Re: Jefferson Graham needs to RTFM
The Watch can do 2 or 3 things on its own, right? I'm sure you can see at least, how long you can hold your breath underwater.

@mak63: and in the end of the test I am sure either you will win or the watch. I think most of us would like the watch to win the competition.

Re: Waterproof matters in Seattle
And how useful could apple watch be if it wasn't water proof like iPhone, I think even lower. I know it is said to be water resistant but how many of the buyers are actually willing to test it that have spent hundreds of dollars. The experiment can be useful but expensive as well

Re: Jefferson Graham needs to RTFM
@Stephane, Although the iPhone is not waterproof, I have heard of a waterproof case for it. I bet it's only a matter of time, before they make waterproof iPhones.

Meh
Call me practical and penny wise but I don't see the point of spending the exorbitant jack on an Apple watch since it has the exact same features as a tablet.  Along with the rest of the population that does not require respiration monitoring (there are other device specific products that do that), the Apple watch is just another overpriced toy.

Waterproof matters in Seattle
'Nuff said... good that it's actually waterproof, at least in the rain. Will be interesting to see what kind of experiences developers will build on top of this. So far I see quite a few useful apps but nothing that changes my paradigm enough to toss my Citizen eco-drive.

Re: Jefferson Graham needs to RTFM
How useful is a water-proof watch if the iPhone isn't?

Re: Jefferson Graham needs to RTFM
I would not take it as a pro rather I consider it is a basic feature. The product which apple watches are replacing are all water proof even though most of them doesn't have any electronics in them but still if I am going to buy an expensive watch I would expect it to facilitate me in a better way not I should start taking care of my watch now.

Cosnumer Reports tested it by submerging it for 30-minutes - worked fine.

Re: Jefferson Graham needs to RTFM
I like that it is waterproof. That is so important, yet I didn't even think about that. The waterproof factor is definitely an important factor when considering the pros and cons of purchasing the Apple Watch. It is definitely a plus on the list of pros.
