Ariella, 

 

I think it is not yet confirmed if the watch will be out soon; forget about price.

For me nothing will ever replace my mechanical watches; all handmade with great skill and precision.  These pieces are timeless and will be passed down to my child.  A smart watch would be not retain the same timeless, classic value.  As with all technology, it will immediately become outdated.  Thirty years after one would get a smart watch, what value would it have as an heirloom?  It'd be the same as handing down 8-track tapes to your children.

They need to. They might appear to be losing steam to their competitors recently.

@HH,

Lets hope the market will favour this product because I see Apple exploring some areas where it seems other manufacturers are not looking into.

A smart watch might make the yonger generation to fancy wearing wrist watch but then for how long before the excitment wears off.

@Susan,

Well, as long as it tells the time,its not too differenent from a wrist watch.

Since Apple 's desire is to take a wrist device to another level, maybe we should call it "watch Plus".

@ H H,

Apple may not have a better product right now but Apple tends to come closer this time to his consumers.

I cant predict the outcome of this one but I know that Apple is looking foe a way to cause a wave again in consumer electronics.

Will this really hit the market like the previous product-let wait and see.

HH, 

I also thought that many people -included myself- don't wear a wristwatch any longer. However, this device will be something else, not a watch. I think the fact that we are calling it a "watch" is because no one has come up with any other word for it.

@ Wale,

You are right, a piece of device may be magnificent today but become history tomorrow. Technology is never stagnant  and wherever its leading us, we are seriously following.

@Pocharle,

well,t hat is still the secret of staying on top of the ladder. You do not remain there when you are no more relevant to humanity.

I believe Apple is doing everything possible to remain in our hearts and our lives for a very long time.
