The day I retired I stopped using a watch!

I think these devices will eventually end up in the 'things that marketing departments got wrong' museum.

I do use a tablet, a laptop and (mainly) a desktop. However now I have retired I find a Smartphone and an Apple wrist watch a step too far. Life is more than spending too much time on gadgets - gardening, fishing, walking, swimming are far more important ...

I would not take a mobile phone abroad if on holiday either. Of course those with high powered jobs may see things differently!

I'm like pine man stopped using a watch when i retired,if it#'s dark sleep,if it's light wake up,if belly rumbles eat.Always 100% accurate with me,saying that my clock needs a recharge during the day every four hours.

I don't know very many young people who actually wear a watch in this day and age, Apple has spent the last 8 years trying to convince people that with an iPhone they do not need a watch now they are trying to sell a completely useless article at an outrageous price.

"...end up in the 'things that marketing departments got wrong' museum." Just like the classic '70s Casio calculator watch then:-)

I get the impression that marketing departments are really struggling to find something that is truly a must have tech device. The recent disinterest in the tech polls have indicated that we're in a techy doldrums spot. The next device is going to have to be really unique and unexpected to get the techy trade winds billowing sales figures upward...

Apple it's simple really,bring back a solid state iPod you'll sell millions

Basically, all the Watch does is act as an iPhone remote control.

Waste of money in my opinion.
