If one bought the link bracelet $400+ they might be a little put off of the Apple Watch version x doesn't let them use it.Like do you foresee apple switching up connector methods and needing to sell adapters for old bands and all that in later generations of the watch?
I haven't forgotten about the port, and I still think it's a stupid idea unless "smart bands" can be swapped around depending on the orientation of the watch.Don't forget about the diagnostic port...that will be crucial when the smartbands come out. Apple (i think) future-proofed the 1st gen for future accessories.
Not at all comparable.It's bound to happen...just like the 30pin port to the Lightning connector.
This exactly. Also given that there's a certain aesthetic to having a watch with a heft and size to it.If you think the AW would get thin enough to warrant a change to the connector, you have to realize it would need to become less than half the thickness it is now before this connector won't fit. I don't know about you, but I'm not expecting a five-millimeters-thin sandwich of cover glass, display, touch digitizer, battery, system chip, LED sensor pack, induction coil, and back glass.
