    This is way too expensive. Definitely did not expect this price range for this version.

    Ambitious for a device that is bound to have a rapid life cycle compared to traditional watches.

    Both in terms of features, but also in terms of things like this:

    "Sorry, this version of AppleWatch OS is not compatible with your version of iOS on your iPhone".

    I can see it now.

    "...while the larger 42mm model will cost between $599 to $1099." This is incorrect the 42mm starts at $499


    No you are incorrect. The 42mm starts at $599 for the stainless steel.

    Apple must be very confident to have established these price tiers. I wasn't expecting such a huge markup based on band selection alone.

    I'm struggling with these prices. While I can afford it, it will be really hard to justify dropping $600-$1100 for the model I'd want when such a product likely evolves at a very rapid pace and this version will likely soon be very obsolete. I'm really going to have to think about this one.

    Option 4, don't reward them for this strategy.



    Of course it will sell like crazy anyways.
    We're talking about Apple. They can leverage the emotions people have for them unlike most other companies.

    Consider the Kardashians and other celebs who will be getting them for free to "be seen" with them.
    THEN, remember that you are subsidizing those watches.
