    They are Insanely mad for those prices! That tech will be outdated in a years time. And I will be looking for the new edition every year after that. C’mon? Give me something that will last at least 2 years worth.

    • Petr

      Exactly my thoughts! Too damm expensive for something that will be outdated in 1-2 years. And it’s from best materials, yet no waterproof??! C’mon!!

        This is no different than the phone.

      • Petr

        Yes it is! iPhone is something necessary – you use it for everything. This is something that you are going to use for year or two and then it’s going to be outdated and nearly priceless. I had iPhone 4S for 4 years and then sold it for 1/3 of original price.

      • Chang in Charge

        And what leads you to believe that the Watch won’t also hold its value? Name an Apple product that doesn’t hold its value. Your 4s is also outdated after a year or two, whether or not you keep using it or not. And I’m not knocking continuing to use a device for that long, just saying.

  • Andrea La Rocca

    If i buy a sport edition, could i change the band with the apple watch edition or not?! 😐

  • Ramses Borras

    Will I be able to have the watch by april 24 if I preorder it??

    • Parker Crain

      Depends, but normally, yes! Just make sure you preorder bright and early (usually at midnight Pacific time)

  • The thing is they spent so much time on the macbook and how they put all this time into reinventing it they really showed at the end of the presentation that the apple watch isn’t ready for primetime. They didn’t mention chip speed, storage space, accessory pricing (now on their website). They dropped the ball on how to introduce a new product. Sure they announced a little bit of info months ago but this was their chance to showcase a new direction and why you need one of these devices. All they did for me was make me say yes that’s interesting from what I can see but it didn’t wow me to make me purchase. Even going to the apple store to look at one isn’t going to get me to take money out. To many questions went unanswered and for a company such as this that usually tells the consumer what they want, they didn’t do that at all this time. They simply let the chips fall where they may and even Tim basically ran off the stage as the crowd hushed nearly silently. Only wow there was the pricing, that’s when the whole thing went down the tubes and people realized this product just isn’t ready.

      When the don’t mention certain specs in their presentation, it’s because they don’t want you to focus on it. It’s not them dropping the ball, it’s how they’ve always announced their products.

  • Bam Bam

    For me, the only positive out of today was the 18 hour battery life. Much better than expected. Pricing is a downer but I think I’ll be just fine with the Sport edition. Plus, I think I could easily save up $200 for the steel version if I change my mind between now and the release date.

  • Ethan Humphrey

    This really sucks because I’m flying back out of the U.S. (because I live in Bermuda) on the tenth and wanted to try it on before I bought it. I’ll just have to guess what will fit me and what will look good.

  • GuyBey0ndC00L

    There charging laptop prices for those watches and there not even water proof crazy.

  • yes i will buy

  • Judith Frieh

    Aesthetically unappealing. It’s disappointing that they went with such a terrible design!
