OK, NOW the Apple Watch is looking like something I might want... if it was cheaper.

As I predicted - it's evolving.
And having a true wrist phone is finally here!

Still don't NEED one, really... but it's climbing my "toys I want" list!

it's been on my toys list since it came out. unfortunately, since i can't wear it at work i really can't justify it even with the price drop. series 1 would work fine for me, danggit!

I was really close to getting a Series 2 but also realized I can't wear it at work, so no point really.

Safety and GMP policies prevent any kind of jewelry above the waist while on the production floor.

Wife and oldest daughter love the watches, use them for tons of stuff.

But I dont think LTE is something they need just yet... since they always have their phones in their purse..

How about wearing it on your ankle?

$399 with cellular, less without.

$599 for the good steel version.

My iPhone armband rubs against my side when I jog and sometimes it gets really irritating. Having my podcasts playing from my watch would save me some discomfort.

...Except that I'll have to wait for Overcast to be updated before that's available.

Apple used to sell something perfect for just this use. Let me think. Oh, that's right - an iPod!

I don't want to have to have the same thing on my wrist every day. I guess that's silly but it's how I feel. II like switching out watches like jewelry and don't want to be obligated to wear the same watch all the time.

An iPod wouldn't be able to download podcasts on-the-fly while I jog.

...Unless they took an iPod and incorporated a cellular phone into it. That kind of device could be revolutionary. I should patent it before Apple decides to make something like that.
