I'm an Apple gadget crazy. I was up at midnight to preorder an iPhone 5 for delivery on day one, up at midnight to order an iPhone 6 Plus (actually 2) for delivery on day one, so I'll preorder to have an Apple Watch on day one, too.

I still have an Apple II+, and Apple IIgs, a Mac II, the first Mac portable and 2 iPods.

Once you get one Apple device it is normal to gravitate to many more. I work with PCs all day long and they seem to just get poorer and poorer in quality, speed and maintenance requirements. I never thought I would switch to the Mac world but the first device made a believer out of me. I open my Macbook Pro and instantaneously it is ready to go. I have never had to reboot it except to install a software upgrade which is occasional and not once a month. I love my iPad and my iPhone 6+. I use to like tinkering with memory and system upgrades for PCs but that got old fast. When I turn it on I want it to work so I can read my email, surf the net and run the applications I use. My Mac does that every time. If you don't have one you don't know what you are missing. Well worth the added expense and learning curve. If you count the hours you waste messing with PCs and their virus protection you will come out way ahead with a Mac! Enough said. I am an apple-a-holic.

Google " CICRET" all you techno folks. I believe this will make Apple watch redundant absolutely phenomenal once it makes the general public. Take time to watch the video on its abilities! Please pass this around

Have my watch now and love it. I have the 38mm with white sport band. Especially like how my calender is shown. Just by looking at it have time, temp, date, sunrise/sunset time and my events for,the day. Yes, I am able, to read it all. This is my choice. Lots of watch faces and options.

I ordered the 42mm black Sport, the most popular model.

During my lifetime we have gone from no television to 7 inch screens with cathode ray picture tubes and tube!

Then to 14 inch to 26 inch and then wow the the Sony Trintron 36 ich flat cathode ray picture tube (takes 5 grown men to carry it!).

We progress to solid state circuitry.

Then comes the 20 inch flat screen hanging on the wall for a mere $19,000.
Time marches on. Cathode ray tubes give way to 36', 46" 56" 65" and 75" and above flat screen LCD....LED'....

A 65" flat screen TV weighs less than 60 pounds.
Prices are down to less than $500 for a 64 inch screen.

Then comes the iphones....first small and noy medium to too big to put in your pocket....along with iPads....etc....etc...

I waited a long time to have my 70 inch with home theatre.
I have a 30 inch computer monitor and an iPad.

I refuse to regress back to something smaller than when I started this catharsis on screen size.
No I will not be getting a one inch square screen........

It is so nice to be able to ride the technology wave and have so many choices.

I know those who want the watch will enjoy every second it offers (pun intended).

PS...I know I left some items out of the above evolution but it truly is amazing!!
