Been an Apple Fan since the early 90's, have been in line for various releases... When Apple first announced the Apple Watch I was beyond happy! I pre ordered a 42mm stainless steel and paid around $700 and some change... when I got it, I noticed that really the only thing useful was to keep an eye on my notifications, give a quick reply to a text message using Siri, and tell time... all the otrher functions are there, but I found it cumbersome to use.. I couldn't get myself around the fact that i had paid $700 only to do that.. I returned it.. and bought a 42mm sports edition for $400 and change... same thoughts as before and now it looked like a toy to me... I returned it as well... I waited to see what the new edition of the Apple watch could do... it did nothing beyond what I knew it could do... so I just said to myself... I'll pass... Then, a few days ago I was looking something unrelated on ebay, and I saw an ebay ad for Apple Watch... I looked at prices... first generation Apple Watches stainless Steel for $200... after a couple hours of research, I ordered a 38mm stainless steel, for $200 including shipping, I got it in 2 days... the seller graciously included 7 different sets of bands for free! I got various Apple branded ones, I believe the price of the bands to be more than $200... I'm very happy with my Apple Watch I don't have to be over protecting it, does what is supposed to do, watchos 3 is great! I couldn't be happier!
