While i dont wear a watch all the time, if its a formal gathering, a nice watch goes well with a nice suit. That said, i wouldnt be caught dead wearing an apple watch regardless of its function, it does not have the possibility to ever be a classy accessory.

No one under the age of 30 wears a wristwatch these days.

Bite your tongue, youngin'...

I'm going to be 35 in July and I wear my watch religiously and feel naked without it on! It's been through about 10 different wristbands until I found a nice flexible, easy-to-wash one. The original battery in my watch, I don't know how or what kind of battery it was, but it lasted a good 5 years! Since then I've had to replace the battery every year or two. But I wouldn't even consider leaving the house without it...

its a wearable computer.. not a "watch".. it just has that form factor

its similar to an augmented reality device like the google glasses, but less obtrusive and more stylish (in apple's view).. with no HUD

good comments tho

I always wear a watch but that's mainly because it goes well with my work clothes. I can't remember the last time someone asked me for the time, used to happen all the time even just 10 years ago.

Yeah, I've never worn jewellery but some of my watches do get noticed and complimented by people - which I always found odd. I do have this one Fossil watch that's actual wood and metal which is cool looking and always gets the most comments.

I bought this one at Xmas and it's a great beater watch for work for the price. I also like some of the futuristic LED watches - and actually that site has lots of neato gadgets on it like LED shower heads and stuff too!

I just bought a Skagen but three days ago, actually. More for looks than functionality. That being said, the last time I wore something possessing no function at all I was in middle school.

And I'm sure Apple is "experimenting" with quite a lot of things. One doesn't get where they are by resting on one's laurels.

The arguments of I do/don't wear watches will need to be re-evaluated when this is released as it's not just a time piece.

If you wear a watch today, do you want to spend X hundred dollars for the new functionality of this device?

If you don't wear a watch today, is the functionality of this device valuable/interesting enough for you to become a watch wearer?

I am personally not very interested in this unless it can do things that my cell phone cannot which seems unlikely.

I'm not big on watches other than a fashion thing but I kinda like this idea. We've already offloaded functions previously handled by larger devices to a smartphone, why not offload functions to a watch if technically feasible?

The Pebble looked kinda neat, but I'm not sure how much I'd actually use it (and certainly not at $100+ dollars).

You'll take my wristwatch off my cold, dead wrists.

I couldn't imagine sleeping without one. When I wake up in the middle of the night it's useful to know if it's 3am and I have lots of time to sleep or 6am and I don't. It's useful on weekends to know if it's 9am and I have lots of time to sleep or 12pm and I don't.

Being near blind a clock wouldn't work well, as I'd have to put my face damn near in front of it, and it would be a constant light source I don't want, anyway.

Plus, having the time on your wrist is very useful for discretely checking the time when in a meeting or whatever.

Lastly, they're probably the coolest thing you'll wear.

So it's easier to read a small watch rather than a regular digital clock? Is that what you're saying?

My eyes are -5.5. Yes, it's easier reading anything a few inches from my eyes than anything a few feet from my eyes.

No kidding. I'll be 38 next month, and I've not worn a watch since maybe 16 or 18?


It also depends on A) if you'r not aatched to the hip to your phone - many are not B) What do for a living. Many professions it's impractical to be pulling a phone out when you can just glance at your watch instead. I always wear a watch for work or more formal affairs but don't when I'm just gellin' like a felon.
