Re: Excited
Gary, that is a very funny comment. Thanks for sharing it! I saw one in public for the first time on someone's wrist, and I can tell you, aesthetically, it wasn't very impressive --- not like a luxury/jewelry high-end watch is. It reminded me of an old timex digital watch my grandfather had --- maybe from the 70s?

Re: Excited
So much noise about so little that costs so much. The only health app I need is the artery on my wrist that I use measure my heart rate when I use the cardio machine in the gym. Of course, this could be just sour grapes, because I've grown so farsighted in my old age that I can barely read the time on my Timex without my glasses.

Re: Excited
well I am not an Apple fan and I strongly support your view. I think Apple is more of a 'cool' symbol now for manh.

Re: Excited
[email protected], what blows my mind about all of this over-excitement is that the use case for the watch hasn't really been made. Why does someone need this if they already have an iPhone 6, besides the bio-monitoring stuff?

I sense too much excitement among the ones who ordered the watch. People may have stayed up all night to be among the first to order the company's latest wonder gadget. Hearing the news that Apple has started to deliver, makes the user much more impatient.
