Re: Nice watch but overpriced
I have a friend who has a number of Android watches. He says all of them are better than the Apple Watch. They might be functionally because they don't go for advanced functionality the way the APple watch does. The Apple watch promises a lot and really does not deliver. I'm noticing glances that suddenly vanish, third party apps that do not update all the time and boring watch faces. BUt the resolution is great, you can tell the watch is high quality and there is hope that subsequent versions will be better. Right now this is truly a 1.0 tech device and i will replace it once a better product comes out. Still though the quality is obvious over the Android watches my friend has. Nobody seems to really have it right yet.

Re: Nice watch but overpriced
I have noticed that tech enthusiast have jump to the opportunity of getting smartwatches. I do not think that such watches have the wow factor that the Iphone had when it was released.  I have noticed that at my office only two people got a smart watch, they were in their 20s.  They are very nice to have and it does have some nice features.  Besides that, I agree that it is a very nice toy.  Has anyone here gotten other type of smarthwatches that they believe is better than the iwatch?

Nice watch but overpriced
I got the watch back in June. It is really a nice watch, very well made with quality materials. However it is overpriced and still buggy. Even after the updated operating system came on line, third party apps are still dodgy with information updates. Meanwhile the Apple apps work perfectly. I'm not sure why this is but it is a problem that is quite disconcerting. If the third party apps ever function as well as the Apple ones, then it will be worth the money. Right now it is more of a toy than a truly useful tool.
