    It's not a necessity like the phone is not a necessity. But they're both great to have
    Yep. And you may find that after using the Watch for a time (LOL) your new companion becomes nearly indispensable. While the Watch is an extension/companion to the phone, it does several handy things without it. My personal favorites are Apple Pay and the timer.

    I just have to say that you guys are really lucky to have Apple Pay... Here in Portugal, I don't think we will ever do since Apple hasn't even opened an official Apple Store...

    I love mine! I exercise doing cross fit and love the on spot heart rate , so I know how intense I need to make my workout. The fact that I can see my text messages and incoming calls makes it a must have for me. Now that they have expended the ways you can respond to text messages I love it more.

    I find it useful in situations where i feel it is a bit dis tasteful to take out your phone.

    Also sometimes by hand is dirty working on the car or whatever and i can see what the notification is or who is calling to see if i want to answer it.

    Also i sometimes miss notifications on my phone when in my pocket and walking whereas i can feel the watch vibrate. While i don't use it a lot, it comes in handy when i need it.

    I personally picked up a first gen Apple watch with the sapphire glass and Milanese band for around $200 used and don't regret it one bit. Well worth it. Now if i had to pay $700 new then i would not be so enthusiastic.
