    Personally, I buy what I want to use, not try to show off that I have the latest hottest item. But I know someone who doesn't really use tech but always gets the latest thing just because.

    What about you? Are you getting it because it is the hottest thing? Or do you know someone who does that?

    I have no doubt that there will be people who buy the  Watch for the sole purpose of having the latest hot item. ...

    I'm sure there are those who do that. But $400 is a lot to spend to just "show off" the latest greatest gizmo. Most people will not have one.

    I'd say there will be about the same percentage of "gotta have it" buyers as those who got the Moto 360 when it first came out.

    Its their money....

    I bought it because it was the latest thing out there. I actually moved from Samsung and the Gear to Apple and the Watch hoping to use the Watch more than I did with the Samsung or the Pebble

    Sometimes although the person might not be tech inclined they might have someone who is in their life. My wife for example. She always has one model older as I buy new devices. She is buying the iPhone 6s not because she will know the new features but because she likes the Apple experience and it's the newest model.

    I know several people who purchase things just because they are the cool items of the week.

    Me personally, no. Although, when there are gadgets (especially Apple goodies) I want to buy, I don't particularly care about the cost. You can bet my wife likes that.

    So . . . maybe, to some degree, I'm one of those people, too.

    I will get it because all my devices are Apple and it will be just plug and play.
