    Dear Abby,
    I got the 42 Milanese. I really like it but don't feel I need it. And of course I don't NEED it but I may not even want it. Should I wait longer to use it in a few more circumstances or just return it now and save 740.00 dollars. It's cool and beautiful but I find myself needing and wanting my phone just as much???

    We won't benefit from it anyway as apple can't sell it as new. If you are the class of citizen where $740 is a lot of money and you can't justify keeping it then you should return it. It's not going to change from what it is now.

    On a side note I hope you aren't posting this to troll and get a reaction from those of us still waiting for 42 SS Mils...

    If $740 isn't much money to you then record a video of you smashing it with a hammer. Then post it to troll us. :p

    Dear Confused in Philadelphia,

    The only way that I can really answer this question for you is to try the Watch myself so I can really understand the dichotomy of emotions you're experiencing. I have messaged you my mailing address so that you can send your Watch to me; after a few days of trying it out, I'll let you know whether I think you should return it or not.

    Not a Fraud,

    Thats why I went with the sport model. $399 is much easier to swallow than $699.

    Nope, I'm 100% torn


    I hear you, but I always what the highest quality goods, with highest quality materials, I figured if I loved it then I had the model I wanted, if not there's a return policy. That being said I didn't go into it expecting to return it but I knew it was an option

    Personally, I think the watch will be more useful the longer I have it. Like the iPod touch, I thought it's cool but not a must have. Then the iPad I thought it's like iPod touch but bigger. However, with the times they have been useful and the amount of time they've been used- I didn't foresee that when I first got them.

    You've only had it 24 hours. Why not wait a few more days and see if it becomes more a part of your day to day activity before making a decision? You have two weeks to decide.

    This afternoon I used mine to push the Brentford scores live using Forza - that was brilliant. And directions walking to the pub last night were also really handy. I think the use case is going to emerge with time.

    $740 is a lot if you're not 100% delighted.

    I was like hat with my release-day iPad 3 (I was replacing an iPad 1). It was the first Apple product that didn't blow me away - so I reluctantly returned it to best buy.

    A few months later, Apple obsoleted the brand new iPad 3 with the much better iPad 4. I had a lucky escape. Bought the iPad 4 and decided that it was worth it. Still have it today.

    $740 is a new unlocked iPhone 6s in a few months.. Makes you think.

    You spent almost $800 on something that you're not sure if you want/need? This is why I went for the cheapest model (38mm sg - it might show up in the mail someday). It's a 1st gen product, I've never worn a smart watch before, I don't know exactly what the experience will be like, so I went the cautious route. There will be plenty of iterations after this 1st gen, so I'll get a nicer one then if it continues to appeal to me.

    Agreed 350-399 makes it feel like an expensive toy but not a huge commitment.

    Which reviews? Almost all the ones I read were exceedingly positive.

    Can you afford it?

    Yes ---> You must make the decision. People on the internet know not of your usage and whatnot

    No ---> Return it. Purchase a cheaper model if you REALLY feel like you still need it.

    I have had a Pebble Smartwatch since December 2013. So I knew that I needed the Apple Watch. Having a Smartwatch has became part of my daily life. The Apple Watch offered my features and has allowed me to abandon my Fitibt (or will this Monday).

    If you woke up and found the watch had been stolen, but at the same time found 740$ In cash where the watch used to be... Would you be happy, sad or neutral?

    If you can't answer this question yourself than you should return it. I love mine and find it better than I thought it would be.

    If for whatever reason you plan on returning it....sell it instead...you WILL make money.

    If you have to wait to see if you need it then it's not for you.

    I did get a 38mm Sport strictly because it's a first generation device, and I wasn't sure how much I'd actually use it. Now I wish I had spent the extra $$ for the stainless. I'm finding a lot of uses for mine.
