Re: "Style is the word
I would tend to think that a later generation of the Apple Watch will work independently of an iPhone.

Of course, I would have tended to think that of the first incarnation......

Re: Delayed Differentiationt
@Angelfuego: I'm with you.  The only reason I have a newer model phone is because I dropped my iPhone 3GS three stories.  If not for that, I'd probably still be using it.

Re: Delayed Differentiation
Probably not. At least, not now (and not just because my aging iPhone 4 wouldn't be compatible). I think it's impressive and has a lot of potential, but so far Apple hasn't demonstrated a purpose for Watch that isn't already on my iPhone. It's focusing a lot on fitness, but Apple Watch doesn't do anything my Garmin doesn't already do. I'd also like to see a model that doesn't require a nearby iPhone at all times; that might be a game-changer.

Re: Delayed Differentiation
That reminds me... I have an attorney friend who pre-ordered one.  I should ask her what she thinks of it.

Re: Delayed Differentiation
To be clear, that "3S" reference was a joke about Apple's product-naming schemes.  ;)

Re: Comfort/wearability
@Sachin: Apple has never been a company for customization.  It's always been sit down, shut up, and trust us that this is the best design (as one might expect from a company founded by Steve Jobs).

Maybe that's a good thing in many cases, but it does alienate some potential customers, to be sure.

Re: Delayed Differentiation
@SachinEE: I would be interested in judging the quality of the product and its software first-hand before judging it on those bases.

...except for the fact that I'm really not interested in wearing a watch in general.  Apple has to convince me to go back to wearing something on my wrist almost every day before the company can convince me to select its product for that purpose/honor.

Re: "Style is the word
@KarlH: Very true -- but the uber-practical people like us have never been among Apple's target demographic.

You can always wait for the price to come down around the time the Apple Watch 3S comes out.  ;)

Re: Delayed Differentiation
And, of course, men generally like to have bigger watches, bigger cars, bigger everything.  Because we're like that.
