Hi there, I've been in the process of buying a new watch since last fall. My trusty Fossil watch finally gave out, and the cost to repair it vastly outweighs the cost to replace it. For comparison, it was a non-chrono stainless steel banded 40mm watch. As an iPhone 6 user, I purchased the Space Gray Apple Watch Sport 42mm at launch, and I'm backordered until June. So, I took a quick look around the internet for the Citizen Eco Drive line of watches, which I am liking because they have no battery and run off of sunlight, and the models I'm particularly looking at have both water resistance as well as a chronograph. The chronograph function would come in handy. I take short breaks often at work which last 30 minutes, so this function saves me from either finding a networked work computer, logging in, and checking my time status on our digital timecard program, or finding someone else that was given a break at the same time as myself and ball parking an on-time return. I use my iPhone's timer function when I think of it. I was thinking the Apple Watch would just be that much more accessible to use. I think *for my tastes* the Apple Watch would be a little bit too "gaudy" for formal occasions like weddings so that's where I think the Citizen could fill the role nicely. But, I think I would definitely get a benefit out of having a majority of the notification functions including navigation on my wrist, as well as the health tracking benefits of the HRM. I don't really want to make two separate watch purchases around the $400 mark right now, and while I could easily cancel my Apple pre-order, I thought I'd toss this out there for feedback. This forum has a tendency to be more insightful than people might admit, and helps break up my "tunnel vision" when dealing with a brand new product. I think I would truly get a lot of longevity out of the Apple Watch as it's not something I'm intending on trading in or reselling for several years regardless of the new technology around the corner. I'm interested in the Apple Watch for the technology it has right now. Thanks.
