    Apple smart watch sales plummet.

    Recent market analysis shows Apple watche sales have plummeted by over 50% over the last quarter compared to last year's figures. With 47% of market shares, Apple is still the market leader, but there is obviously less interest in smart watches in general. So much for the predicted demise of regular watch manufacturers. We all know that watch conglomerates across the board have announced reduced sales over 2016, but apparently this can't be attributed to the recent introduction of smartwatches.

    And a rebuttal:
    Wristly confirms 94% Apple Watch customers are ‘satisfied’ | Computerworld

    Computer World's source:

    One thought: AW owners are self-targeting, being comfortable with wearing watches and with the idea of a do-many-things-but-not-everything accessory device.

    I can believe that, I want a smart watch but I'm waiting for more practical features in a more traditional design. I actually thought the Tag smart watch was close but a little too much. I think a Seiko smart watch diver style would be perfect. Apple really was kind of a miss for me, the Samsung was too techie for me.

    I will get a smart watch when it can project a usable sized screen. I don't even like using my phone for anything but talking.

    Seriously. I bought an apple watch a few months back. Used it for 2 days. 3rd day it stayed home. 4th day it was on a local classifieds site, 5th day it was gone.

    Such a small pointless screen.

    Does the fact that a five-inch screen is a terrible multitrack audio editing platform prevent you from buying a smartphone, too?

    I have a smartphone, I only use it for non phone activities when my macpro is not nearby. I like a real keyboard too.
