    Mmm, I had an MZR-700, recording in Stereo I think it was was pretty good, but ATRAC 33 or 66 (I think it was?) wasn't very good. I do remember the ATRAC modes using less battery though. Used to sit in front of Rage and record off the TV, heh.

    I have been through quite a few MD players and recorders, goodman's was literally the best in sound iq and Sony was the king with netmd recording. Recording from mic/audioin/digital wasn't that good but with netmd it was as good as high end CD players. But biggest thing was no skipping in netmd's (well I didn't have any skip) and my n10 survived being thrown out of car window by my nephew.

    Watch. Watch.

    Already had a pebble, so was already used to this, can read more of emails on this though, rather than just the first few lines. Quite useful for that. Don't sync my work meetings to it, so not quite so useful to me in that regard.

    Yeah, pretty much every time I get the *you've been sitting down for 50 minutes, stand up*, I go and get a drink or take a bathroom break / walk around etc.

    Top right (on left wrist), but haven't tried anything else.

    It's not always that intuitive, but eventually you get the hang of it. It's taken more than a week to train myself how to do some things quickly.

    Honestly, the only way I'd improve the thing is in software. I wore it all last weekend, putting it on 8am Saturday and taking it off at 10pm Sunday with 17% battery remaining (admittedly without using the exercise app which burns battery fast).

    Still heaps of improvements to be made in software, though even buggy third party apps have improved heaps in the last week. (I use the LIFX one to turn on/off lights, and it's finally stable).

    so I won a sport edition :leet:

    seems pretty cool, waiting for the new OS though because it's a bit limited with apps.

    Anyone know if I can stream BT audio to my car and change the album and stuff from my watch ?

    Also, does it do any cool stuff with an apple TV or a Macbook? And how water resistant is it?

    Cut and run Apple, get out now - wearables isn't at the same tipping point that phones and tablets were when you jumped on that gravy train....

    Report suggests the Apple Watch is failing

    No surprise there when Apple made it an 'experience' to buy a watch.
    Stops people from impulse buy... walk into shop and buy one.

    Stupid how you had to get an appointment and fitting.

    5,000 units a day just in the US is still about a $1 Billion a year business. Hardly a failure. Extrapolate that over the world and you'll end up with a really nice business, especially given Apple's usual margins.

    I'ts a strange world where you can create a multi billion dollar a year business our of nothing, with better than 30% margins, and have everyone declare it a failure.

    Not surprising for an unnecessary, overpriced, "me too" product. They probably sold the first batch to the Apple faithful, who would pay any price for a toilet seat used by Steve.

    This, yeah, it's over priced, especially if you don't want it in the first place.

    I find mine really useful, just as I did my moto360, it's nice having notification on my wrist, sending txt messages easily, controlling my music in the car and I think the device looks really nice.

    I really couldn't give a shit how many other people buy one or how many Apple sell, what's that matter really?

    Is this a serious question?

    At the end of the day the product needs to make money.

    No shit, but this thread is talking about the product not it's sales performance, I don't see how it's relevant.

    Not to mention, would you only buy something if it sells millions? If you think something is interesting, get it, if you don't, don't get it.

    I just don't see the point with all the BS talk that goes on these threads, just discuss the device.

    That is why I am subed to this thread, getting a notification just to read that it isn't selling well is pointless information I didn't need.

    sorry mate, sales of the device are relevant to the device and the thread.

    Says you, but how it is relevant exactly? (Serious question) (ie: if something sells bad, does that make it a bad device? does it effect the way it functions?, etc)
