Rene Ritchie and John Gruber should just get it over with and jack each other off with their watches.

Imagine how many miles the watch would be tricked that they walked while jacking each other off and doing their Sieg Heil Apple salutes.

All kidding aside people who like the watch like it. If they don't like the watch then fair enough.

People like what they like and enjoy their purchase. If they don't like it, they return it or sell it or complain about it.

>In September, Apple claimed watch revenues second only to Rolex.

Link please. Apple doesn't break out watch numbers or revenue so how does Gruber know?

He makes an absolute claim and does fuck all to back it up. I will believe it in heartbeat with some actual data.

Dumb Grub:
"the debut Apple wearable likely brought in around $6 billion.."

Likely.

Stroke! Stroke!:
No numbers, but as a data point a relative was looking for Apple Watch 2 right after Christmas and practically all the stock in the Seattle area was gone. I think there was maybe 1 AW2 with a white band at a Target in Sammamish.


Lots of AW1s in stock.

I expect every runner in America got an AW2 for xmas due to the GPS.
