    Which edition? Edition.

    Which Apple Watch? Apple Watch.

    Nuff said.

    P.S. I still love my Apple Watch though. You know, the one that has no name. :rolleyes::D

    I think this the most successful naming convention in Apple's history. Three unique models with differing characteristics, the gang of Jony, Angela, Tim, and all the other peeps I'm on a first name basis with really hit one out of the park. I wish they would rename everything in America.

    Makes sense if you play the angry emoji drinking game in the Pink sport thread! :D

    I get Apple Watch and then Sport but Edition is just too much.

    Who cares what it's called if it's a great product?
    They can call it the Apple Thing for all I care.

    Or:

    Which version?

    Sport, Watch or Edition.

    The stainless model is the "normal" model, so it's called simply "Apple Watch." The sports version of Apple Watch is "Apple Watch Sport." So far so good.

    "Apple Watch Edition" however makes little sense to me, although it does sound vaguely fancy.

    Do people really not understand what the OP is saying?

    He's basically saying it's weird to call it the "Apple Watch Edition". It's like "what edition?"

    Same with the standard apple watch. When people ask "which Apple watch do you have", the correct response would be "the Apple Watch".

    It's a little confusing. The only one that really makes sense is the Apple Watch Sport.

    It's like saying:

    There are 3 kinds of apples: sweet, sour, and apple.

    Ha, Apple jumped the shark on names long ago. Seriously? The iPhone 5 was the sixth iPhone with iOS 6 and an A6 processor. Then the iPad Air 2. Enough said is right.

    Why not buy an Apple Apple Watch Edition edition watch?

    Apple Watch Edition is the worst product name?
    Worse than Apple Power Macintosh Performa 6300CD?

    There's a reason it was back in 1995.

    But in 2015, Apple Watch Edition surely takes the cake.
