    We need a place to record our big ho hums on this topic.

    IMO this may be a first disaster area for Apple since Lisa.

    So far, the main discussion on the iWatch is about
    sensors for BP and Oxygen levels. Ho hum.

    What else of significant interest can you put in a tiny display
    that you can't get in a Timex for a reasonable price?

    Cost and time to determine effects of an electronic device in intimate
    contact with the skin? No thanks.

    Apple is about to launch an Edsel.

    As everything we know about the iWatch is a big fat zero, not really sure how it can be described as a disaster area.
    Lets wait and see what comes out first shall we?

    Troll much?

    After 30 years and several dozen Apple devices, this is the first one I can predict that I doubt I, or ENOUGH others will buy based on the numerous credible rumor stories, and the pure physics of a watch band sized device which will certainly cost three figures starting with an integer greater than one, to justify continuing the massive R&D still to achieve production go ahead.

    Would hope it's not too late for negative noise to attract attention at Apple.

    Hope you're not in the Somerset area currently underwater.

    That's what most were saying about the iPad before it came out as well. Expected prices were over $1000. We'll just have to wait and see. With Apple's recent success, I'm not going to call anything a failure before it is actually a failure.
