Reality is the Enemy of Hype

Sorry, but Dave is totally right on this one. I understand the point Bryan was trying to make but his perspective is entirely based on a made up theory.

Bryans argument was based on the idea that “If people tried it out before preorder then Word of Mouth would grow interest”. The problem with that is he assumes every single person who tried it would love it. But that’s not happening and almost everyone is coming to the same conclusion. “Its cool but is currently unnecessary”.

I’m saying this as someone who’s been wanting an “Apple Wearable” for years. I don’t want an Apple Watch, I want an Apple Band. I want notification, fitness and iOS compatibility. So for my checklist then the Apple Watch is “good enough”. But after doing my Apple Watch demo then I’m realizing that the downfalls are overshadowing the benefits.

I still believe in the future of an Apple watch but I don’t feel its worth the price. So will I cancel the order? Nope. Apple got my money and that is 100% because of the fact that I didn’t Try before I Buy.
