An expensive watch like the Apple Watch is totally worth the high price.
Even though the Apple Watch is called a watch, telling you what time it is, is actually one of the minor functions of this device. If all a person wants is something that will tell them what time it is, then buying an expensive device like this is not worth the money that it costs to get one. However, the Apple Watch does so many more things, that just calling it a watch does not even begin to describe it ! My daughter just got one of the new Series 3 cellular Apple Watches, and she gifted me with her old one, which is a Series 2 Watch. Since I have heart issues, it is great having something right on my wrist that constantly displays what my heart rate is at, so I can more easily tell if there is any kind of problem going on with my heart. It is also a fitness tracker, and the circle chart shows how many steps I have walked each day, how many calories I have burned, and how many active minutes i have spent that day. Because it also uses Siri, I can actually just speak to the watch if I am starting a walk, and Siri starts the activity tracker for me and ends it when I am done walking. This watch is also a phone, right on my wrist, so I never miss a phone call anymore because my phone was at the bottom of my purse and I didn’t hear it ringing. I can see who is calling and answer the call from the watch, and I can also receive and send text messages the same way. There are so many different features of the Apple Watch, that it is totally unique, and if you are looking for a device that can do it all, The Apple Watch should be your first choice.



Kind of

I love expensive watches. The problem for me is that the Apple Watch is not one of those. I think they are extremely overpriced and not worth the money even though it is a smartwatch. I am a fan of traditional watches which can only tell the time and the date. I don't like any of the smartwatches because they just don't look nice. I would gladly pay a high price for a branded watch but just not for the Apple Watch

Overpriced junk.

Like most digital gadgets these days, the Apple Watch is just a gimmick. It is a nonessential item for tech junkies and people who have disposable income to throw their money away. Now, I'm not one to tell people how to spend their own hard earned money, but this stuff is junk in my opinion, just like all Apple products. They cost an immense amount of money and don't have much to show for it besides having an Apple logo on it. To each his own, but I would never throw my money away on something like a smart watch when I have everything on my phone to begin with.

Totally Overpriced

First it is made in china. And it is made up of component. Just like any other 100$ watch. It's just apple logo that is made to look like it is expensive. And on that point you can see that it's not really worth the price. People are fooled to buy some of such type of the material. And it makes things a bit harder to make use of as well.

Expensive gimmick!

As all Smartwatches regardless of who they are manufactured by - are as yet - not true stand alone items and are in reality - nothing more than an expensive gimmicky device that may make life a little easier - by reducing the number of times that someone has to remove their phone from their pocket

They are to me a total waste of money - especially considering the fact that they're totally unnecessary - as not only is reaching into a pocket or bag not too strenuous an activity for most people - but more importantly - they are still not a replacement for a Smartphone - the latter of which are way, way more functional and much easier to use than a Smartwatch.

No and No.

I am Apple's user, but I strongly disagree with the prices that are practiced by the company (they're really expensive). There is no doubt that the technology they offer to customers is great, but prices could be friendlier.

I dont' understand what can possibly justify paying so much for an ugly watch that has fewer options than a smartphone. Whenever I need a mobile application I use my phone. If you want to see the time on your wrist you can buy a normal old-fashioned watch.

Watch are all the same.

I don't want to buy expensive watches because it just like wasting my money. Class A watches are fine to me if that watch tells me the correct time. So why buying a an expensieve watch if Class A watches can tell you also time? My point is be practical in life. Because you can use other money in other things or you can buy more things. It is just my point of view because other people like expensive watches.

I disagree!

Watches today are a novelty , no one wears a watch anymore because the phone can do everything. The only reason why a person would even bother to wear a apple watch is to show off how much money they have. Because watches are so uncommon today that even business men don't even bother to wear watches anymore.

No, it isn't. Apple watch is definitely not my style and I don't like the design of it. It looks like a cheap knock-off watch that you can purchase for like 5 bucks. I will never purchase any Apple products since not only they're so expensive but the specs are not so great. It's not worth it at all. I prefer Samsung Gear watch since it's so stylish and the specs are awesome for its price which is really worth it, for me.

No, a watch should be just a watch

When I wear a watch, I want a watch that does exactly that. Tell the time and tell the time accurately. I don't need a watch that tells the time, as one of its minor functions.

I already have such a device. It's called a tablet. It tells the time, too, as one of its minor functions. Plus it can do all the other things which this expensive misnamed watch can do, for a lot less.

Why must I have everything on my wrist?

Not so

An apple watch may be expensive but at the price it has plus the limited access you can do with it does not have an equal balance. First things first an apple watch is just a watch but programmed with some cool features. It does not really do anything that special except for apps like tracking your heart rate, how many steps you have walked and so on. It really should be focused on the watch itself which is suppose to give time. They should at least lower down the price and not make it so high as if they were selling a phone or laptop product.

I'm not so certain because all of it's features are about the same as an iPhone. I wouldn't pay over $100 for a watch unless it was for fashion. This being said, I can not imagine myself buying an apple watch as I do not think it will fit my needs. However, one thing I do like about the watch is the readiness of it. For instance, if you get a text message instead of getting your phone out of your pocket or purse you can just look at the watch to see who texted you. I love that feature but I will definitely not pay $100 just to get it.

I think the apple watch can be worth the money for some customers who may benefit from the features. However, I don't believe that it is worth it for every potential customer. An apple watch is a huge expense for a lot of people and it is ultimately up to them to determine if that price can make sense in the context of their budget.

The product is expensive because people value it. Apple is only a billion dollar company because people buy their products, even though they are more expensive than other brands. So I think they actually inflate the electronics market, because virtually all Apple-branded handsets are more expensive than the competition.

