Likewise - I thought I would get in early as I don't really want to wait for the new model that will be coming out in 12 months. Think I will just buy another when that comes out, and the same again 12 months after that.

I thought they were introducing the iPhone but had just renamed it Apple Watch!

18 hour battery life - I guess it gives you a new excuse for being late to a meeting/work - I forgot to charge my watch last night.

IG are launching an Apple Watch trading app - what could go wrong ;)

It's all about the flashy flashy of the markets - more trades = more commission for them. Wonder if Warren Buffet is going to use it :lol:

Any one else think the Apple watch in general is a solution trying to find a problem?

Did you ever buy an Apple watch Peter, or anyone else for that matter?

I still don't see it catching on, trying to find a solution to a problem that doesn't exist imo.

Doubts remain over prospects of Apple Watch

I did, but I wanted a sports watch and other related items so a cheap sports watch was a good choice for me as I was committed to buying something anyway.

Some nice features on it, but it's still a very niche product. Not sure how it would work with mainstream users.

The OS refresh should expand its capabilities I guess. It's really useful for keeping an eye on things and doing other stuff without getting your phone or iPad out. Subtle tech.

Thanks for the update. I am guessing it can't be used for trading but I wouldn't mind seeing a video about it on the channel if you ever get chance.

A couple of weeks ago I was at the Dangerfields comedy club in new york. There was this one guy with a really high-tech watch in the audience. The watch would light up in some fancy blue color every second. Needless to say the guy got picked on by *every* comedian on the stage. He truly had a rough evening :lol:

I love gadgets (hopefully next year I'll have my own personal robot: http://igg.me/at/buddy-companion-robot/x/10953665 !) , but the thing with the watches I don't understand. I'll wait until they look like a rolex and have infinite battery time.

This stock is really taking a hammering. Fallen from around $130 to $115 very quickly... taking out a few key technical supports on the way
Nasdaq is up 8 percent this year, but when the main stocks go down, its usually a very bearish sign for the index as a whole
