Default Apple Watch Anyone?

Surprised not a subject of discussion.

Let's draw a T bar.
On the one side, FanBoys. On the other, Haters.

Me? First and foremost, a watch freak.
Second, a self confessed FanBoy.
Third, toys, period.

That said, here is mine, SS 42mm version.

Is it a must have? Nope.
Does one need it? Nope.
Do I regret buying it? Nope.
It's a fun gadget that if you can piss money away, go for it. It's a conversation piece to say the least. Have used it as Apple pay in a few places and chuckled all the way out of the store. Cracked up first time I set navigation on phone and was showing on watch and my wrist was tapped each time I needed to make a turn. Controlling my patio Bluetooth stereo from my watch is also cool. Nice to leave phone in one place in house and be anywhere to answer phone or texts.

Again, a toy that was lucky to get on first day, on 24th and enjoy as a birthday present to me, from me, with many more regards from me.

I'm a fanboy. I'm always in line for the flag ship phones since they started. I'll probably get one of these at some point as I love watches as well. Hell I even have one of the old iPods in a watch band (some sort of nano i think). But I will say I wasn't uberly excited for this out of the gate. I have a problem with cracking watch faces already

As I like to buy American, I avoid all Apple products.


What's that? Apple IS American? Has anybody told them that?

Nice.
Funny, I have an Oyster Perpetual and a new Breitling Navitimer but plenty of room still for others.
Submariner in blue like yours may be next one for me or Daytona.

I admit it I usually go first gen on everything, but this is one time I'm going to wait it out, my brother got his already and loves it.

As you said is it a must have, blah blah blah, nope to them all, yet then again it's still pretty cool and seeing as how I don't have a full sleeve tat down to my wrist .. it will work for me when I do get one

What's your digital watch face of choice?

Not to start an argument or flame-war, but based on your logic, you need to just stop buying stuff. Nearly everything these days has parts or components made outside the USA.

Supporting the global economy is also a good thing. Yes, there are bad governments -- mostly it's a matter of degree.

Just my ...

Last quarter Apple sold more new iPhones in China than in the US . . . and will pony up about the same amount in corporate taxes here in dollars as they shall here in yuan.

I've been an Apple Fanboy for about 10 years now. I'll pass on this one. Actually, I was really into watches at one point, but quit wearing them when cell phones became ubiquitous. Now I have zero interest other than athletic watches.

You are not alone it seems. Have read many following that route of not needing a wrist watch any more.
For me, I feel lost/naked without a watch on my wrist. At 56, way too many years of wearing one.

Had a hard time deciding between new Apple Watch and new Breitling.
This was a pretty good compromise.

Default Re: Apple Watch Anyone?

Oddly, I've had zero interest.
I used to wear a watch all the time. Then I got a phone and no longer needed a watch.
If I could ditch the phone and just wear the watch, that'd be different.
That's not far down the road, I'm sure.

My problem with Apple is not with where they make their products, but rather how they hide their obscenely vast profits. Over the past ten years the total global . . . TOTAL GLOBAL FOR TEN YEARS!! . . . amount of corporate taxes on their hundreds of billions of profits has been in the neighborhood of 100 million bucks. Look at it this way: When you buy one of their products, the sales tax you pay is 100 times or more greater than the tax they will pay on their profit . . . which is considerable, what with their gross margin of 35%. Yes, 1 out of every 3 bucks you pony up for your Apple goes into their pockets, and stays there.

Do a little research, and be shocked at their greed. Even when dead, Steve still jobs you.
