    I love it!!!!:)

    I hate it!!!:mad:

    It feels like something's on my wrist all the time!:confused: it's like when people put something on a dog and they try to shake it off:D

    Never wore a watch, so far it's a love hate affair:D

    Any first time watch users getting use to wearing a watch all the time?

    This is the main reason I wouldn't get one. Haven't worn a watch in over a decade and don't want to start now.

    You'll get used to it! I used to HATE wearing accessories until I got a Cartier love bracelet. Now I wear rings, watches, bracelets, etc, haha. I'm anxious for my Apple Watch now. :)

    For customers who do not wear a watch on a daily basis, I can imagine it will feel quite different for them. Don't worry though! I'm sure you'll get used to it over the course of a few days! :)

    Yeah, I got my first watch at age 8 and I've been wearing one on and off since then (25 now), but it still takes getting used to any time I start wearing a watch again after long periods without one. Luckily I've been wearing my current watch for the last two years, so I'm ready for the Apple Watch!:cool:

    I'm hit or miss with watches. I don't like jewelry on my hands/wrists, but so far so good! I used to wear a Seiko for years.

    Don't fret, zmunkz! Your watch will arrive soon I'm sure! :)

    OP, I'm kinda the same. Not really used to wearing a watch despite always owning one or another. My current watch goes months without seeing the light of day. I pull it out during exam season and even then I just leave it on the desk while writing.

    I haven't worn a watch in over 10 years. When I first put my 42 SS with Milanese band earlier this afternoon I noticed it and felt it was heavy. It's only been a few hours and I already barely notice it!

    Not to worry, Tsuchiya, I'm sure your watch will be arriving soon! I'm honestly very impressed with how fast Apple is shipping these watches! If I had to guess, and I rarely guess, I'd say they shipped over 2 million for launch day alone! :eek:


    Very good to hear! All it takes is just a little wearing to get used to. Similar to breaking in a new pair of shoes. :)

    I was born way before the 80's, I was late most of the time:D especially when I went fishing, but I got good at using the sun for time...seriously:eek: it works well. I just hated wearing much of anything, just shorts for me;)


    Thanks, I hope so, it's really odd, I am so happy I got the 38mm.
    I'll probably get use to it, maybe it's too tight.

    Been wearing a watch for about sixty years (currently a Pebble Steel), and it would feel weird _not_ to have a watch on my wrist. Looking forward to my Space Gray with the black Leather Loop I've ordered for it.

    Anybody remember the Ex Machina WristMac? I wore one of those for years. Before that I wore a Casio scientific calculator watch that did hex and octal arithmetic. Bought it in London; I'm not sure if it was ever released in the U.S.

    I haven't gotten mine either (38mm SG BSB) & won't till June. ### Haven't worn a watch in like forever! No need really. I decided to get one because, well, 1st & foremost it's an APPLE watch! 2nd is because I just started riding a motorcycle and store my phone in my saddle bags or secured in my pocket, which I can't really get with gloves and all, so I thought the watch would come in handy! I can't wait to get mine...someday! ###
