    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.
