    I find this a little too personal and intrusive, so I won't be participating sorry.

    Average Income

    I have a salary of £1,000,000 per year and have bought the SS model. The reason I didn't go for the Edition is because most of that salary I earn in my dreams.

    I see no poll but I would disagree. I bought the sport because it is light. I'll just say I'm considered part of the upper middle class...

    Make it a poll and more people will participate. Let's just say I'm a senior manager in financial management industry, have plenty of disposable income, and I'm getting the space grey sport because is a first gen product.

    I have found that excluding the multi-millionaires and billionaires, how much people spend have very little to do with how much they make. I know people at work that make a third of what I do, but they west more expensive sunglasses, clothes, watches, etc. than me.

    Pointless poll. I bought the SS Space Black, and my boss who earns more than me bought the Sport Space Gray.

    Then there are people I know who earn more than me & my boss combined who wouldn't buy anything more than the Sport model because they don't see it as good value and would rather spend the money on cars, motorbikes, property, etc, etc. Not some peice of tech that will be obsolete in a couple of years.

    Then there are others who stretch beyond their means and will go and get a loan or CC debt in order to secure a SS Link Bracelet just to show off to their friends and colleagues when in reality they can barely afford to put food on the table.

    Never judge a book by its cover. There are lots of millionaires out there who dont buy expensive clothes and lots of people on the breadline who insist on Armani, Hugo Boss, etc.

    Not sure I entirely agree.

    Had the black stainless steel been available with a black sport band I'd have up-selled to that. I don't like the stainless steel version, and space grey was close enough to the black to make it ridiculous to consider paying and extra £600 to buy. Especially as I'm not fussed by the link chain.

    You can probably tell if someone has A LOT of disposable income with the watch, but not if they could ONLY afford the cheapest version.

    I can't see any poll.

    And don't forget, that's not neccessarily the case. Many people purchased the sport model due to it being a first generation smartwatch from Apple with plans to upgrade in the future. Or, while less likely, someone with a lower income may have been saving money for the Edition, with plans to keep it for a long time.

    Unless they buy the Edition, I don't think you can tell much about someones income by their Apple Watch.

    That person with a Sport might have used a fraction of their disposable income on a whim to buy it and will barely notice the difference in their accounts. The guy with a link bracelet might have maxed out his credit card to fund the purchase.

    It has nothing to do with income. Most of us could afford the most expensive SS model, but we went with the 42mm Sport. Now, the Edition has something to do with income. The average person can't afford to drop $10,000 on a watch. Well, they could if they want to dip into their savings and max out a credit card or two, but they wouldn't! :p
