Apple Watch

Who has seen one? Anyone getting one or seriously thinking about it? An engineer of mine has had an android watch for a while. It is annoying as fvck when talking to him and it is blinking and doing all sorts of **** as he's getting alerts of all sorts.

While neat, I don't see a need to have one yet. I also feel like as new apple products come out the market is flooded with them and the early adopters look douchey.

it's a multi-hundred (sometimes thoasand) dollar phoen accessory that makes you look like Dick Tracy. The watch doesn't do much of anything if you don't have an iphone. I don't see the point.

Might get a ~3rd gen one. Early adopting something like this is Seems pretty dumb that your phone needs to be nearby in order to maximize its functionality.

Only way I would get one is for when I ride my motorcycles. It would be nice if i had an incoming call or text message. But it's not like I would pull over for a text or call anyways so yea, screw that.

I'll stick to watches powered by hairsprings. I've always thought people wearing these watches looked like tools.

I see no point to this, and will probably never adopt such a stupid trend.

i've dropped two iphones right in the toilet pulling my phone out to check a txt message. I'm hoping the apple watch can stop this embarrassing trend.
