    I currently own a Apple Watch Series 3 and have stopped wearing it. I wore watches even before the release of the first Apple Watch and still prefer to wear traditional watches.

    I still like the fitness/health tracking features the Apple Watch offers, but would prefer it in a more discreet package like the Fitbit Flex.

    Do you think Apple will ever diversify their wearables portfolio or do you think thy’re all in on the watch?

    I don't think they will, or will need to until perhaps the AW reaches a saturation point. However, there's enough people who make the annual trek to the Apple Store to buy the newest watch/phone/pod/whatevr that I don't think they will ever reach that point. The AW sells well now, is a fine instrument, and works well for the majority of people.

    I don’t. Apple isn’t much about diversifying with the watch, not when they have the top selling smart watch in the industry, they don’t have a need to add/supplement a Lower base model at this point. Personally, I don’t think it’s necessary to release a new Apple Watch every year, and with the rising costs, consumers are not likely to upgrade their watch every year either.

    I think they are already diversifying with products like Airpods, and they have a senior VP of AR/VR inside the company, so...

    They might at some point. I don’t think that they’ll make more than one form factor at the same time, but I’ve always thought a cosmetic improvement would be to curve the watch body to follow the curve of a wrist as many tracitional watches do. I’m not sure what engineering issues that raises but it would seem possible albeit likely more expensive.
