I bought an Apple Watch, and I've been wearing it for about two weeks. I'm a notorious mobile computing fanatic and early adopter. How does it hold up to real-world use? How does it compare to the hype?

Let's get this out of the way: I've been waiting for an Apple Watch for a long time. While a lot of people were quick to dismiss the whole idea, I've been on board with the idea of a wrist-mounted companion to a smartphone since I first started using a smartphone. I never bought a Pebble or any of the other first generation smart watches, largely because I've been around the block long enough to know that it's hard to be an early adopter, but partially because I wanted to wait and see what Apple would come up with.

"Disappointed about the apps not being removable esp the stocks. I only ever see them by accident on my company iPhone. I am NOT repeat NOT interested in Stock prices. I'd fully expect that most women with a watch wouldn't be interested either.

Considering 25% of the western population own public stock, and Apple users clearly have money and are probably even stocked up, "most" is a bit harsh.

Doubt it. Only 1%'ers are not in debt.
