No I don't need it, but you better believe I stayed up late to order one.
Every review I read (and I spent an entire day reading every review I could find), said pretty Mich the same thing: Apple has created something amazing with a lot of potential, but you probably shouldn't get one.
I agree, but I choose to get one anyways because I think the potential is already there and I have a pretty good idea of what I'll be able to do based on how much love enjoyed using my Moto 360.
The Apple Watch is going to have some hiccups sure, its essentially a beta product, so I know there's going to be some rough patches. I'm still getting one though, not because I'm a fan of Apple or because I'm a tech lover, but because Apple has a proven track record of giving us products that keep getting more and more amazing over time.
I'm not that crazy though, I went with the Sport Edition.
