    What's with all those thinking that Apple Watches are for rich people? It's just like a guy in the iPhone 6s Plus forum saying that gold is for men and rose gold for women.

    I've even seen students here wearing them.
    Disposable income is probably closer. No way I would have considered spending $600 (plus extra bands!) for a watch until this one. Luckily I had the extra to get one, and would do it again. Do wish I was rich though

    I only know one person that has the Apple Watch. Most of the iPhone users that I know (myself included) are not interested in the Apple Watch.

    Apple's pricing though on higher side, still got people buying them perhaps due to reputation and quality, and I'm one of them. I bought my AW but definitely will not purchase the Edition version as it's ridiculously expensive, neither would I buy the Link bracelet as well.

    I know 4 people with Apple watches and have met, just through normal day to day interactions, another 2.

    Since Christmas and the great sale that Best Buy ran, I've seen way more out in the wild.

    I think a part from the price, it's freaking ugly. If they made it look like something I'd wear on a night out, I'd use it.

    For $400, I mind as well get a slick regular watch.

    The past holiday season was the explosion of the Watch watch around me. Prior to the holidays I was only one of a few that had them. Now they are all over. I see no less than 5 every morning at the gym and more than a dozen of my close friends have them now.

    Shortly after launch myself and one other person in the building at work had one. Since then I can think six other people who have gotten one. My wife is considering one currently.

    I know a few. I had one until I decided to return it. No knock against the watch, but I needed to replace my tablet and returning the watch offset the cost by $349. Maybe I'll get lucky and win one.

    Maybe you misunderstood my question. I just wanted to know why a person would want to be in a forum group for something they don't like. I would never dream of joining a forum for - say, a Samsung phone - simply because I don't have one, don't want one, and know nothing about them. And I certainly don't have anything against opinions other than my own!

    Fair enough. I think it's pretty common actually. I stay up to date with Android's offerings, and even post in Android Central every once in a while. I wouldn't consider buying one of their products either.

    I'm starting to see more and more people with a  watch, maybe it's because I'm actually looking for it now or more people are buying them.

    I don't know anyone who owns one. To the best of my knowledge, I've only ever seen one in the wild. That said, I haven't really been looking for them either. For all I know they're under everybody's winter coat sleeves, and they'll be everywhere this summer!

    Maybe.

    Every podcaster I listen to seems to own one, so if that's Apple's target demo, the market could already be saturated,

    As for myself, nobody's yet make a convincing case for why I should get one. Plus they're ugly as sin.

    I love the design but everybody has different tastes. It's hard to make an argument that everyone should buy an watch because it's a watch, and not a cheap one. I wear my watch constantly but I'm a watch guy and I appreciate the additional functionality. My wife hates wearing a watch so I wouldn't even consider getting her an watch.
    I love my watch but I don't feel like a need it. I NEED my iPhone. That's the difference IMO. Maybe watch just isn't for you! (and that's perfectly okay, I should add)
    As far as target demographics, Apple is marketing to anyone who likes watches and maybe wants some additional functionality, whether it be notifications, fitness monitoring, or any other additional benefits not present in traditional watches. It's a wide range, which is why watch costs anywhere between a few hundreds dollars and several thousands of dollars.
    The market is nowhere near saturated. Tech bloggers all have them partially because it's their job to know about the products they talk about.
