"It is staggering to think that people are rushing out to order a watch that will be obsolete in a year-two at most ... "
Rarely people keep their iPhones for more than two years, in average. One of the reasons is that after a while they don't support the lastest iOS updates, or newest apps, which is logical. I really don't see why it should be different with the Apple Watch, which is a complement of the iPhone at the end of the day.
Also, a lot of people sell their phones after little more than a year, or two years to buy a new one. By doing that, they get part of their investment back which they use to buy the next iPhone. It will be exactly the same with the Apple Watch. All devices become obsolete after a while and you really need to replace them.
