I find those straps naff.

Taste is a funny thing. Steve Jobs had it. Microsoft don't. Neither does Tim Cook.

If Apple brought out a hybrid mechanical round watch with a digital overlay, I might be interested.


Taste is also subjective.

With luxury watches, you pay for exclusivity. But exclusivity is measured with craftsmanship -- the movement, the finish, the dial, etc.

What's exclusive about this watch? The band? It's the same watch face with a slightly different digital display. The components are the same and I suspect production cost is as well.

There's certainly a price premium, I just don't see the exclusivity that price premium is supposed to represent.

So this is what qualifies as "innovation" under the "leadership" of Tim Cook...

Pathetic.

This whole watch thing makes less and less sense as an Apple product with every passing day. Tim Cook's tenure continues to make Apple's lineup less and less appealing.

I don't think I've ever seen Apple's Macbook Pro line so long in the tooth. The obsession with the watch is driving every other product line into the ground. Bicker with me all you want, I won't hear it. Ridiculous.

Apple used to inspire minds, people would buy their products to use them as their primary tools. Now all we've got is these offerings like the watch, and the only people buying it want to look "cool", where the product itself is mostly useless.

Where have all my top of the line tools gone?
Overpriced, over-polished, specialized metal pieces with sapphire screens. Mindless materialism.

Prove me wrong, and do it soon, Tim.

Tim Cook's Apple Watch took over 50% of the smartwatch market in 2015, with Pebble coming in 2nd at 8%. To the smartwatch market, it looks like most people like the Apple Watch.

These posts need to slow down. The smartwatch market is very new and the value prop isn't fully developed yet. Apple designed a nice watch that is selling very well in this new market segment. If Apple can integrate a must-have component (for myself, it would be health monitoring), then I'm sure this market will grow exponentially with Apple taking most of the share (iPhone). If the Apple Watch struggles to find a mass-need purpose, it'll sell well in a smaller market (iPad).

the thing is, the iphone had a compelling reason for existence. The value prop was there from the get go... internet in your pocket...a wide screen ipod...and a revolutionary mobile phone..remember?
similarly, the ipad was a cheap way for people to do basic computing (facebook, basic word processing and internet browsing)...that people were using netbooks to fulfill.

the Apple watch... 10 months after release still doesn't really have a solid value prop.. I've been using it since launch day and I like it...but I find myself not missing it if I don't wear it. Not in the same way that I miss my iPhone or iPad if I don't have them for a few days/weeks.. Because it doesn't really have a compelling feature.

Apple watch Hermes.. Outdated electronics made in China by a bunch of exploited children, poor bastards. The leather made by a bunch of artsy fartsy wankers sat in Paris telling themselves how important they are. PRICKS


Don't beat about the bush say what you really mean. Seriously, couldn't agree more. Daft frills like this will mark the wearer and Apple as a lost cause.
