you don't need x gadgets to tell the time, you just need one. and that "one" is NOT the watch anymore usually. so most ppl would wear it simply because they are used to or as accessories to make them look/feel more
AnonD-13315, 21 May 2015I had said that day that the Apple watch like all other smartwatches will fail and fail misera... moreA watch does not come in place of a phone,it comes as an accessory to the phone,it can save you the need to take the phone out of your pocket...
I bike a lot and when you bike taking a phone out of your pocket can be fatal to the phone,if you listen to music you can easily skip a track or change the volume,sending heart beat to another Apple watch owner is silly but controlling it might be important to some people.
I use so called smart watches since 2007 (Sony Ericsson MBW-100,150,liveview,Sony SW1 and this days SW2)
I'm used to it and could not do without,but did not see yet one thing the Apple watch can do that others can't,the design is not my taste and the price is too high.
For 99$ it was a hit.

I am for your information a solid Apple fan, and love their technology and also their products. No harm in any one wanting an iPhone, but I said and read carefully : The watch is apple telling us to use a 38mm or 42mm screen to operate their 4.7 or 5.5 inch beautiful made device. Now you get it ?
