One of the tech and fashion world’s hottest topics right now is the Apple Watch. April 24th will bring back a style that has been forgotten with the use of clocks on all of our technology. The Apple Watch, due to its price and the appeal of the company, should appeal to a lot of early adopters and innovators, generally the people that Apple targets.

But there are people that should never, ever, own one. I’ve compiled a list of those people:

People Who Religiously Break Their Phones

Broken Apple iPhoneI’ll bet several friends in your network religiously break their phones. You probably wonder how they manage to do so, or more likely, how they can afford to get the iPhone 6 a hundred times. Or it gets lost, stolen, dropped into the toilet, run over, hacked, cracked, chipped, or thrown. This all happens with a device that can be stored in the pocket. And now they want to put a device that’s out in the open? These people should be given a line they can’t cross at the store. They couldn’t touch the display case without cracking it.

65+

Shouldn't Own Apple WatchIn total, I have personally spent days of my life explaining to an older generation how to click on folders, what a virus is, or the reason behind constantly renaming folders is a 30-second double-click rate. Sound familiar? I hate to pick on your favorite people. Let’s face it, grandparents are the coolest people in the family. They gave you candy when parents wouldn’t, helped you realize the way things really are, and tell the longest stories ever. However, you will be approaching 65 years old after you’ve given the last piece of advice on the Apple Watch to granny. Besides, the last thing they should be doing is reminding themselves of how quickly time is going by. They should be saving their money: you’re their favorite grandchild, right?

Anyone Younger than 18

young girlThere are parents that are thinking about whether their child would want an Apple Watch for Christmas this year. All of those children would probably love to take it to show and tell. Those parents should be asking if they’re ready for their child to be grounded all next year due to slipping grades. The Apple Watch is meant to give notification of upcoming meetings, incoming text messages, etc. In other words, rather than paying attention in school, they’re going to be checking Facebook updates. And I’m sure eventually there will be games. Parents: give your kid a chance.

If you can’t resist your kid just losing their minds on Christmas, buy the Apple Watch.

Phony Techies

Phonie TechieThere are people who have no clue what they’re talking about, but they’ll purchase all the new gear and tell everyone about its features and how cool it is. What they won’t tell you is how they know so much about the product they bought or where their information came from. The information probably doesn’t exist.

I didn’t provide a link for Phony Techies. The Apple Watch will scratch when their arm comes down on their cellphone belts.

  • Nicely written! An Apple Watch? Are you kidding me? I have children who can’t keep their IPOD and Nook from getting cracked. On the bright side, maybe they’ll actually be looking at a watch to make sure they are home on time.

    Hey Austin

    Regarding being 65 and not buying an Apple Watch…..

    I’m 64 plus. Typing this on an iPhone 6+. I own 3 Apple computers, 2 Windows PC with 8.1 OS and touch screen, 2 iPads, 2 iPods and have an Apple Watch on order. I won’t mention the other tech I have.
    My point being…if you should live to get close to 65 or just 60…I hope you don’t put a gun to your head and pull the trigger.
