    I donít want an Apple Watch. Is that so wrong?

    I just canít warm up to them. I get the appeal, but for me a watch needs to be, well, a watch.

    Thanks for listening.

    Me either. I’m already too attached to my phone. I don’t want or need more technology crowding in my life. I have friends that have them and they like them. Just not for me. YMMV.

    Absolutely not. I don't think that there'll ever be the emotional attachment that us loonies get to the mechanical or quartz, "real" watches that we have and those that we lust after. You'd be hard pressed to find someone stressing over which phone they should have with them for the birth of their child..... or their wedding.

    For some though the appeal, which for most on here isn't persuasive, is almost a necessity. I have one of the new ones with 3g, and not having to have my cell with me and still being able to get texts, calls (in a pinch), and other notifications is an incredible thing, particularly if (like me) you're occasionally in a place where having a phone accessible isn't realistic. It'll never be more than a small phone which happens to kick a watch off of my wrist though.
    Cheers,
    Mike

    Every time I see my sister she tries to convince me. This thanksgiving she actually got me thinking about it. I started down the watch rabbit hole again, ended up here, and came to my senses.

    They have no soul. No history. Nothing to love but efficiency.

    I look at my antique pocket watch and see an unbroken line connecting me to the beginnings of watchmaking in Swiss valleys in the Middle Ages. The only connection I get from an Apple watch is to my cell phone.

    Definitely want some kind of advanced smartwatch until they introduce brain implants. Unfortunately, nothing smart enough yet. Long live the Borg!
    Keep calm and carry on.

    to me, a watch is a wonderful balance of form and function. the apple watch is all function and no form. no thank you.

    I kind of like it but refuse to go for it due to the battery constraint.

    hmmm....

    i spent some time looking at the available watch faces. i was actually surprised how many of them are terrible. there were a few that i found ok, but none that made me say, "wow". a big missed opportunity, imho.
