    Is it worth buying? What can it do that my phone can't? I don't care for the measure heart rate and exercise thing. Other than that? I don't wanna waste money.

    Have you researched the Apple Watch? If you have no interest in exercise or physical fitness portion for the Apple Watch, then It would serve as notification device primarily for you. The Apple Watch serves as in between from having to use your iPhone. The Apple Watch isn't something you need, it's more of something somebody wants.

    To me, it's not a waste of money. But to you, it very well may be.

    What kind of question is this? Just a few millimeters away from this post is an entire thread, consisting of thousands of posts (Apple Watch: All the Little Things), with all the information you'll ever need. There are countless other resources available to you describing the functionality of the Watch. Read up on the features and then come back and ask a slightly less open-ended question.

    Ultimately, you will have to make up your own mind on this issue.

    Well, you can't use it to edit audio tracks in GarageBand like the phone can; but you can use it to answer phone calls around the house without having to run to wherever you left your phone.

    (side note: remember when all phones were corded and sat only in one place in the house? The best thing was, they never got lost!)

    Many more thoughts of mine:

    Only way to know for sure if you will like is to try it.

    Other can not make that choice for you. There are thousands of threads you could read but only having one on your wrist for a week or so will tell you if it is worth it.

    You can wear it on your wrist.

    I really like your Watch collection. Especially your Fathers Omega. That's the most timeless (No pun intended) you own in my opinion.

    Exactly. NO reason to start a new thread.

    It's what I'm wearing at work today, too. Still running after 49 years. Good little watch, and the 5xx series of movements were some of the best families Omega had produced (according to some other sources and watch blogs).

    I don't use it for fitness or health, i use it solely for notifications, and as a fashion accessory.

    how can you be sure you won't use fitness tracking? Maybe it'll open the doors of fitness for you
