    The hospital I work at offered apple watches at a discount and paid for thru payroll deduction. Got my series 2 SS that way. Sold it for a series 4

    They are everywhere here. See probably 40-50 daily
    I know what you mean! It’s almost become a hobby to see how many I see when out and about

    No blinking lights for me,it used to look like bloody Christmas in my favourite pub in the days when everything had led’s to let you know that your device was turned on, when you got a call or text the things used to go mad !
    I know one( 1 ) person who has an iWatch,who was given it,says it is ok for golf, wears proper watches the rest of the time.

    After having several Berrys I did miss it when I changed to iPhone however its not missed now though it could be useful if you have your device on silent most of the time and you're busy.

    I doubt I will ever wear an Apple Watch or any other similar “watch”.
    I wear mechanical watches because they.....tell time...and are mechanical marvels. For instance my Zenith El Primero with 268 parts making up the movement. Sometimes it’s good to not be bothered 24/7 with every ridiculous notification every 2 seconds. Life is too short.
    But, hey, that’s just me.

    Haha!
    Yup, old and new both have their place. My phone is new tech and does me just fine. My watches, double edge razors and fountain pens keep me attached to the old. I like to have a balance!

    I also love mechanical watches and I wore a stainless Rolex Submariner for 25 years and bought an all gold model in 2007 when I could finally afford it. But, now that I am heart patient, I have seen the advantages of the newer electronic tech watches.

    I can monitor my heartbeat and other health related issues which is a valuable resource to me. I sold my last Rolex and mechanical watch in 2012 and now own a stainless Apple Watch and looking for a ceramic model.

    I will always love mechanical watches and have owned a few high end models over the years i.e Rolex, Patek, Audemars, Zenith and a few others. But, now that I am retired, my priorities have changed and the Apple Watch is what I sport on my wrist these days.

    This has been discussed for years. I might have agreed a few years ago. Now I could care less. After getting the first Apple Watch and having a new one every year, a notification LED isn’t necessary. And really, it kind of annoying. I know this isn’t quite the same but I have a friend who has the camera LED flash for every notification and it’s f’ing annoying as heck.

    Although I don’t think it is necessary, I was always hoping they’d add in an led indicator on the outer ring of the home button. Seeing as that went the way of the dodo, there isn’t really any place they’d be able to put it now that would make it look  like.

    That would have been really cool!
