I've got a pledge in for a pebble time. I can't see that changing with the apple announcement.
I'm getting the sport model to replace my Suunto Ambit 3 as a daily user, battery time is not an issue since an update should get it to go longer later on. I had a Motorolla MOTOACTV and same thing first few months had to recharge every night then after an updat it lasted 4-5 days before it needed a recharge. I'll still keep my Ambit for hikes but the Apple will be my daily wear.
It's certainly interesting technology and I am an Apple fan boy for computing, mobile, and networking, but 14-18 hours is simply not a long enough battery life for me. I'll wait for Gen 2
Not impressed with the battery life at all. I like the capability of it, the heart rate monitoring ability etc but eh. Don't think I can justify it for the price.

fixed it hahaha
In my mind if I were to spend over $300 on a watch, or heaven forbids $10,000 plus, that is going to be the watch I would wear until the day I die...and then it gets passed down to my kids.
This is an electronic device that will be out of date within 2 years, not a watch.
If I was going to spend £1000+ on a watch I'd want it to have a Swiss movement not a circuit board.
If I was going to spend 10,000 dolars on a watch, I.... I.... I wouldnt spend this much money on a watch
seriously, 10,000 dolars are = 30,000 reais. thats a car man!!!
The Huawai smart watch looks a whole lot nicer than the apple version.
I don't get it. Won't be buying this or any other smart watch. My Seiko has been on my wrist for the last 5+ years and is still on the original battery. Not worth the price, not worth the features, just plain silly.
And in six months or less version 1.1 then 1.2, then 2.0 etc, etc, normal Apple marketing. Fan boys will be dropping like flies trying to keep up.
oh god... i love the internet
I'm thinking about getting the 42mm Sport model with the black band for $579 Australian, then swapping that band out with a third party steel band in the near future. I'm in IT and can't wait to tinker around with a new gadget. I have to say I was pretty miffed about the pricing but hey it's a first generation apple product.
I'm sure I'll enjoy playing with the apple watch for 5 minutes the next time I'm in an apple store, but seriously these are just not for me. I'm not interested in something that will be obsolete so quickly, that's a gen 1 product, and more importantly to me something that will I think be quite bothersome on the wrist. Having a backlit screen flashing away with every notification could be quite distracting in certain situations.
Jaquet Droz Charming Bird Watch..... $500,000. Makes even the upper tier Apple watch seem cheap.
By comparison the Zenith Academy Christopohe Colomb is a bargain at $185,000-$200,000.
Money =/= sense
I LOVE watches, Tech, & am an Apple fan girl. I like the Apple Watch, and would like to get one, at some point.
I have never heard of this company.
But they put a bird that chirps in a watch.
I almost cried.
I can die happy.
Same goes for the first models of new car designs. But, beware the second models as cost cutting usually winds up in cost cutting. Since most car models last 4-5 years and typically go through mid-cycle improvements, the optimum time to buy is usually in year 3 of the model launch as long as there are no major issues with the model in the industry already.
