    … I don't ever want that unsightly tan-line again.

    I can't think of one thing I'd use Apple Watch for that my iPhone can't do better. Even with Apple Pay, I have to keep cards or cash with me in case the vendor doesn't use it.

    It does look cool, though. I like everything except the black bezel.

    A $349 guitar tuner, perhaps? Nah.

    Love the spirit!
    I'm with you.

    Here come those that like the watch to defend it! :)

    Lol I felt that way when cell phones were small for a time. Now in the era of phablets, not so much..

    Thank you for letting us know how it is not for you.

    You may want to head over to the Miley Cyrus forums and post how you don't like her also because I'm sure her fans would want to hear that because it changes how they feel about her.

    There's also "battery anxiety". Power management on all of these devices is another job that I don't want to worry about.

    iPad … iPhone … MacBook … Watch?

    Throwing in another opinion. Another point-of-view. There may be others that share my reasoning.

    The internet is serious business. :p

    Why would people who don't care or want an Apple watch be in the :apple:watch forum

    Saying your iphone does what the Apple watch does tells us you don't understand the purpose of the watch. There is no other reasoning other than your tanlines.

    I care about Apple Watch enough to write about it. Have you ever considered why people write about stuff they are less than stellar about? Perhaps you were excited about something and it let you down a bit. I don't know. It's the internet, brother. Why are you stressing out?

    As Apple admits - This is fashion baby!

    Tan lines matter boys and girls!

    Can someone post a list of forums for gadgets I'm not buying so I can go there and post how I'm not buying them?

    Thanks!

    Post here only if you're going to unquestioningly throw money at Apple. I get it now.

    Huh... nope.
    It looks like a phenomenon applying only to Apple products.

    It looks like not a single thread on there, started by one of us- letting everyone know that we are NOT buying a Moto 360.

    Weird.

    I know I'm not over there because I own no other products from that manufacturer, whereas I have dozens of Apple products and have been using them for decades.

    I'd say it is fair that we can all have opinions and post them here if we'd care to.

    You can look at it that way.

    Or you can say it'll replace your current iPod Shuffle, Fitbit, wallet, and current wrist watch which can all add up to over $350

    How's it replacing a shuffle when it's on your wrist, weighs more, and has no way to plug in headphones?
