Yes, fitness trackers are all the rage but what Apple came up with still seems like a solution for a problem no one had. Watches have sentimental value. I still wear a 20 year old Seiko because I like the style and it was a gift from my parents. People don't get sentimental about technology the same way.
Remember when then RIM came out with the Playbook tablet? Everyone crapped on it because you couldn't even do email if it wasn't in the same room as your Blackberry. But now it's okay if the Watch is crippled in the same way. No thanks.
I think the Watch is a vanity project for Jony Ive who has stated that he wanted to do a luxury product and Tim Cook who doeant know any better and is under great pressure to find the Next Big Thing.
The price of the watch needs to drop and battery life needs to be more than a day or two for this thing to rally take off. That's going to take awhile.
I don't consider the Apple Watch a "watch", as it were. It's more like a high-end sports band with its short lifespan.
(It's also pretty ugly with it's giant curved rectangle block look. When I had one I found it a little big)
I've seen a few around, but without a purpose or unique selling point, its just the fanboys with them
And even if I were a proud owner of a mass produced product, how is that in any way silly? What, in your mind, is worthy of something that someone can be proud of?
If someone works hard and purchases a mass produced car (whether it's a Kia or a Porsche), they're not entitled to feel proud? What about new parents? Are they not entitled to feel proud because making babies is so easy even teens and people in 3rd world countries can do it?
I think the person who needs perspective is you. The fact that you think you're somehow smart enough, righteous enough and wise enough to judge others on what they should or shouldn't be proud of is extremely warped.