IT is worth the high price for only the rich, the poor should buy a watch that will be affordable for them.
Posted by babyright on 11-10-2017
I also agree with you! And in many cases, the poor definitely do not even have the money to buy a simple watch. This is unfortunate but unfortunately it is the reality around the world.

People pay 1000's of dollars on watches for the beauty and the quality. Apple Watch is not just a piece of beauty but also a quality made. I don't want to reiterate why someone has to put more money on a watch which shows just time like any other less expensive watch. This time its not just a watch but a Smartwatch made by Apple. So people have expectations that was set by Apple with it's earlier products. I would think if you already use iPhone heavily you will be more productive and you save more time because the time you spent on phones will be shorter as you feel less need to go to phone when all the basic notifications are in your watch. Second, Other smart watches are not as much elegant and beautiful as Apple's version.

I am glad that you are enjoying your watch and that it so good for you and your lifestyle. For me i would not have use for it. I think that it is way overpriced for what it is. I would nevet spend that amount of money on any watch ever. Then again I really do not have that kind of money at my disposal.
Posted by Sue on 11-10-2017
Why not if it worth the high price then people should GI for them.I believe it has features that worth the price.zif the rich can afford it then so be.I like priced pieces that are worth the money.
Posted by lovely on 11-10-2017
Most of the people are falling for the apple brand. But in reality almost everything they make is made in china. And there is nothing about them is real. So you get to see that there does not seem to be much value out of the watch. So that does seem like the waste of money. Plus expenses pile up if there are any spending on the repairs.
Posted by overcast on 11-11-2017
I don't think that I will ever buy an Apple watch. To be honest, I have never considered to buy an iPhone or Apple Watch. It is actually a worthless investment. I need a phone to make calls, send messages, surf the internet and play games. I don't need an iPhone to be able to do those things. Similarly, I don't need an expensive Apple watch. People mostly buy Apple products because of the brand and Apple is there to attract customers through its marketing strategies.
Posted by Pixie on 11-11-2017
I would not be buying an Apple Watch, I don;t have the money to be able to do this. This is one of the things that I might do when I am getting the kind of money coming in that I want. I just think that all Apple products are over priced in general and not just the watch. It is one of the things that we need to keep in our mind. This is important.
Posted by kgord on 11-11-2017
Why does the manufacturer set an expensive price for any product? Because the product has high manufacturing price. Why does the product have high manufacturing cost. That's because the products use things that cost lot of money. Therefore, expensive products are better in quality. I may not buy an Apple watch, I don't have that kind of money. However, I totally understand the importance of high end products.

I'm surprised people even use watches nowadays, lol. It seems like everyone has a cell phone. However, though, if certain people want to spend money on lavish watches - then who am I to tell them no? That's what freedom is all about, though, I sure wouldn't buy one, even if I had the cash.
Posted by jyy on 11-12-2017
To be frank about watches, I wonder why people are still wearing a watch when the cellphone can tell you the time. Don’t tell me you don’t have a phone huh. My impression of the wristwatch now is its display purposes only. The watch is now like a jewelry to adorn your wrist and not really for the time anymore. So I guess the expensive Apple Watch is worth the cost since it enhances your image with the elegance of the said watch.
Posted by Corzhens on 11-14-2017
Not for me, honestly I won't spend a lot of money on a watch. Personally, I stopped using a watch, I always check my cellphone, or someone else's phone. I know these kind of watches are new generation, but for me is just part of the multiples gadgets we can find nowadays. Based on the fact that I'm very distracted, and I can leave it anywhere, also that I've caused damage on my old watches, and this is a very expensive one, I rather not to buy it. Eventually it will replace with something even cooler.
Posted by ballyhara on 11-14-2017
I think in fact the technology is innovative, but the price really is high. Here in my country Apple products are unfortunately very expensive because the dollar is worth more than three times the value of our currency. In addition, import taxes are also very high. So I definitely give up buying Apple products around here.
Posted by hermessantos on 11-18-2017
I wouldn't call the Apple Watch overpriced junk. However as a consumer and a big tech fan - I prefer regular top of the line watches. They don't have to look expensive but certainly be a sturdy, good looking watch that can tell time, and has glow in the dark technology and day and date available. I stick to the usual brands like Timex or Quartz. An apple watch probably does a lot of cool things - but I just need my watch to tell time. Nothing more.
Posted by NickJ on 12-02-2017
Well, I have yet to find a single Apple product that would be worth its price. Apple is famous for overpicing their products. Just look at the iPhone X for example.

Therefore, for me personally, this watch is definitely not worth it. You can buy a watch with the same functions for a cheaper price. All you do if you buy Apple is pay for the brand.

If I were given the option between spending $1000 on a basic designer watch or a smartwatch, I would personally rather spring for a smartwatch rather than the designer one. But as far as the smartwatch itself goes, they only really extend your existing devices. In that regard I would only think it would be very useful for someone who constantly uses their portable devices in a way such they need easy access to information at any time. So, if I were given that option again, I think I'd just take that $1000 and run.
Posted by Linen on 12-13-2017
Your reasoning gave me a laugh especially in the part where you said you will just take the $1,000 and run. Truly, there are things in the market that are very expensive that we call exorbitant to mean they are not worth the cost of the price tag. With the Apple Watch, I guess it is very expensive not because of the features but just because the brand is Apple which carries a legacy of class and elegance.
Posted by Corzhens on 05-22-2018
Totally worth it if you can afford it and/or you use Apple products because they all work great together. People see Apple Watch as a "time-shower" and say "why should I pay for a watch at that price!?" but it's more than just a regular watch. Apple is known for their expensive products, I say just let people who want to pay for their products enjoy them.
