I was / am skeptical…BUT I also realize that the public might think this is the best thing since sliced Bread !! It all has to do with perception…
I totally expected stellar sales with iPods and iPhones… those were greatly needed and I could plainly see a use. My skepticism comes from if you already have and carry an iPhone - WTF does the iWatch do ? (OK - measures cardiac, and exercise data - BFD !) Do I really need this info? Also it's small - advantage you don't lug a phone around… BUT how do I do things on that watch I can do in an iPhone - like text, email ? my big fat fingers don't work !
Google maps… Weatherbug maps.. etc… WHY would I want to carry both ? Much is duplication ! How many people carry an iPod and an iPhone? I'd guess damm few! why ? Duplication !
If it was $50 I might consider, but $400… nope !!
THAT said _ know I'm not the general public nor part of the younger culture… SO maybe it's a hot fashion / status deal. I accept that and am very happy for Apple !! Way to go !! Kudos- another feather in your cap !!
