    Seriously! Apple Watch is great. Some bands are more expensive than others. But it is a damned watch band. There is about 5 square inched of leather at best and 1 ounce or less of steel or aluminum in the thing, and it cost $489 because some fart in italy or France put his name on it?
    Who the hell pays $1249 for the Hermès version? The case is made of stainless steel instead of alluminum. Big deal.

    I am not knocking apple for this. I am all for capitalism. I just think anybody who spends $489 for a piece of leather, and $1249 fir a piece of leather, and steel instead of alluminum, needs to have their head examined.

    Some people even spend $3000-5000 for an Hermes crocodile watch strap.

    It’s the same people who spend $3,000 on a purse just because it says Louis Vuitton on it. If you enjoy the fashion statement and you can afford it then to each his or her own. It’s certainly nothing I’m going to get upset about.

    Some people just like to have exclusivity and flaunt their excess cash flow. I’m not of the Hermés bands myself.

    I am guessing it is always fun to have something new no matter what the cost.

    Not this girl and I'm all about fashion. I'll pass that torch to someone else to pony up the dough for that band. I will say it would make a nice present if someone decided to ever gift one to me LOL not but in your dreams girl!!

    The Apple Pencil works great on the iPad pros. It supposed to be better than the others out there.

    I sold mine when I sold the 1st gen 12.9” iPad Pro. I haven’t bought one yet for the 10.5” one. Really don’t have a use for it. Yet.

    A person who can appreciate and afford an extremely well made and exquisite looking product.

    Why people need to assume that it's only because of vanity and feel the need to vilify anyone and everyone who spends more money than them is beyond me.

    I certainly would not spend that much on a watch band or strap. Guitars are a different matter though. $4,000+ for a good guitar makes sense. To each their own!

    Sometimes we forget that there are a lot, I mean a lot, of very very wealthy people. I’m not one of them.

    I'd venture to say the same person who spends $1k on an iPhone X.

    Oh, and in my line of work (audio / video designer and integrator) my Apple Pencil works GREAT with my IPP. :-)

    I sooooo want a 9.7" iPP with/Pencil! I'm getting the X and an S3, but when Apple announces the next series of iPads, it's a Pro for me.
