Not at all!! For me, I feel like I'm taking a leap into the future. If someone asks me of my opinion of the device, I tell them. It doesn't bother me at all. How do you feel op?

Two minutes and thirty one seconds of my life I'll never get back.

I'll sum it up and save everyone the time.

I got an Apple watch. I used it. People asked me about it. I'm bashful.

Waaah. Grow a pair, dude.

Not at all. I think it's how you act when you use it though. I just act like using my watch to do stuff is completely normal... and no one notices...

Nope. I use it anywhere and anytime. I've only had a couple of people ask me questions about it, but I didn't mind at all. I love my apple watch.

Best way to have people not talk to you about your apple watch? Put out a youtube video telling people you have an apple watch.

People are just thrown off by it. Especially when you use Apple Pay. However for me.. It's pretty great that i just wave my wrist and the transaction is over. #Winning.

I don't get why he would be embarrassed...? Strangers talking to you, asking you about it? Ugh, gonna crawl back to your cave and hide with your tinfoil hat..

I don't have mine yet (arrives tomorrow) but I can imagine that using it out in public would be similar to using the first iPhone. They were not common and their unsubsidized price made them considerably more expensive than other options.

The Apple Watch is most definitely going to feel awkward in some instances, but this in only because it may not be seen as "normal" to the user or others observing. In time, wearable usage may become more common place and we will look back and wonder what the big deal was.

As with all new tech, I wouldn't say I get embarrassed, but it's sometimes uncomfortable if the person acts like it was a dumb purchase. It happened a lot with the iPhone 6+. Typical response: "It's just so big. Why would you want a phone that big?"

It's especially irritating when someone asks how much a new tech piece costs. It's okay if it's in a truly curious manner, but if you just want to know so you can slam me for it, **** off.

Otherwise, I invite pleasant chit chat with truly interested people. :D

The fact he has to include what he does for a living when people ask about the watch he's wearing, proves to me he's making much too big a deal out of it and an inflated ego. I used to like his TechnoBuffalo tech reviews, but less and less so lately. He's become apologetic for liking Apple products and seems to continually placate his Android fans now, even though Apple reviews are what built his YouTube channel. Probably going to unsubscribe after seeing this.

Yep, and it's usually the latter. They're usually not genuinely curious, they usually ask that question so they can make themselves feel more fiscally responsible and look down on you.

Some people just don't like attention. Speaking for myself, while I love new technology, I rather not have to answer random questions every time I pull out my watch.

EXACTLY! Everyone's first question is that when they see mine.

It's like they almost want me to say "More than you can afford pal" or "if you have to ask..."

Yeah it's pretty annoying, they try to make you into some kind of a snob because you choose to spend your money on the newest technology, but just end up making an ass out of themselves. Everyone has something they like to splurge on and spoil themselves with, for me it's technology. And for people who never spend money on nice things for themselves even if they can afford it, well that's your own stupid problem. That money won't be of any use to you when you're dead anyway.

True!

Some people like cruises, some people like to travel to remote places.

Others buy motorcycles, boats, cars...

I don't know why it's so hard just to appreciate and be thankful for what we have.

Honestly I feel fortunate enough to (a) afford one and (b) be able to acquire one this fast (I preordered on at 12:08 PST April 10th)

I'm mostly just disappointed he said embarrassed of instead of embarrassed by. I couldn't listen to much less after that. Really though, he acts surprised about something he sort of figured was going to happen. He's trying to find something to make a video about where there isn't something. Boring.

This bloke comes across as someone who craves attention , though he pretends he hates it.

In the three weeks I wore mine , I got very little attention, people just did not care. Odd comments here and there, but generally people were not interested.

He doesn't like attention but yet he creates a YouTube video complaining that he's getting attention? Weird.

I've had a few people ask about my watch but it's not like I'm constantly hounded all day long.

I have not had to many people ask about it, twice I used it for Apple Pay and the person at the register would ask if that was the new watch, and a few days ago I was at the grocery store and the first truly interested person asked me my thoughts of it, and what I liked about it, etc. So nothing to major yet.

He's not good looking so he's not use to getting attention. Now that people are paying attention, he doesn't know how to react.
