DeDeTe, 21 Oct 2014Apple has made the best phone in the iPhone 6+.
Specs are for the dumb but the iPhone 6 is ... moreI don't know if you are being facetious, or what
Apple are only bringing out this watch just to make money.
The same thing with the "specification absent" iPad Mini which was had the LEAST specs and cost the MOST of all the tablets in its category
In case you forgot it was so devoid of specs it was marketed with the iPad (only the specs on the iPad mini advertised) so people logically assumed it has all specs of the IPad
The upgrade if you can call it that for the iPad mini 3 just adds Apple Pay ?
Expect limitations in which iPhone can/will support the watch which won't extend to the iPhone4S and only a days use before it need recharging
Here is the 2012 phone which the 2014 iPhone6 models itself http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=4910&idPhone2=6378
Exact Same phone just a larger display plus Apple pay
Give it 3 years and there will articles like this again: "Smartwatch sales are down, no one is replacing them".
Like tablets, sales of smartwatches will crash for everyone. I still don't see this market being profitable for long period of time.

Specs are for the dumb but the iPhone 6 is not a slouch. It is a pleasure to use and I am happy to be using it as my daily phone, after two years of using Android flagships.
This is not to disparage Android OS, which is great, but the iPhone 6+ is really the best package money can buy right now, in my opinion.
Id rather have a pebble, an actual pebble. As in small stone. in my shoe.

So our kids and the generations that are coming will no longer appreciate a 100000$ watch and they will be raise with gadgets. Even luxury watches must adapt somehow because 10 years from now the sales will be a lot lower and 15 years from now even worst.
It's all about keeping the company

Rolex is not even very luxurious anyway. People pay £10000 hermes bag not because it has lots of functions lol

Maybe we buy REAL performance and usability instead bigger paper numbers ;) just a hint..
In Arabic there is a saying: the income of the dumb comes from the crazy. Exactly how Apple gets its money. Why on earth would I buy a phone that has a higher price with lower specs? Supposedly they teach economics in this country!!!!
OMG, 21 Oct 2014Rolex watch is still better...Hey you, use your brain. We are talking about smartwatches and you are talking about rolex. You're totally insane.
Gibby, 21 Oct 2014Left-handed people lament.
Proof that there's still a large contingency that will buy anythin... moreNope, this is designed for right and left handed, you can google it. From setup you can change it.
"Now, Slashgear has new information on how the device will work for left-handed individuals. According to Apple, users will be able to choose what way the watch's interface orients upon starting up the device for the first time. The bands for the Apple Watch are also swappable, enabling users to ensure the the device is not facing the opposite direction. However, left-handed users will still be required to adapt to the Digital Crown input on the Apple Watch, which is on the bottom left side when the device is worn on the correct wrist."
By the way, interesting words about product which you have never seen in real life or used ;)
Left-handed people lament.
Proof that there's still a large contingency that will buy anything with an 'i' in front of its name - regardless of it's appearance, real value or usefulness.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2014Another study paid for by Apple. It's rather thick, ugly and using the dial as input is rathe... moreEach to their own, I guess. I think the digital crown is admittedly a bit clunky but an interesting solution to the fact watch sized screens are really too small to use as a convenient touch screen.
I still maintain the Apple Watch isn't the kind I'd ever wear, though. I prefer round faced watches.
In the past, before mobile phones , a luxury watch was an need of time and being, a high end crafted accesoriy and a fashion
Since the mobile phones..the need for time and being was lost, and we are left with luxury materials hand maded and fashion accessory , after 10 years we will be left of just an handed made and a history art for collection

Now even in the cars the entire board is digital on the mercedes and now even in a passat.
Digital is the future for the next 50 years
