Google "After reading all the reviews, and talking to people who actually wore Glass, I just see a product plagued by bugs, and of questionable use, that's generating a lot of buzz because people want so desperately to have some new gadget to latch onto, and fear being wrong about the next major technology trend." Nobody wants a computer in their home. Nobody wants a cell phone and always be connected. Nobody wants an iPhone. The current version of this line? Nobody wants Glass. "I haven't worn Glass." Oh right.

The question is: how much did you spend on your watch? Most people I know who still wear watches, wear them as status symbols. Thus, I see watch I think they're self important wind bags who only consider aesthetics important.

If your wearing a timex/casio/swatch. Mad props. I stopped wearing one only because I kept breaking them, and got tired of shopping for watches and then having custom bands put on that fit my strangely shaped wrist.

Edit: So I hope you aren't telling us how practical you are with a watch that costs $500+.

I wear a rolex for 9k usd, it has not given me a single problem during 10 years of daily use and it still looks like new. It gets me happy everytime I see it. Best of all it didn't even make a blip in my bank account when I bought it, since I had a good business during that time.

Lame. Don't get me wrong everyone has something that they spend more money than they absolutely need to. But, I won't take any time to brain latencies seriously from someone that does. Expensive watches look terrible to me. I might not hire someone because of an expensive watch worn to an interview ( in combination with other factors obviously, but it would be a negative). Now a casio calculator watch is definitely a plus if it has definite wear signs. A pocket watch with a band made out of duckt tape, well that might just qualify them for a promotion.

About $3 for the current one I like, and $50 for the one the wife bought to smarten me up back in the days when watches were still fine. As long as the battery lasts 3 years, its fine.

I have no use for a $500 watch, I could get some decent hardware for that.
