Apple's $10,000 question: How to stop Apple Watch from becoming obsolete

Apple enters the high-end watch market with the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition. But CEO Tim Cook stays mum about how to keep the smartwatch relevant a year or two down the line.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'd like to know how there going to keep it from becoming the mark of the beast? I'm just saying... it seems kinda like it could easily be going that route and noone is talking about it.

Updates? give little in the start and plan a few upgrades in the future. You gotta love the pleb Mr. Cook.

What a waste of money

I think people need to take a step back and realize that who cares if it costs $10k? Whoever has the money to put out for this clearly has the money to buy another when it becomes "obsolete". Everyone won't stop talking about the price as if Apple is forcing people to pay the $10k. Technology becomes obsolete everyday, and the Apple Watch Edition is a luxury item that will become obsolete but it will sell out and the second edition will sell out as well.

I think whats a bit unfortunate (though time will tell I guess) is that competitors will come out with smart watches that are as good if not better than the Apple Watch and undoubtedly will be cheaper. And the media and tech world by and large will ignore them.

Those spending 10k+ on a watch are not shopping for an Apple product. Rolex has them beat by a country mile.

Plus in 2 yrs, the Rolex will be worth more than the outdated Apple.

Time to sell AAPL shares, this product is going to TANK.

And to think it doesn't operate at it's fullest unless it's paired with ios. I'd rather buy a used car instead.
