Apple Watch: Wait a minute! This puny wrist-puter costs 17 GRAND?!


Re: Waterproof?

It might only be a 'a mark 1, underpowered toy computer for your wrist, that is guaranteed to be comprehensively superseded at the next upgrade cycle.'.

The Sinclair Black Watch (which was a watch and not some kind of Scottish regiment) retailed new for £24.95, you can get one on ebay (new in box) for around a grand which is an appreciation of > 5 times inflation (nice hedge if you can get it).

A 1st gen iWatch (new in box) costing $500 today could be worth $20000 in 40 years.
