I’ve begun to notice something odd about the Apple Watch: I don’t see many early adopters wearing it.
Now, before you Apple fanboys and girls accuse me of being a hater, consider this. I own and am a fan of the Watch. (I like the notifications.) But unlike other Apple products, which spread through Silicon Valley circles as fast as assistants can buy them, I don’t see many tech influencers wearing them; that includes those who could get them from Apple for nothing.
I spotted four Apple Watches at Sun Valley beside my own. (Tim Cook’s was one of them.) I saw many more than four brand new MacBook computers—a point I paid particular attention to because I had to borrow a charger and asked everyone I saw if they had a compatible one.
