Great. Get ready to get another one soon.
This is an American thing. You guys there are the ones that have to buy anything shiny with an apple logo.
What I'm saying is most of the world has Android. Android smart watches are a LOT cheaper and out here outside the USA nobody is walking around with a smart watch. I remember when Samsung Wear came. People looked at it at the store and kept walking. I have never seen anyone with a Samsung smart watch. And everyone and their mother here has a Samsung phone.
I know Americans are very insular. So I don't blame you for thinking the USA is the whole world, but I just want to clarify, the Apple Watch isn't going to kill the watch industry. Not even close.
First they will have to put an iPhone in the hands of everyone in the world and then convince them they need to spend another $500-$700 on an iPhone accesory.
We out here in the world pay CASH full RETAIL for iPhones. We don't get iPhones for almost free on contract. We pay $800+ for iPhones here.
And people out here live in $500 a month. That's their salary. It is tough to tell someone who has to take a bank loan out to buy an iPhone (and that's what they do here. 0% 10 months), to now pay more and get another loan for a watch that basically just gives you notifications.
There were 1.2 Billion watches sold in 2014. Regular watches.
You tell me how the Apple watch or android watches are going to kill that industry any time soon.
The only way I see the Apple Watch selling in big volumes is if everyone in China gets one. Since they make everything, including apple devices, they have the money to buy these things.
But then that means the Chinese. There are still plenty of countries around the world that Will buy regular watches.
