I could easily be proven wrong on this (I don't want to underestimate the willingness of people to buy anything with an Apple logo, and I say this as a big Apple fan myself), but they seem destined to become Apple's Google Glass to me. Too techy and gimmicky for mass appeal beyond the diehard fans and early adopters.

I'll preface my post by saying between my wife and I we own 2 iPod Touches, 2 iPhones, 3 iPads, 2 MacBooks, 2 Apple TVs and an Apple Mini. One could argue that we are, at the very least, Apple enthusiasts. I wouldn't call us fanboys (or fangrrls) by any means, as I won't camp out in front of an Apple Store for days trying to get the first of a new device. We also don't own the newest versions of any of the above items.

When they announced the watch last fall, I was interested. Their marketing strategy of announcing it last fall and actually shipping it this spring did its magic. I put off a potential watch purchase to see what the spring announcement would bring. To say the least, the most off-putting thing to me is the pricing. Never mind the five-figure high-end blings. I had picked out the space grey stainless mid-level watch with the space grey stainless band.

I was naive enough last fall to think that if the watches started at $349 that they might range from $349 to, say, $499 tops. Imagine my surprise to find that the aforementioned pick of mine is $1,100. No thanks.

I also read an interesting "before the event" article panning the watches in advance. While I read it all with a grain of salt, one thought stuck out in my mind - why pay all that money for a watch that probably can't be kept current, software-wise, in a couple years when a traditional watch has been "current" for the last 100+ years.

I'm currently putting traditional watches on my Amazon wish list and paring it down.

CapOne - QuickSilver ($7,250) / Platinum Rewards ($7,250)

This is sort of my thought process. Spending a few thousand on a watch that will last a lifetime is one thing. Spending it on one that will last a year or two is another. While I love a lot of the features and think it would be useful, to me it would be a trade off between style and tech. Big thing about nice watches is the craftsmanship that goes into them. They're more than the sum of their parts. A mini iPhone on my wrist just isn't worth the same to me, despite the fact that on paper it can do everything a Breitling can do and more.

So for roughly the price of the basic Apple watch, I just ordered a Citizen Navihawk A-T (in black). Amazon should drop it in a locker for me in a day or two.
