So I got a free Apple Watch 42mm Sport at work. I can't believe how "unapple" this watch is. I've admittedly been anti Apple watch, but this confirms it. Clunky, flimsy and other than a step counter it's pointless...

I'll keep it as a novelty, but if I would have paid $400 for it I would be pretty bent.

The watch isn't for everyone. But as you'll read here, a majority of us are pretty happy with the watch. :)

A new threat rather then join several threads already talking about this.
So you don't like it. It's not to everyone's taste. In what way do you mean un-Apple like in comparison to Apple TV, MacBooks, iPhones, iPads Apple ear buds, Apple charger cables etc
Maybe as a novelty, you could show it off at parties and have women swoon over your novelty!!!
Jeez there are some moaners around.

It is not for everyone, certainly not you. Give it to someone who appreciates it for what it is.

I think the developers haven't quite figured out how to best use it yet. I think os2 will be a step in the right direction. Until then, it's still a neat gadget.

Originally I bought the SS $700 version and my thoughts were pretty much the same as yours. Six hours later I sold the watch for a $300 profit. I now have the $400 watch that ended costing me only $100.

The watch is definitely worth $100.

Give yourself a few days or week get knowing your apple watch. if you are activity person you will find it useful.

I'll take it off your hand so you don't feel disappointed anymore.

I am very satisfied with my Apple Watch. There's room for significant improvement with the third-party apps but otherwise I really like my watch a great deal.

I'm puzzled. How can you be disappointed when something turns out to be exactly what you expected?
I think it's kind of like, I have a friend who is always late. When I'm meeting him somewhere, I expect him to be late. Yet, I feel disappointed when he doesn't show up on time, even though that was exactly what I was expecting.

Perhaps so, but then the issue is with your unrealistic expectations, not your friend, who's behaviour is consistent.

You can say you have no point for it, but even watch people say it's incredibly well built. What exactly is "flimsy" to you?

No, I don't have unrealistic expectations, I expect him to be late. But the result is still disappointing. I mean, disappointment is an emotion. You can feel disappointed by a result even if that is what you are expecting.

And conversely, if my friend does show up on time, I'm happy. I wouldn't say I was disappointed that he showed up on my time, even though that was not what I was expecting.

In other words, being disappointed isn't really a function of what you are expecting. It's a function of whether the end result was positive or negative for you.

I really struggle with the point of posts like this.

I'll take your word for it - that's not a function I suffer in the same way at all.

Well, this is fascinating.

You've never had a thing where you knew it will turn out one way, even though you wanted it to turn out the other way?

I actually quite like mine, even though I have no use for it really. I don't need to keep up to date on emails or messages and don't need to make calls whilst at work, it does look good though. (Lets have in built GPS though next time.)

Here's what I think. This was all about sharing how he got a free Apple Watch. Otherwise, he could have just posted to the eight million other whiny threads.

Wow, you are so cool with your free watch! :rolleyes:
Exactly the opposite. In words that you would probably use. What you jelly. Or some other kid lingo.

Why would it make any diffence. Why would anyone care if I got it free or not!?!? The reason I posted seperate was becuase I never wanted an apple watch. But since I was given one I wanted to like it. However it's terrible and if I had bought it I would have been disappointed. I'm glad you like keeping track of you steps and stuff cool. I don't need to track my steps.

And I'm a watch person and this is not quality.

Then please shut it and give it away. Because this is a pointless thread. Completely pointless.
