As you say, "says you.."
AW is very tacky and garish - but that's not it's main problem. It simply is lacking a purpose and something to make people buy it.

Each to their own, :D
Agreed. In general watches were not fundamentally broken or in need of a revamp, the way phones were back in the day of ugly Treo's and Blackberries.

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.

You absolutely nailed it.
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)

Good Luck with all that. I have a 6s Plus and I can leave the phone at home and run with the watch and Bluetooth headphones.

I don't need a phone tethered to myself all the time. But with Apple Watch I don't need iPhone for music.

Considering Apple Watch outsold the collective android wear stable there are no worries.
That still doesn't dismiss the fact that smartwatches are very niche and an utter failure in general. All that functionality can be accessed on your phone so why would you want to pay an extra half of the price of the phone to get a watch that needs the phone to function? If the Moto 360 was junk, we can infer smartwatches are conclusively ahead of their time.

I saw a women in the mall with one yesterday - just looked ridiculous.
I've seen a few around, but without a purpose or unique selling point, its just the fanboys with them

Nope. Just trying to give you a little perspective. I'm sure there's plenty of things you've done and accomplished that you can feel proud about - many of us do. But to feel proud of a mass produced consumer product that you went to the mall and bought, that's just silly.
What's silly is your lack of reading comprehension and making ignorant comments online. I never said or even implied I was proud. Getting compliments shows that others think Apple Watch is beautiful too, contrary to the comment the poster made about it being ugly.

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.

The sales numbers speak for themselves. The fact that you don't see many people with Apple Watch or smart watches in general is due to the fact that they offer very little utility that a smartphone already offers. I don't get the fashion argument either. Generally hi end fashion is something that you don't want to be mass produced. It's a cool toy/gadget but kinda like a lava lamp, doesn't do much. Unless you're too busy to look who's calling. Feel like it's just a notification bar on your wrist.
