Poll: Which Apple Watch Configuration Did You Order?


Deciding on an Apple Watch leading up to last night’s mad dash was a sport in itself, ever since April 10 was revealed as the day to pre-order.

Many of us have flip-flopped and changed our minds over the past few weeks, as we learned more about the smartwatch. But with the huge swath of Apple Watch press reviews published this week, that probably was the final nail in the coffin for buyers.

Our ‘mega poll’ back in March revealed the 42mm Apple Watch Sport in Space Grey as the most popular choice. And it appears that may have also been the case yesterday.

Well, now that the pre-order has arrived, it’s time to vote again in our new poll below: which Apple Watch configuration did you order?


  • Tim M

    none. because $350 for a watch is ridiculous

  • Shawn

    It’s 450!

  • johnnygoodface

    … and it’s not a “watch” anymore, it’s a computer

  • D

    No love for the leather loop apparently!

  • Flash

    In what world? A decent watch costs that much easily. Comments like these are useless and should always be followed by – In my opinion this watch is too much for me….anyone who has watched beyond their digital ironman they get at an outlet mall for $35 will be using this for fashion and convenience.

  • Jer

    I spent over $300 on a Nixon watch once so this isn’t that bad and my Nixon watch was only good for telling time and cosmeticly looking nice with parts made of mahogany wood.
    I’d say spending more than $800 for this watch is not worth it.

  • Al

    Tech reviewers say it’s not really worth it and that it has practicality and usability issues. Fashion designers say it doesn’t cut it as a fashion item. It’s going to be outdated faster than any watch in history. What more proof do you need that this is an over priced accessory for your phone?

    Wait a minute, fashion designers love the Apple Watch, it’s only the group of 3-4 fashion bloggers we’ve seen on The Verge video (if I remember) that did not like it. We saw Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour at Apple unveilings and they are making the cover of fashion magazines that have far more influence than those bloggers. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but let’s not try to say that this Watch is useless as many people like it and bought it. I prefer spending 500$ on a watch that actually does a lot of things for me than to spend 300$ on one that only tells me time and that is probably going to break after a year.

  • Al

    There were just a bunch of top designers, given the royal treatment by Apple to show up to this thing, and stand around and smile. Have you come across any solid, useful, forward looking quotes from those people?

    Some of us geeks just wanted to throw money at Apple to play with this toy. Nothing more.

    In what world is a $300 watch going to break in a year? Don’t say ridiculous stuff.

    In what world is a $500 “watch” going to become obsolete in a year? This one.

    You know, deep down, it’s a mistake to buy this watch (unless you have money to burn). You’re just trying to justify the foolish expense to yourself.

    nada. 520$ + 15% taxes in Quebec is way too much for me

  • OliChabot

    It’s a piece of fashion the same way a gold chain or a Hermes handbag is. The difference is that it is also a technology hardware that does offer more than simply being appealing to the eye. I just don’t understand why people don’t mind seeing people spend thousands of dollars on a luxury necklace, purse, wallet of whatever, but when it comes to buying the Apple Watch, it’s complete nonsense.I don’t believe this watch is earth-shaking, but I do believe it has a market for it and that it will sell.

  • It’s funny that the only people commenting are the people NOT buying the watch. A little jealous? 😛 Actually, I’m not buying it either. haha. I haven’t worn a watch since 2007, when I got my first smartphone (iPhone, of course. :P). Apple Watch doesn’t make we want to start wearing one now. My opinion is this: I like using my iPhone. I’d rather use the large screen of my phone than the tiny screen on a watch. That’s just me. 🙂

  • Yep you called it Mike 😉

  • Al

    It’s a clunky square, excessively thick box sitting atop your wrist. That is NOT fashion. Adding some colour and a variety of exceedingly basic to extravagant wrist straps is nothing more than trying to put lipstick on a pig. You absolutely CANNOT compare this to those actual fashion products that you mentioned.

    You’re deluding yourself with nonsense in order to justify your purchase.

    In a few months the “Apple Watch” will turn into the “Apple What?”
    (until Apple eventually get’s it right… assuming they ever do)

  • Al

    It’s not that either. It’s an accessory to the computer in your pocket… like a remote touch-screen monitor.

    Welcome to Quebec ;)!
