    No, why would I want one? Please someone tell me what is so special with these monstrosities and how do they bring anything productive to our lives?

    Just another device for people to become even more insular and not look where they are walking!

    Yes, I don't see the appeal, but I guess one day I may be converted!

    Just think of all the things you can do from your watch.

    I agree

    With a phone in every pocket or bag that will give you more ability, on a larger screen, than a watch could - I really can't see what the USP is

    Not sure if all the pre order numbers are just Apple sales hype but can't see this being around and still sought after in 3 years

    Like what? It doesn't seem that you can actually do that much with it, unless you've got it linked to a phone in your pocket.

    A watch that runs out of battery in less than a day seems like it is just for posers. No doubt they'll sell them by the barrow load but I just think its an awful product. And this is coming from someone who has pretty much all of the apple stuff currently.

    I only wanted to hear what people thought and if they are going to buy one or not, it seems its just a thread to let steam off :eek:

    1: For me I will be able to see my cameras remotely,
    2: boil my kettle
    3: open garage doors
    4: Operate all my tvs in house and lighting.

    Could really go on all night,

    But why watch rather than phone that almost has on them as much as they'd have a watch?

    Seems like your duplicating the same thing on a smaller screen, less capability.

    Personally I don't get it

    Same for me - I've been an Apple addict since I bought my Apple LC475 twenty years ago to my latest Macbook Pro, but I still don't see the appeal.
