I like my iphone...But they don't need ANY reason or any more reasons to be able to charge even more money than they already do. $700 for a phone is crazy enough.

Maybe if we cut off welfare all the idiots will buy food instead of rushing to buy the newest phone and prices can come down a little.

pretty cool, i wonder if theyre planning to have the iwatch compete with heart monitors in hospital rooms, or maybe put them on the elderly in old folks homes to keep a closer eye on their hearts.

I was listening to the dj's on the radio this morning. During the iPhone release, the guy couldn't get the facial recognition to work. He had to use a back door to unlock the phone.

It still isn't waterproof and it is still made of glass.

Yeah, I'll stick with my Samsung.

We are about to announce a "smoke signal" technology. Once our testing is completed I'll make an announcement here before it's released to the general public. Stay Tuned.

Or you could just spend $20 on a SPO2 sensor on Amazon and spot check your HR with it and accomplish the same thing. No gadget is going to replace a trained medical professional's eyes on a rhythm strip...

Someone explain to me why anyone would by the X instead of the 8? Seriously asking.

True, but it functions well as a data capture and transmission device for pro eyes located elsewhere to interpret.

I will probably get one - Products have always worked great for me, and the one time I needed to replace a "water proof" watch, they gave me new right there in the store.
