Apple debuted its Watch on last Wednesday but how many Ameracan are interested to buy the latest product from Apple Inc is the main question here. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, only 69 percent of Americans are not interested in buying the gadget.
However, the survey also showed limited awareness of the watch. The poll was taken after Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook rolled out the product on Monday, and only about half of respondents said they had heard news of the timepiece in the last few days.
Around 13 percent of survey respondents who did not own an iPhone said that they would consider buying one in order to buy an Apple Watch, which needs an iPhone to work fully.
It allows users to check email, listen to music and make phone calls from their wrist. Apple will sell various versions, from a $349 ‘sport' edition (Approx Rs. 22,019) to a $17,000 18-karat gold timepiece (Approx Rs. 6,30,934).

One-quarter of respondents said they were interested in purchasing the Apple Watch, but 69 percent said they had no desire, and 6 percent said they were unsure.
Initial demand for the watch is expected to come primarily from existing iPhone users, but its wider success is seen depending on whether developers create enticing apps tailored to the device, so-called killer apps.
