“Many people are trying to analyze Apple Watch with the assumption that the device is just another luxury watch, only with additional customization and features,” Neil Cybart writes for Above Avalon. “I think this type of thinking misses the big picture.

“The Apple Watch shouldn’t be compared to luxury watches, and more importantly, luxury watch strengths. Timelessness, or lack thereof, seems to be at top of the list of lingering questions about Apple Watch,” Cybart writes. “If a luxury watch can last the test of time and be passed down from generation to generation, how would Apple Watch compete? Who would pay thousands of dollars for a device that won’t stand the test of time?”
Cybart writes, “Timelessness won’t matter for Apple Watch since the Apple Watch isn’t a luxury watch. Instead, Apple Watch is a mobile computing facilitator worn on the wrist.
