Is the Apple Watch worth buying?

Here are a few things to consider before buying the Apple Watch in April.

The Apple Watch needs an iPhone to work. Most of the features, such as GPS or wireless calling, on the Apple Watch require an iPhone 5 or later to work. The watch will be basically useless if you own an iPhone 4s or earlier and do not plan on upgrading anytime soon.

The Apple Watch is an extension of your phone. Do you need or want another device to check your email, text messages or the time?

Do you care about about the heart-rate monitor? One of the biggest selling points of the Apple Watch is its health tracking features and ability to use Apple's Health app.

Even though the Apple Watch ships with 8GB of storage, users can only store up 2GB of music and 75MB of photos on the watch itself.
