I believe, if my translation is correct, the OP believes Apple has made some big errors in the watch launch and is asking if we expect the same thing to occur when watch 2 launches.

I suppose most people are American. Never mind. And they haven't really made some big errors, but it's definitely not a familiar launch.

I understand what shambles means, my question was why you're referring to it that way? It's out of context, and a pretty drastic judgement for something that hasn't even hit launch day yet.

Because I'm an idiot who should of known making such an assumption that apple has made errors would invoke the wrath of the community.

I have no idea what's going on, I am just wondering if you think it will be a similar launch for Apple Watch 2. Or do you think they would of sorted out this prob...um...launch?

I think you will have learned your lesson on this launch and will be up at 3AM sharp with the app loaded on your mobile device ready to pre-buy on time. No more shambles for you!

I still don't get this thread. OP is hurt feelings about something, but not sure what that something is...

No hurt feelings, or should there be? Just a discussion. Do you think it will be a smoother launch next year or is this product so different that it might take a number of tries for Apple to get familiar with it?

I know there was a supplie issue regressing the white iPhones 4 that I think were ironed out by the time the 4s came out so im hoping Apple Watch 2 will be a much smoother and easier launch :)

what will be in the next one???

Oh, I thought this was a thread re what we thought will be included in apple watch 2.

If it were, I think the next watch will include...1) better battery life (duh) and 2) a camera to scan things with (if not to take photos).

I've been around the business long enough to know not to buy ver 1.0 of anything.

I'm looking forward to Apple Watch 2 and am planning to buy then.

By the second version Apple should have a much better sense of what band combinations sell in what numbers. Sure, there will likely be constrained demand at launch, but it shouldn't be as bad as this launch. My guess is that improvements will focus primarily on battery life. I'd be surprised if it launches before next January or February, but eventually I see this on the same update cadence as the iPhone.

Round 2 is always better than the first. I expect similar changes to the watch compared to previous gen 1 to gen 2 releases. They change a lot over their first year in the public. They get public opinions and can work with that to create something everyone wants and is looking for. The watch is great, but there is definitely room for improvement that Apple will capitalize on for the watch 2

I think the demand has cooled and even when the AW2 arrives it will be far from the first launch.

Do not worry about you being an idiot!:)

I got up at 3am. My app was loaded. I hit buy no later than 3:07. Did I get one on launch day? No, I did not.

So obviously the OP wants to know if it'll be that way for watch 2. The answer? Who knows.
