It'll need a few years work! Good start though. I need a strap that isn't going to dwarf my 35mm watch.
plus, I believe they are trying to infiltrate the market for runners. right now, runners don't have much to choose from...they have garmin watches that they use, which none of them really like and they range from $100-$200 to up to $500 each.
the watches are going to be aimed at that market for now.
I remember I lived and died by my garmin GPS in my car, but never bought another one after my iphone 3GS finally became fast enough to use as a GPS while on the road.
Yeah, I suppose I understand it's for rich folks with disposable income who will have no problem putting it away in a drawer when the next new thing comes along. Still don't understand the point in having a "lux" version.
As far as expensive watches as heirlooms I don't see how that is delusional. My brother has a patek phillipe that my grandpa left him. My friend has a 14k gold daytona that his grampa gave him for his 21st (that he bought for himself on his 50th). I know at least 3 other people that have been given watches worth at least 5k, probably closer to 10k, from their dads or grandparents. I don't see what you're getting at? That spending a large amount of money on a watch is stupid no matter what the intension is?
And I understand that, I guess I am just unaware of there being enough of those people to warrant making the gold version of the apple watch. I would love to see sales numbers of that style a year from now just for my own curiosity.
Don't they have a concierge service and stuff like that as added benefits as well?
It's not just an Android phone in a shiny case.
