Telling people they've got to shell out at least $349 for a watch is a big ask, particularly when they also have to pony up for an iPhone to pair it with. (The Apple Watch will work with the iPhone 5 and later, so if you've already got compatible hardware at least that's a cost you've already borne.) Before I saw the Apple Watch in action, I would have said that's almost too steep a price to pay. Having now strapped one to my wrist and seen how the controls work, though, I think it's a pretty compelling device that could become even more so as more information about the watch comes to light. And that's coming from a guy who doesn't wear watches.
