I will never have a Apple Watch

·

I don’t think I’ll ever have an Apple Watch but that’s because  I’d not make proper use of it. I think if you use it properly they’re great.

Agree. I used my fitbit for all of 2 days..

I use my Garmin for sports, and my automatics for the rest of my life :)

One place I don’t get emails and calls!

·

I agree that you will never have an Apple Watch.

I highly doubt I will either, more because I dislike the brand and their current form factor than any love of gears.

·

Moving forward or am I tainted in your eyes for having one in the past?

·

I have had an apple watch but I don’t think I will have one again. 

·

I don’t currently have one, nor have I ever owned one, but I wouldn’t say I couldn’t ever see myself getting one. I’d even argue it’s more of a tool than most mechanical tool watches, tho it doesn’t stir up any emotional longings for one like the way “real watches” do. I’m interested in seeing how they develop the Ultra over the coming years, tho they’d have to drastically shrink down the form factor before I’d even consider strapping one to my wrist.

I don't like the idea about the amount of personal data tech devices are collecting. It's more than a little creepy.

At least a traditional watch won't spy on you or harass you with notifications. When I go for a walk, the phone stays at home. It's just me, my dog, his ball and my watch. It doesn't get any better than that.

Guess what guys!! Just got the new Apple Watch UltrA!!! So awesome!!!…

oops wrong thread…

zzzzzzz

They all look the same, a boring, uninspired shame of a "watch" which is essentially a miniaturized cell phone on the wrist.

It is not a watch it is soulless consumer electronics.

  1. Please don’t get me wrong, what floats your boat…have at it. I can see a tech savvy person might think how antiquated most watches are. It’s honestly a small rebellion against technology (as I type it on my I-phone).
·

I still hate it but I'm running out of reasons not to have one.

I would hate to wake up every day and just slap a miniature iPhone on my wrist. But the functionality is other worldly from my usual enthusiasm space.

I don't see myself wearing one watch on each wrist.

I dunno...

I used to own an Apple “Watch” which is more a PDA than a watch, and it becomes reciclable trash after 2-3 years, so $400 down the drain. 

Also, I already have enough buzzing, pinging, ringing from my phone, so having more of that on the wrist is just…. in my opinion, moronic.

And I would love to see anyone passing down a working Apple Watch to his/her grand kids 30 years from now.

·

I have my fourth one currently… so 🤷🏻‍♂️ There’s just no satisfying alternative for fitness use IMO.

BUT! I don’t see it as a watch necessarily. If it was only a slim band, I’d still wear it / double wrist it with a real watch. I’d even prefer it like that…

It tells time and goes on your wrist… it is indeed a watch. Your definition of a watch is just crude
