Apple

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.

Exactly this.

iPod 1 was pretty crappy and full of limitations
iPhone 1 was pretty crappy and full of limitations
iPad 1 was pretty crappy and full of limitations
MacBook air was pretty crappy and full of limitations.

None of those were really worth buying until the second or third gen unless you are a real early adopter, but they all were wildly successful in the end. Of all of them I have the most doubts about the Apple Watch, but I wouldn't discount it yet.
