    For geeks, you can tell it is a bit of a let down with all their imaginations running wild.

    For fashionistas, I can see this Marc Newson'd design become a hit for exclusive circles.

    It looks very boring. I'd rather buy the Moto 360 if it was just compatible with iOS / iPhone.

    I think the moto 360 paired with google now > iwatch with siri

    Both in looks and functionality (useful functionality that is)

    Is that possible? That would be so great.

    I love it but i still don't know anything about battery life, I'm guessing since they didn't brag about it that it isn't that great..

    I like it and will definitely be purchasing one. I am very happy there will be a higher end version suitable for wearing to work.

    It's definitely much cooler than I thought it would be, but considering you need to have your phone on you anyway and 99% of the extra features like maps or photos would be easier to use if you just pulled your phone out...meh?

    I obviously love the Twitter notifications and the messages and having Siri for quickly adding events, and the health stuff is super cool...but I'm not gonna pay $349 for just that.

    Maybe if they get a rose gold version of the Edition model and knock the price down in the future I'll get one. I'm probably gonna wait until gen 2 or 3 so it gets cheaper.

    The watch is really good! The phone didn't interest me however I'm just watching the keynote now and the watch is interesting. I've not really been too fussed about other wearables until I saw the Apple watch.
