Apple Watch: A ‘must-have’ or a ‘toy’?

It looks like I was one of the first few hundred folks that ordered an Apple Watch, Sports Edition, as soon as the Apple Australia web site opened up for orders.

My order is due to arrive between April 24th and May 8th.

I’ll be posting my thoughts here shortly after I receive it and get a chance to put it through its paces.

My key criteria will be what most folks will likely be thinking:

Is Apple Watch a “must have” or just a “nice to have” or just a toy?

One of the challenges here will be evaluating Apple Watch as it works at the time of release (including Apps from other software developers) compared with what the Watch may be capable of doing when the software developers really get their thoughts together and truly add value to make it the product it could be.

Like a huge proportion of you, I’ll be keen to see what value and in what areas it can add to my daily life, versus it’s marketing hype value. I’m certainly not into buying an Apple Watch for the fashion or geek value.

Before even seeing it, I have formed some opinions, as I’m sure you have, but I’ll be sure to post them once I’ve had a chance to see how it fits into my lifestyle.
