Apple iwatch is knocking out Elite Watches Across The Board, Aug 2015, Apple Tips News.

U.S. watch sales fell the most in seven years in June, one of the first signs Apple Inc.’s watch is eroding demand for traditional timepieces.

Retailers sold $375 million of watches during the month, 11 percent less than in June 2014, according to data from NPD Group. The 14 percent decline in unit sales was the largest since 2008, according to Fred Levin, head of the market researcher’s luxury division. “The Apple Watch is going to gain a significant amount of penetration,” he said Thursday in a phone interview. “The first couple of years will be difficult for watches in fashion categories.” The market for watches that cost less than $1,000 is most at risk, as consumers in that price range have indicated they’re the most likely to buy an Apple Watch, Levin said. Sales of watches costing between $50 and $999 registered drops in June, the biggest being a 24 percent decline in timepieces from $100 to $149.99, according to NPD’s data. (more at source).

How To Save 38% Or More On Your iwatch Purchase, August 2015, Apple Tips News.

Hey guys, I did it. I got the stainless steel magnetic band. And why not right. I went from a sport watch to a metal band one, all for less than $30. US. I bought the metal magnetic band on Ebay. It came from China with free shipping! I cannot see any flaws with it. It slide on my watch like it was made by Apple themselves. Perfect.

My white sport 42 iwatch= $399. US
My metal band size 42= $30. US
Total cost=$429. US
Savings= $270

I went from this white 42 mm sport to the metal 42 below. 

Now this translates into a massive saving since this metal band is being sold by Apple for about $180. US and thats without a watch. 

Also, you can buy this exact watch from Apple, but if you do, it wall cost you $699. US for the exact same watch you see in the photo, except the watch case I have from the sport is aluminum and doesn't scratch as easily as the more expensive stainless steel case. The inside of the watch is exactly the same, the sport, the steel and the gold. Inside is the same.

So I paid $429. US for mine and the same watch (almost same) is being sold by Apple for $699. That means I saved a grand total of $270. US on it. Thats about 38% savings. Guys, I know a lot of fun things I can do with that saved money, don't you? Play it smart, think about this before you buy the more expensive watches. SCW

I went from this to this for only $30 US extra.

Apple watch Fails The Drop Test, So...Don't Drop It, Apple Tips News.

This is the iwatch sport. Its the best priced watch that Apple offers. I really like the rubber belt it has. Even when I work out in the gym doing weights or running, its great. But what happens when you drop it? It breaks, just like most watches out there. So, let me help you by giving you some advice, don't drop it. 

I'm not sure why it breaks so easily, but if you are worried about dropping it, you can buy a rubber jacket on for it for just $2-5 US with free shipping. Just a few dollars invested in a rubber case can save the life of this beautiful watch. SCW
