    I've realized that with such a big hype, and the limited number of watches, that I could just sell my pre-order or the watch right when I get it. The same thing happened when the Xbox 1 came out. Anyone thinking of doing this or seeing people spending more money since they can't get it?

    This is a troll. The OP is trying to get outrage from a mass number of people. Don't respond and he won't succeed.

    Either that or he doesn't realize what he's doing is wrong. If that's the case, this is wrong and immoral OP.

    People like you are why Apple has to limit selling the watch in mass quantities.

    Well what gave me the idea was my skepticism of it being worth the cost :(
    If it ends up not being worth it I'll just return it.....orrrr sell it for some profit.

    Or just not buy it at all if you aren't going to keep it?

    These are the same type of people who buy all the tickets they can for an event the moment it's available, then price gouge them to where it becomes unaffordable or unreasonable to those who really want to attend.

    These are the ones I don't do business with.

    Please don't. I really want my watch to be reserved tonight and I hope you are not doing this.

    People really want these devices, find another business

    people on this forum love capitalism until it doesn't work in their favor. OP if you wanna do it, do it. It's the way the world works. Economics 101.

    It's not wrong or immoral IMO. It's not the same as scalping tickets since the Apple Watch inventory will be replenished eventually.

    If someone on the street offered $200 over purchase for your Watch on the spot, you'd probably sell it.

    Wait, is there a limit for pre-orders?

    I was planning on ordering 3 watches tonight. Brother, wife, and me.

    Didn't someone say the Watch is locked to your iCloud account before activation which means you have to open the box first?

    I made that up as a joke to dissuade another poster from selling their pre-order. Apparently it was convincing enough that some people are quoting it back. It is patently false.

    Since when is something being "not new in society" an excuse to keep doing it.

    .....murder isn't new

    Honestly, what hype? Nobody in my circle of friends or my husband's friends, employees or colleagues is all that interested. We are talking about people aged 17-60's with money, iPhones, interests in technology, fashion and fitness all living in a an affluent upscale major metropolitan area. Just his sister wanted one when told about it. That's been it so far. I've not gotten together recently to talk with my friends about it. But nobody has mentioned it to me in texts, yet.

    My husband came home and told me one of his business contacts at an Apple Store is thrilled he's planning to preorder it and represent for it or be an ambassador or some rigmarole like that and didn't make it sound like it was going to be a nightmare getting one on preorder day. Seriously they were actually calling my husband repeatedly over the past month to gauge his interest because my husband is heavily networked. That's such a different tune the same contact sang about the IPhone 6plus that was insanely in demand and hard to get.

    The only hype I have heard seems to come from Angela Ahrendts trying to make it sound like there is going to be Tickle Me Elmo levels of fighting over it. Maybe she speaks the truth. Maybe she's just earning those millions Apple is paying her.
