    $349 is a high starting price considering that the watch pretty much relies on the iPhone for everything. If you get another band and the larger faced watch you are looking at $500 easy. I can save that money and just pull my iPhone out of my pocket and do the same stuff plus more
    ...but you'll miss out on looking like a hipster. Do you really wanna miss out?

    The reason Apple Watch looks expensive is because we compare it against how much iPhones cost. However, keep in mind iPhones are cheaper because of the 2yr contracts... food for thought!

    According to the reports I've read, only 5% of iPhone users strongly say they are buying the Watch. So if you're buying one, you're likely in the minority. That's still a lot of watches, but it looks different from that perspective. I'm not buying one. I wouldn't buy one if it were $99.99. I just don't like wearing anything on my arm or wrist. Besides, my iPhone is always with me. It does more than the Watch ever will. MobileNations would love it if you took this thread to the Connectedly forum.

    The ones for $349 look kinda cheap, those for $20,000 are too expensive, let's start saving on the one for $7,000
    Or buy a Rolex...

    Not so expensive for such an innovative product.

    Do I think the price is a little higher than I expected it to be? Yes. Is that going to stop myself and many other Apple users from purchasing this watch? Absolutely not.

    I could have gotten the Pebble watch along time ago. I chose to pass over it and see what Apple had planned. I am glad I did. The a Apple Watch looks like an amazing device that is solidly built.

    A $349 starting price is steep for a device that cannot do much of anything when it's not connected to an iPhone.

    The one I want, the 'Classic' with a Milanese Loop is going to be above $900.

    Whilst I do love collecting watches (I have a Breitling, two Rolexes, a TAG and an Omega), I am just not going to spend that money on an Apple Watch. No siree.

    My daily driver is a Titanium Citizen Eco-Drive ($800 approx) and is pretty beat up. I'm not going to swap that out for a more expensive Apple Warch that I bet isn't as strong as my current watch and I'm certainly not going to compromise myself by getting a cheaper Apple Watch that I don't like.

    Never mind, it was a fun idea whilst it lasted.

    Boo (:

    Would you pay $349 for the Apple Watch? Why or why not?
    No. First, if people want it i say go for it and enjoy you purchase.

    No for me because, I don't like wearing a watch. When I wear a watch i prefer a very fashionable luxury style "dress watch." Also that situation is the rare time when i need to dress up. And where i live everything is very casual. It'd simply be used as a sports watch for me. It's way more than i'd want to spend on a sports watch. At most i'd spend $99 for such a thing. I know what the watch does but those are not things that i have a pressing desire to do. Like the health tracking. I'm fine tracking what's on my phone and i take my phone when i jog anyways for, the gps, and to take random pictures when inspiration strikes me. There's nothing wrong with the Apple watch but it's solution to a problem I don't have. And a pricey one.

    Hate watches ! anyway I bet it's not waterproof,shockproof or any other kind of proof. 50 is about top money for a short design life toy. watch out for the floods of reports about broken watches.

    Personally I don't see a need for one of you have an iPhone. I haven't worn a watch since cell phones came out but I am sure they will sell like hot cakes just not for me.

    I don't the  watch is that expensive at all. At least for the sport edition which IMO is the only one worth getting. I've spent almost that much on just regular watches. My only have 2 complaints.

    One, if you want to buy the other straps other than the sport, it costs a ridiculous amount of money roughly 40% of what the entry level  watch costs.

    Second, I didn't see if the watch faces are the only faces you can use or if they will allow developers to write additional watch faces.

    The steel with milanese loop is $700, the weird part is, you posted this after the keynote ended

    Way too expensive if you ask me. There seems to be a dangerous trend with Apple. They seem to think they can release the most expensive products of their kind constantly and that people will continue to buy them. Maybe it will sell well but I don't think its going to be the runaway hit that they think it will be. I was excited about it too but after hearing the pricing I think I'll pass. $600 for the stainless steel is a joke.

    Agreed. I think the entire pricing structure is completely f-ed.

    I couldn't watch the keynote as I was driving. Yeah I know, weird, huh?

    Still, the Milanese loop watch is $700. I think I'll pass. A shame, if it had been South of $500 I may have considered it more strongly.

    Frankly, the 349/399 for the Sport is quite cheap for what it is. I may go for the space grey/black one. We'll see. I'm not 100%.

    Expensive, yes. Too expensive? Almost!! But everyone who has been waiting on pins and needles for this thing will shell out a good sum of $ because we can finally get what we've been waiting for! Will it be worth it? I think that for most, actually, yeah it will...if you really want it in the first place, you'll probably end up digging it. If you're wishy washy about it then save up for something important to you.
