    The makers of Swatch are Swatch. The Swatch Group is huge and owns a ton of brands. Breguet, Omega, and Hamilton to name a few.

    This would give a new meaning to "Gentleman, synchronize Swatches!"

    I was out with 4 co-workers grabbing lunch, and somebody mentioned the watch ... and then we realized that everybody had already picked out which one they want.

    it's inevitable.

    It's a small annoyance, but I hate taking my phone out of my pocket and unlocking it every time someone texts me. Happens enough that a way to read and respond quickly from my wrist might be awesome.

    It'd be nice too if I could leave my phone in my bag/coat when I get to the office and rely on the watch for quick tasks.

    Can't imagine what it's like trying to type on the tiny watch screen. And I've noticed with the 6 that the Touch ID is much improved. Pretty much instant unlocks.

    I'd stick to iPhone for involved messages. But for a quick reply to let someone know I saw their joke or to let someone know I've arrived somewhere, Watch's emojis and voice dictation and taps could work nicely.

    Helps I guess that I have superficial conversations that can be handled with emojis.

    A couple of months ago I was anxious for the Apple watch to become available but now love my Fitbit Surge too much to part with it.

    Apple can't imagine it either. That's why the watch doesn't have a keyboard.

    We can no longer be e-brahs if you don't purchase an Apple Watch Edition.

    Not a fan of yellow or rose gold; can't believe they didn't include a white gold option. Also having trouble believing an Apple product is worth 10k. :confused:

    Who said it was "worth" 10K? That's just the price!
