If people want to wear it they will wear it and use it everyday if it's not worth it to them then they won't. I think the numbers speak for themselves here. I personally were my everyday but I understand how some people would ditch it. You can't convince someone why they should or shouldn't wear and use something that they bought. If it's a great product the people will want it and use it all the time. It doesn't seem to be that type of product right now. Maybe second gen or later will get better user results. Maybe it will just never catch on. Only time will tell. "pun intended"

It's has been catching on and based on what watch os 2 offers, it's getter better and it means wearables will eventually be better. To me, with Mose of these flaws that involve me, it's not too much to deal with and it does a decent job for its main purposes.

I am still wearing my Apple iWatch. I love it and it's functionality. I have never encountered a problem with battery life and find it always still in the green when I go to sleep at night. I do regret that more Apps have yet to give me the full functionality that FB Messenger and iMessage give. But that is their loss. I use those Apps less. Not the watch. Step up or get out of the game in my opinion.

If my phone dies, watch is useless. I still have NO CLUE how to connect my health app to watch and I'm pretty tech savvy.
