We've finally gotten word on how much the vaunted Apple Watch will cost in Australia, and when it'll be released here. Anybody planning on getting one?
There are three different models: the Apple Watch Sport, which costs between $499 and $579, the Apple Watch at $799-878 and the super premium Apple Watch Edition which rolls in at a ludicrious $14,000.
We were talking about watches yesterday in the office. Lifehacker Editor Angus Kidman claimed he literally felt weird when not wearing a watch. Gizmodo Editor Luke Hopewell felt weird when wearing a watch. Me? I've switched back and forth. I used to wear a watch when I was younger, but haven't worn one in over a decade.
The way I see it: people can get used to anything. I used to feel weird about wearing my wedding ring. Then it felt natural. Then when I began removing it to go climbing it felt weird to not wear it. Again, I got used to it.
That being said, I don't know if there's really a big market for this kind of thing. I think it's sort of... silly? Like anachronistic and weird. I think I'll be skipping it.
