Re: And about to fall off a cliff

I see Apple is advertising the series 5 Apple Watch on primetime television at the moment (first TV ads I've seen for months). It strikes me that the inexpensive iPhone SE could be largely pitched at people who want an Apple Watch but who currently have an Android phone.

People can and do debate whether an Android or Apple Phone is better, but there is no real contender to the Apple Watch for those who want a smart watch - i.e, wealthy older people who care about their health.
