    Obviously there's a controversy. The dog has 4 limbs and he only bought two. Such a joke.

    Amazes me that the HR Monitor works through all the fur.

    Does this mean that I can check my dogs HR with my watch?:rolleyes:

    The message is obvious of course but mushy all the same.

    He thinks the best of the Apple watch even two of them is fit only for his dog.

    He's entitled to his opintion.

    He could have done it with a Swatch.

    He could have done it with a Rolex.

    He could have done it with a Patek Philipe.

    He believes his opinion matters and so does this demonstration - good luck with that.

    I have the SS watch but the Sports version is also a worthy watch. Some people just have to show-boat about their feelings, I wonder why because I don't know about this guys indirect relationship to Apple or if he is just hell bent on a whim but it really shouldn't matter.. a disportionate demonstration against what?? Nothing said beyond the demonstration.

    People get infuriated by these stories in China because there is the general belief that this money is from graft and corruption. It most cases, this belief is not unfounded.

    This is of course true.

    Money can of course demand attention, believe me if you are giving me enough money you have my attention.

    It doesn't mean that what you say when you have my attention is in any way valuable unless it means you give me more money.. and of course I'll believe you until the end of time.. or cashflow, whichever is first (and as long as it doesn't get in the way of me and my family)

    I'm currently using a Tagg GPS tracker. Worth every penny. It's waterproof, has GPS, a fitness tracker, reports ambient temperature, and stays charged for up to a week.

    While I would probably pay more for an Apple dog collar, over the $100 I spent, I doubt Apple will get into the business. Though considering they are pandering to the fashion community, many of whom are devoted tho their canines, it wouldn't be that big of a stretch, so dog and owner could have matching wearables.

    ----------

    The dog with the watches has a Fendi bag to carry the iPhones in. Maybe the other dog carries the Fendi bag?

    I love my dog very much, unfortunately he can't tell the time. If he could, I'd buy him 1 for sure and it would be the Edition. (I only have the SS.).

    Only a Siberian husky? Should have gotten a Tibetan mastiff (about $2 million for a pup) if he wanted to show off his wealth.

    Aside from the ridiculousness of this, it's irritating that he'd make the dog wear those. No dog wants something strapped to their paws.
