I would say it's a success. They will keep selling them. I think it would be a lot more successful if they lowered the price point significantly.
100% agree. It seems clear that what we'll be seeing with watchOS 2 - minus, perhaps, a few new additions - is what Apple intended the Watch to ship with. I don't doubt that they had some inventory hiccups, and issues with a few models *ahem Space Black*, but I'm almost positive that the OS that shipped was just a placeholder. Peep the "OS 2" cues in the original Reveal video.Overall it does seem to me that Apple kind of rushed the AW to market. I say this as the OS and the app seemed like a work in progress.
It's a watch... there's really only one "must have" feature for a watch. What would you like to see it do natively - not an app or anything that devs will likely do once they have time with them?Its a gimmick and just doesn't have anything in terms of a must have usage/features - its an overlap product.
Seems to be a typical of apple offerings now, 'me 2'
Then why are you wasting your time on this sub-forum? It's pointless, right?I can use my watch to tell the time, or my laptop, or my phone.. My watch is much better made, better put together and better looking than the AW, so if its just a watch - thats the point - its pointless... i don't need it
To you. The rest of us benefit greatly from using it with key tasks that the AW far better at than the iPhone. Just as iPad is far better at some key tasks than iPhone, the same can be said of the AW.I dont go into sub forums - only new posts..
but correct, its less than useless as a device.
Exactly.Then why are you wasting your time on this sub-forum? It's pointless, right?
A total success for me also. I did resist the temptation to purchase one for months, feeling somewhat like what a lot of folks are posting here. I finally succumbed to the temptation last week and so far I am happy with the decision. It's actually kind of nice to just lift my wrist and see not only the time, but the day and date, the local temperature, and of course my calendar. Notifications of incoming e-mail is also a plus for me. You can configure the watch face and glances many ways to suit your particular needs.It's been a total success for my everyday life. Very convenient & helpful.
There was a post a while ago where someone bought an Apple Watch off the shelves from a Apple store. It had a production date of I think it was June. That gives a clear picture on how much the Apple Watch missed Apples expectations.The only correct answer is that no one outside of Apple's top executives knows right now. Anyone replying with any other answer is just talking out of their behind.
I do not think Apple sold quite as well as Apple had hoped but they are looking long term.Loving mine, still a bit of a novelty, I'm sure there is lots more to come.
