    Since I am so eagerly awaiting the arrival of my own watch, I've taken up the habit of staring at everyone's wrists as I walk by them, in the gym and wherever. I haven't seen a single apple watch yet... I suppose that is not too unexpected, but I was curious: have you guys spotted any of these in the wild?

    I was in the Apple Store twice yesterday at a local mall and both times I walked out, people were staring at my wrist. This was people walking by the store. It felt weird as I don't like to draw attention. The good thing is, no one else has said anything since then.

    I haven't seen an Apple Watch, but I have been more attentive...and noticed many other smart watches.

    I had an event to photograph today at a local area mall, and twice someone noticed my watch and commented on it. Once by a local sheriff who asked "did that really cost $10,000?" about my sport model. I had to laugh a little bit.

    I think it may be a while before I see any on Kauai. My UPS guy did NOT have any others to deliver yesterday. (at least not SS). BTW: The box is HEAVY. WOW.

    Had the same experience, anywhere form $1,000-$17,000 are the guesses as to how much I paid for my Watch Sport.

    Just now in local (fancy) grocery store. White sports band model. The owner loves it.

    My first "in the wild" sighting was at the Padres game last night. Sport with White SB. Still need to make my way to the Apple Store for a try-on/play with display models. June for my orders.

    Went into my local Apple Store for a charger and the manager wanted to see it... And have his picture taken with me... Also the staff all clapped their hands...

    It felt weird.

    I had a similar experience as BigMovieGeek today when i went into my local store to purchase applecare, they told i me i would need to bring it in when i receive it so they could inspect it... thats when i gently pulled my sleeve up :D:cool: had a few employees asking me about it and telling me how jealous they were(One of them had a pebble with a still of the app screen on the watch to tide him over till his gets delivered, lol!).

    I also got asked if i would like to try one on from another employee, when checking out the other straps at the glass tables... guess what happened next :D

    Did they have chargers? I want to pick up another and perhaps add Apple Care to mine.

    Went to see Avengers today with my Apple Watch on. Yes, this was an issue. I had to turn it off because it would keep flashing on and off as I moved my arm.

    Atypical usage though so it's not a flaw of the device.

    It is indeed, but wow, was the packaging beautiful or what! I almost didn't want to open it. Almost!


    Chargers are in the stores. I got one today. But forgot to add AppleCare. Dang it!

    I didn't even think the edition was available to ship at launch.....

    In any event, haven't seen any in the wild. However some Asian girl was eying my wrist when I was out earlier.

    I've yet to see another in the wild. Everyone seems to be noticing mine (white sport band is like a beacon). I intentionally put on a long sleeve shirt last night when I went out to dinner with my family to avoid the attention.

    I am still surprised about just how HEAVY the box was. Was considering using it on my vacation but do not want to add a pound to my carryon. :eek:

    And YES. Loved the packaging.

    I think it will take a good eye to spot any SS with Classic Buckle. It looks great but does not demand attention. I love how tasteful it is.

    However, I am CERTAIN I will spot any of the sport band colors if I see them.

    So far just my wife's and my own. No one has "noticed" mine either. I did use it to pay with Apple Pay at Panera last night, the cashier didn't seem the slightest bit interested that I paid for my dinner with my watch.

    I've used it twice at Starbucks. Both baristas got excited about it.
