    I received mine in the mail a couple of days ago and have been playing with it ever since. When I ordered it, the guy told me I would not be able to talk on the phone on it but I just immediately made a phone call the minute I got it and it worked.

    I never realized how much I hate taking my phone out of my pocket every time I get a text or call. It's so nice just to look down at my arm and not have to drop everything to reply.

    I also like how it looks like an ordinary watch and doesn't draw much attention.

    Anyone else get one? What do you think of it?

    Got one. I like gadgets but don't always wear a watch. When I do, it's usually a G-Shock or Suunto so not sure how much use I'll make of it.

    I was going to get one, but I recently spent [an outrageous undisclosed amount] on a new bicycle, cause having three just isn't enough. icon_lol.gif

    And I'm saving to pay cash for a "new" (used) car, so all my disposable income is in the process of being disposed of. Maybe someday...

    That won't work with fitness enthusiasts who have really vascular forearms. icon_wink.gif

    Wait for the iWatch 2S. It will have built-in GPS, come in more colors, and will have a new proprietary charger that will make everything before it obsolete. icon_lol.gif

    LOL, I was thinking the same thing. Also, people with sleeve tattooed arms may also have a problem.

    I am going to look for an Android version of this type of watch. Looks like this would be a lot of fun and convenient.
    I also feel really sorry for the guys with extraordinarily hairy forearms who don't try before they buy.icon_lol.gif

    Isn't that a given with all Apple products?

    Apple products are made in China by slave labor. How wonderfully "progressive" of you to support such practices.


    Except there are thousands of WalMart workers also thinking the same thing.

    The bigger question is what devices aren't assembled in China?

    (I used the Iwatch money to buy an iPad Air 2 so Microsoft and Intel can suck it.). Maybe next year.

    Does the watch still have the feature which tells you what your pulse rate is? That's the dumbest thing added! It serves no purpose other than the fact that showing a number means you don't need CPR.

    Please tell me which cell phones and accessories are all made in America and are paying their employees a good wage. I'll just sit here and wait for your answer.

    Oh, one can avoid products produced by companies that violate human rights. Does that mean that you might have to "do without" the latest gadget? Sure. But who REALLY needs an Apple Watch?

    And the hypocrisy is on full display when RJ members who continuously write about how "progressive" they are and how they are supportive of "human rights" make no attempt to boycott products made under these horrible conditions.


    Ok, again...

    Tell me how many big name US companies don't farm out their assembly to Foxconn in China? As long as Foxconn leads in low cost assembly, even the major South Korean manufacturers will use China.

    most Americans are completely physically unable to contribute to the assembly of most handheld devices because their fingers and their asses are too big without being a whiny bitch about it. We can barely replace a cracked screen without wondering why there are screws left over.

    Next.
