    And you feel safe pulling out a 600-800 dollar phone in public?

    No, I don't feel unsafe wearing my watch. Never crossed my mind of anyone taking it either.

    The question is flawed. Those who can afford an Apple Watch have the disposable income for one . Therefore they probably live and play in places that tend to also be middle class and safe.

    The reason I didn't get one was because I I was traveling to Brazil, known for its pick pockets and tourist mugging. So that's why I didn't get one. It would make me more of a target wearing something expensive. Not just the Apple Watch of course.

    People who travel (and travel to poorer areas or unknown areas) usually make sure they aren't flashing their cash and expensive jewelry around when traveling. It's common sense.
    So u didn't buy a watch because u were traveling? I don't understand. So u couldn't buy the watch, enjoy it, and just not travel with it? Are u now home? Do u have one now? Sorry, jus can't understand traveling being a reason for not making the purchase. Please tell me if I'm missing something.

    People, in general, whether traveling or not, don't usually go around flashing their cash and expensive items. The Watch, as I see it, is not a piece of jewelry (excluding the ones targeted to celebrities), but an extension of the iPhone that doubles as a watch...

    I think if you look at what the lady is asking concerns a Country that has cities not unlike some everywhere in this world! As a pilot who traveled to many places in Brazal, I would not wear anything of value on the streets of Sao Paulo. And my Brazalian wife, who has lived there most of her life feels the same about the major cities!

    I have had mine since August and wear it everyday. Have never felt unsafe and haven't even thought about it. Seems it would be easier to steal a phone than a watch.

    I think its interesting that this was brought up. When I first got my watch, a few months ago, one of my friends asked me if I was going to wear it when I went to New York for the week. I looked at him like he was crazy. Of course I'm going to wear my watch. Like other have said, if you're using a new iPhone that thing could cost close to $1,000...whats the difference?

    On the beginning like 3 month ago I did feel very worried bout the sports model that I have. But I had it now for almost 3 month and just love it, I even have thinner bands on it from moko on Amazon also a case and glass protection, but I just feel better having all that on there plus it's fun to change everything out to different colors!
    Here is mine

    Hope this helps❗️

    One of the only reasons I was considering a watch was for travel. I liked the idea of getting flight and gate information on my watch, along with weather and etc. So I was going to get it for my trip but then decided against it because of the reasons I listed.

    But it's an expensive item worn on the wrist in plain view. I agree with not flashing money and expensive items when traveling. That's why I tend to keep my phone out of sight in iffy areas. You can always just wear a long sleeve shirt I suppose to cover the watch. I just didn't feel like adding it my list of things to keep an eye on when I traveled.

    Never really crossed my mind. I have more people wanting to ask questions and never really thought about someone stealing it.
