So why did you decide/not decide to get an Apple Watch?

I had been shopping for a new fitness watch when Apple made their date announcement. After pricing a lot of fitness/health devices I decided to go for the Apple watch, even tho it is going to be $150 more than the watch I was going to get. So to make myself feel better about the extra out of pocket, I sold my "extra" iPhone 6 and made $599!
So now I know it was meant to be that I get that watch! "justified in my head"

I agree with you Mthoroughbred. I wanted one so I got one! (y) I just wish they would have let you try them on in the store first. I ordered the 38mm Stainless Steel with Black Classic Buckle, but now I want the 42mm stainless w/ Milanese Loop! What's a girl to do?
It was really strange they didn't have a week where people could come in and try them on before they went on sale. The publicity would have been insane.

I don't want to say never, but for right now it isn't a necessity like my iPhone is. If I had the Apple Watch I would still have to carry my iPhone with me to get the most use out of it. I can't really justify the cost. I also, never buy the first generation when it comes to technology. I may revisit the Apple Watch in a couple years and see what has changed.

My mother says I will absolutely love the graduation gift they got me. I know it's not a car as I have one and we will go look for one together with more features. If it's the Apple Watch, I'll wear it and love it, but it wouldn't have been something I had gotten myself.

The day they went on sale (online) was April 10th if I recall. The product was available for fittings on that date. I can't understand why one would NEED to have it in their possession at 3 minutes after the start of pre sale. It is a very nice item, and yes I will probably end up getting one even at the crazy high price, but it's a watch people! Can you not wait a few weeks?

I will wait until June so I can simply walk into a store, pay for it, and take it home.

On line Sale begins 12:01am. Store opens 10:00 am. (10 hours later) The answer is in there somewhere.

Ok I still don't have one.
I had Android watches for a while now. I won my 1st android watch (before it was released) at a Hackathon . I have now 2 Android watches (one round one square) and Pebble time and 2 beta devices.
I done numerous talks on Android Wear design.
I actually do not like the watch form factor. To many steps to use it! I still love Google GLASS and it's my #1 wearable.
If the Apple watch was less priced and I was also developing apps/watch-faces for it, I would already own one.
For now I keep going back to the Store and coming home without the watch. Perhaps after the update is released ?
