    Just recently moved to the Bay Area (East Bay - Concord) and I am surprised at how many people I see with the Watch. I work retail on the weekends and the number of people not only owning the Watch, but using it for Apple Pay has all but tripled since just 3 months ago when I lived in Los Angeles (and also worked retail).
    Now, I know I am in Apple's "home" area as it were, so I was wondering if others from around the globe are seeing the same uptick.

    Cool!

    I don't see a lot of people wearing the Apple Watch in Asia and Australia.

    There seems to be a slight increase in Apple Watch owners here in Singapore since I purchased it last July.

    I've seen a few here in Ohio. I did see one man walking in a torrential downpour the other day. I could not believe he wasn't doing anything to protect it. I'm so paranoid about my iPhone or iPad getting wet!

    I don't ever see anyone with an Apple watch, but I think that will change when the weather gets warmer and we are wearing short sleeves!

    Working at the Mall I see a lot of Apple Watches as well as interest in our bands so we bought 38 and 42 mil lugs to accommodate them

    Funny how many above 60 yrs wearing them as well

    Yep, I'm over 60 and I wear one. When I switch to my Note 5 I also wear my Gear S2. Some of us old geezers enjoy new fangled devices.

    I haven't spotted an Apple Watch in the wild yet, in Vancouver. Not a lot of people discussing about it either. It's a bust I say.

    I have a friend that loves his. I think I may get it in the future, as it will rekindle my memories of Power Rangers contacting Zordon. lol

    Oh and I live in Anaheim of southern California.

    the watch is water resistant. you can take a shower with it on, but you can't submerge (swim) with it. Getting it wet doesn't hurt it.
    your phone and ipad are Not water resistant.

    off subject but can you give me your opinion on the gear S2? I have S7 and iphone SE and i am thinking of returning the S7 because I like the Apple Watch so much.

    Upstate SC USA here. I've not really noticed any other Apple Watches here, but then again I've only had mine 4 days after being an Android user for 8 years. :-) But now I'll be on the lookout for more people using them.

    Not tons here. I only know 3-4 others who have AWs. I get big eyed looks when I use it for Apple Pay. Funny thing is, I went to a work thing in Grand Rapids, MI last month and I'd say 1/3-1/2 of the 70+ folks there had AWs. It was really weird to me.

    My barber and Church media guy both have the Space Gray Sport. That's all I've seen wearing one in my circle of friends and family. I do not see them often until I venture into an Apple Store.

    Maybe it will come in handy if dementia sets in and they need to find their way home!!

    I'm really falling for the Gear S2, it's a nice watch, very smooth and fast, love the rotating bezel too. Only drawback would be lack of apps but for me thats not a problem. However, though it has it's charms it's not on the level of the Apple Watch but I much prefer it to Android Wear when I'm using my Note 5 which I love.

    lol, I hardly think that this is enough to declare anything a bust.
