It’s almost been a whole week since the widely anticipated Apple Watch went on sale around the world and the reaction has been overwhelmingly gaga.
In fact, prices of the gadget on auction site eBay have been constantly climbing as potential customers are outbidding each other to get their hands on the new smartwatch.
From $460 to $1,400, Apple fans are ready to bust open their wallets for the latest tech toy. However, is it really worth it?
It might be – let's remember this is revolutionary technology that wraps a computer around your wrist. Still, many generations will follow and one day, just like the iPhone – most likely next year – it’ll become obsolete.
Why not, instead, invest the same amount of money in something that’s timeless – a technology that will never go out of date?
Here are just a few of the smart choices you can go for:
