Apple Watch: I Don’t Care

AppleWatch

US$349 is a hell of a lot more than I’m willing to flash on my wrist.

That’s also more than the original iPad Mini cost.

It’s probably a great device but the presentation bored me and I really don’t care to see it again.

Loose ends: We didn’t hear a thing about screen resolution or battery life.

And there’s this footnote:

This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.

Standard boilerplate for any device. But is there really any chance it won’t go on sale even if it fails FCC regulations? Please.

    $349 it will be a woman size watch..And, yes like you said no word about battery,that’s means they didnt solve the main problem with this type of things battery life. So … Keep your old casio watch.

    • Ha. You’re not far off saying Casio watch. I’m not wearing one now because the strap broke (and it’s one of those that’s built-in!), but that watch cost me around US$15. No way I’ll spend US$349!

    It is not doing much for me either. I guess I will have to see one in person, no mention of battery life and I was totally wrong about the watch thing too.

    My guess is the device is not yet finished and not optimised to be able to give a proper battery life figure yet. I would consider it a failure if i have to charge it every day.

    I am not the target market. Look at teenagers and mid 20s they do not tend to wear watches and use their phones for telling time. That market may not care about battery life as they have to charge their phones everyday anyway.

    So I didn’t missing anything newsworthy. Good to know.

    Is it me, or do I smell a return of the Sculley/Spindler/Amelio era?

      Right there with you.
      iPhone 6 shows almost no innovation (except for payments, let’s see if they take off), but the watch is straight appalling. They’re losing their touch, which is no surprise, since Jobs was that genius and the core driving force behind the company. Said it before, will say it again.
