Are you planning to buy the Apple Watch?

I'm very surprised there's a dedicated button for a friends app, something like that.

I don't see this in my future. I love my iPhone and iPad, but I can't really see the need for a watch at this point in time.

There are a lot of cool features that I was very surprised with the watch. You mention one of them, navigation seems fluid, making and receiving phone calls, and quick replying.

I don't understand making/receiving phone calls with a watch. now if it was a broach that could teleport me. I'd sell my house for one of those.

What if you have a really important phone call and you don't want to pull out your phone? You can take the call from your watch. There are actually times where I don't want to pull the phone out of my pocket to do a simple function like make a call or receive a call.

I will probably try it....it will be great for meetings(where I spend most of my time) & group settings where using a phone could be considered rude... but a quick glance at the watch isn't disruptive

one thing that surprised me was that it *requires* an iPhone. I was certainly expecting a certain synergy benefit with other Apple hardware, but not supporting android or windows at all was a little surprising to me.

I have to say... I have gotten very dependent on a Smart Watch. It drives me insane when I don't wear my Pebble. I paid like 250 for a Pebble Steel and disappointed in the build quality. I really think when the Apple Watch comes out. I will get one. I still want more information and actually see one. But I do feel like it would be worth it to me.

The budget can likely only handle a new iPhone or an iWatch, but not both. The biggest draw to me to the new phone is the additional real estate on the screen, but that's something I can likely live without. So, I will probably holdout until "early 2015" to make my next Apple purchase. And get the Watch.

Seriously? In what world would they do that in? It's not Apple's MO

I don't want one, nor I can afford it right now anyway, but it's definitely the right price.
