People expect a new Desktop/Laptop computer to last them 5-8 years before they need to upgrade (assuming hardware doesn't fail). The expectation from a Tablet is 3-5 years or longer depending what you use it for. (I still have an iPad 2) Most consumers (at least in the US) get a new smartphone every 2 years as their contracts expire. Is anyone else curious what direction Apple will take with the Apple Watch? Are they expecting consumers to spend $400+ every year or 2 years for the "new" Apple watch or will they hold back "new" features and make the upgrade cycle longer. I can understand buying an Omega watch for $3250.00 and handing it down to your children in 30 years but is the Gold edition Apple watch just going to be a $5000.00 paper weight in a few years? If Apple is going to push an aggressive upgrade cycle for the Apple watch I'll be buying nothing but the sport edition every 2-3 years. thoughts?
