    Max price people are willing to pay for Watch = $610 ; $567 w/less then $350 answers.

    How much are you willing to pay for the Apple Watch? We know the sport 38mm one should be the starting $350 price.

    Please state the edition model and size you want. Then say what is the MAX you will pay for it.

    Either Apple Watch, Apple Sport, or Apple Edition

    and either in 38mm or 42mm,

    then the max you are willing to spend.

    Making a poll will be to crowded since their are so many choices. I will instead count each of your answers and add the average them out.

    ----------

    I would spend a max $600 for the 42mm Apple Watch.

    I'm not sure which model I will get, but I won't pay more than $50,000 for it. ;)

    I think the most that I ever paid for a watch is about $125, so there's my max for an aWatch.
    I guess that means I need to find at least 2 other people to help me at $125 each. :D

    ______
    Wait, is this supposed to be serious?
    Then, I won't spend over $12,500 - what's a decimal point or two among friends, eh?

    Maybe $25 just to play around with one, but I don't have much interest to begin with.

    Hmm ... in a perfect world, I would get the Apple Watch Stainless Steel with a Milanese Loop. I'm still not sure whether I want the 38mm or 42mm model. I'm definitely waiting until I can try them on in-store to decide. My preference is the smaller size, but I don't want to lose out on the screen real estate or the potential for a slightly better battery. And if the 42mm is just as comfortable on me as the 38" ...

    As for the most I'm willing to pay ... I'm praying that combination will be under $1000, but I'm not going to hold my breath. So I may end up compromising on the Milanese Loop (and possibly on the collection) to bring the price down to something a little less fiscally irresponsible.

    Worst-case scenario ... I get the Watch and deal with a cheaper band until I can justify the expense of the Milanese Loop band.

    EDIT: Can't believe it took me that long to realize I'd written the sizes in inches rather than millimeters. Geez!

    If it would work for me as a fitness/outdoors watch, I would pay $500 for the stainless steel version or the sport if the stainless steel were higher.

    Unfortunately, as it currently sits, I wouldn't pay anything for it, since it doesn't solve any problems for me.

    For the 42mm Apple Watch with Stainless Steel Bracelet I will be happy if it cost under $600, if it costs more I will still buy it.

    For the 42mm Apple Edition I will be happy to pay up to $1800, if it costs more I won't buy it.

    For the first gen, probable the lowest model and pay 400 max. Improved battery life and FaceTime features of a future gen, I'd go with the stainless watch and pay no more than 600

    Probably up to £500. Aiming for stainless steel 38mm. If that goes beyond £500 then sport edition.

    I think $500. Unless there is a version with bigger storage, like 16 or 32 GB. For that, I'd be willing to pay $600. But for storage at 8 GB or less, I wouldn't pay more than $500. If the steel version costs more, I'll get the aluminum.

    I might get the aluminum regardless of cost, depending on weight. But that's a separate discussion altogether.

    Just curious, why would you need a high capacity storage on the Apple Watch?

    Not paying more then $400 and it must be 42mm. Judging by the rumors, I'll probably get the Space Gray Sport 42mm.

    If I can get the Stainless Steel one with a nice band for £350-400, I'd go with that, but I think that's going to be pretty unlikely.

    I spent 250, on a fitbit surge. Not quite the same thing, but it shows the top level of my budge. While the Apple Watch will have a lot more functionality then the Fitbit, 250 is the maximum I'm willing to spend - which means the Apple watch is priced to high for my budget.

    What is the max you will spend on the Apple Watch.

    I'm looking to get the Stainless Steel 38mm Apple Watch with the Milanese loop and willing to spend up to £500 ($750). If I can't get the Milanese loop I'll probably go for the classic leather buckle instead.

    Exactly what my price point is. Plus tax

    If the SS is more than that, I will just get the aluminum.

    Wow seems like I'm pricing too high, but then again I'm also hoping to include an extra band in the price.
