The new ceramic Apple Watch Series 2 comes at a colossal price: $1,250 and up

Sure, we're not talking 10 grand like the gold 'Edition' versions of the watch, but $1,250 for the 38mm model, and $1,300 for the 42mm watch is definitely luxury territory.

The new and undeniably beautiful, creamy white ceramic Apple Watch has all the hallmark features of the Series 2: it's got built-in GPS, it's water resistant at up to 50m, features a dual-core processor, and runs on the latest watchOS 3.

However, at that price, it will definitely find more adoption from more affluent customers. What's a bit puzzling is that default bundle ceramic white with the rather non-premium fluoroleastomer sport band that looks good on it, but does not have that exquisite look one expects at such a high price point.

It's ceramic just like the toilet I sit on... Apple charging top dollar for a toilet watch... They can flush that one!!!

My toilet has superior quality ceramic than this and it's far more useful.

This is pretty much where I draw the line with Apple, miss a few key features that the competition offers but charges well above what the design-feature ratio would justify.

I can buy a military grade quality ceramic capacitor with 5 year warranty for $0.05. At that price point I'd rather but a TAG or Rolex cause 100 years down the line they'll still work.
