    After seeing the cnet torture test, I'm rethinking of buying the the warranty. With my iPhone and iPad, it's a pretty big screen that can slip away from my hands but with the watch, it seems like there won't be any major drops. The main reason I wanted the warranty be fires for water damage, I want to shower with the watch.

    But cnet showed that even submerged in water for 10 minutes, the watch still works fine.

    Maybe instead, I should buy another strap which happens to be the same price.

    Is there something I'm missing? Am I right on not buying the warranty? Have you guys bought it? Why or why not?

    There have already been a few posts on here of scratches and dings... Would be nice to get 2 fixes covered over the next 2 years for incidentals. After dropping all this $ on the watch, whats another $60, right? Just my 2 cents.
