Is it still too late to buy the Apple Watch? Or should i wait for Watch2?
There are new stating the Watch 2 will be out late in 2nd quarter of 2016. Theoretically means left around 6-7 mths left before it's out.

So if you can wait that long, just wait. Else, get the current model. Though 1st gen, it's a real technical marvel of a smartwatch!

my sis in law is working in Apple HQ so she can get at good price.. tempting.. I played with her Apple Watch before but didn't fancy it at first. I think it will be good when i wear it for my run and gym (measure HB rate etc).

I'm always wearing mechanical watches and I'm worried when i start to wear the Apple Watch, my other watches will get practically 0 wrist time except when attending functions.

Well it's like that. Ever since I got mine in July this year, I totally never wear my G-Shocks, Seiko, TAG and Rolex for around 3 mths. Sometimes I felt really guilty neglecting them but recently also started wearing my mechanicals again, but seldom too.

The AW is such a fantastic watch to wear and I mainly wear it for notifications and activity monitoring and neglecting it for a day disrupts the flow. But I only wear it when I'm out so sometimes on weekends when I'm home I don't wear it.

same here. i do miss the haptic feel whenever notifications come in.

last sunday, did not wear the AW out. felt so lost, like something missing.

it's a good notification device though price is a tad expensive.

Alternatively you can wear the AW on one side and the other watch on the other side. But then, it looks weird.

So far the AW is the most expensive smartwatch to date but it's also the most good-looking amd most functional too.

Don't really like it. One of the better android-powered smartwatches are Samsung Gear series, but still, no fight to Apple's.

My alternative would be the Pebble Steel. (not the pebble time)

On a separate note, i realised that even m1 is selling the watch now. Saw it on m1 website. Not sure about other telcos as i didnt check.

I think smartwatch apps needed to be improved in a sense being native. Certain apps which are great for the phones should be added to smartwatches too.

Guess now it's still an 'experimental' period.

The Apple Watch Edition is the most expensive smartwatch...The Tag Heur smartwatch is the next most expensive smartwatch followed by a tie between Huawei Watch and Apple Watch...

I was referring the AW in general to be the most expensive of all the smartwatches instead.

No. Apple Watch already have the function to reply directly to whatsapp notifications. What i want to know is can anyone change the default messages and it works with the quick reply for whatsapp
Sorry, I'm thinking of getting one. Means I can't text out?

I can only reply to notifications?
