I've never met anyone with a smart watch and don't ever thing that I will in the near future. I think even Apple are worried and unsure about the launch as they want people to pre-order on line and not to be queuing outside their stores. It would be bad press if no crowds turned up for the big launch.

I was shopping on the weekend and dropped into my local Apple store when I walked past. There were plenty of people looking at the sealed case of Apple Watches. I fiddled with one of the display models for a minute so that I could say that I tried one. I will admit that the build quality seems solid. I couldn't really figure out the UI completely.

An employee asked me, "Have you picked out the one that you want?" I was going to ask if the Watch would work with my Android phone but decided to be polite and say, "Just looking".

I have no doubt that Apple will sell a bunch of these things. I'll wait patiently for a watch with more functionality and a lower price. I'll give it several years at least.
