    For its capabilities as a first generation Apple Watch, I would say that it is overpriced, but I mean this is Apple. I'm not sure what more you could do or what features you could add to it though. It will certainly appeal to those interested in making fashion statements, but its going to grow old pretty quick I think. It will be interesting to see what happens when Apple's passion for thinness hits the Apple Watch.

    I plan on getting the 42mm 'sport'
    Me too. I'm thinking a 42mm Sport, but my wrist is relatively small so I may end up going with the 38.

    Now that you mentioned it, I might wait for the second wave of Watch as well. I don't normally purchase the first wave anyway. I believe that for us; the waiters to sit back and see what the pros and cons are.

    If you put it in perspective, a watch from Hugo Boss or somewhere like that is $500+ and thats just a regular watch. $349 is a bargain

    That is, if you don't have an iPhone already. If you need an iPhone, that's going to push the cost up a little more.

    The price will not change if you have or don't have an iPhone. The only way the price will change is IF you get the 42mm case or get the Edition Watch. Also, only way you can achieve full function of the Apple Watch, is if you have an iPhone; for the purpose of it syncing/ pairing up with your phone.

    As a first generation Apple wants to make sure it will stand the test of Time. Reason for the long wait in my opinion

    While I can see why people would not, I probably would. I know it's a first generation device but I won't be able to help myself! Something new and novel!

    It should be 249 I don't really think it's worth that much.

    If you buy the Apple Watch and don't have an iPhone, you're going to have to buy an iPhone to make the Apple Watch work. So instead of just the cost of a watch, you're going to have to get an iPhone as well (pushing the cost up) for functionality of both devices to work.

    It does require an iPhone, unfortunately for many Android users that want the  Watch.

    It's worth whatever people are willing to pay for it. If sales are low during Q1, the price may come down.

    I can't wait to see how Apple plans to sell this to people. It's nothing like the iPad was. I'm interested to see their strategy.

    $349 is too steep for something so blatantly non-essential.

    I guess some may want it fitness functionality (kinda bulky, though), but there are way cheaper smart bands (Fitbit, Microsoft, etc.) that you can buy for that.

    There are far cheaper watches from Hugo boss. Go to their Web Site, they list prices...

    And a watch from them that costs that much, is actually worth that much.

    $349 for a smart watch is a lot, when those types of devices are already engaging in a race to the bottom and are generally seen as blatantly unnecessary to the general public.

    You really can't compare a watch like that to the $349. That is the sport model. The other ones are going to be much more expensive, and for something you have to charge every night and is so heavily dependent on software and updates to stay functional, you see these become outdated very quickly.

    I really wish they would. I would've picked up a Moto 360 a while ago if it was iOS compatible.

    It's definitely the best looking smartwatch, IMHO.

    Looks like you're back on iOS again, huh? I'm about ready to make the leap back, too. Using a Nexus 6 and it is just leaving me pretty underwhelmed.

    I haven't used android for a phone in a few years. Was gonna buy the nexus 6 since I'm on Verizon but it's a little large and left me underwhelmed. I'd love a 360 with my iPhone though ha.

    If you are a Casio/Timex watch person, yes, the Watch is too expensive.

    If you are a Rolex, Omega, Lum-Tec (my current fav) etc etc watch person, no, the Watch is cheap.

    Just depends on what type of person you are when it comes to watches.
    love LumTec, I have a couple (m45 and v4)
