Apple Watch Edition Alternatives; How Else Can You Spend $10,000 In Meaningful Ways?
Things You Can Buy For $10,000 Instead Of An Apple WatchApple

Apple Watch may well be seen as the "most advanced timepiece ever created," but there are some caveats. Those who are eyeing the entry level Apple Watch worth $349 are being reasonable but those who are considering the high-end Apple Watch Edition starting from $10,000 need to put another thought into it. There's no objection on how you can spend your money, but it's just a reminder of what other things you can do with $10,000 if you settle for alternatives.

We were able to gather quite a few interesting alternatives that cost as much as a single unit of Apple Watch Edition. (via Techno Buffalo, The Verge)

A 2015 Ford Fiesta

You can always go for a brand new 2015 Ford Fiesta and take your family or friends on a road trip. The price of Ford's affordable sedan is $13,965, which is well within the range of buying an Apple Watch that may shoot as high as $17,000.

Pizza everyday for 5 years

If you love pizzas, here's your chance to indulge in the awesomeness for the next five years. But that's possible if you planned on buying the high-end Apple Watch Edition. Each Domino's pizza costs $8.49, so its $3,098 for a year.

28 Apple Watches

If the alternatives aren't as tempting, you can always fulfil your wish for an Apple Watch sans the 18-karat gold. You can buy at least 28 Apple Watch Sports, each of which retails for $349.

20 iPad Air 2s

And if you have a thing for gadgets, you can always pick up 20 of iPad Air 2s and gift it to your friends, family and co-workers. Everyone loves an iPad.

15 Unlocked iPhone 6 smartphones

Apple's successful iPhone 6 smartphone is an even better alternative. And for $10,000, you can buy 15 unlocked iPhone 6 16GB variants.

Full year at Arizona State University

You can put that $10,000 cheque to better use by learning something that won't be outdated as soon as any tech gadget. Pay for a full year of college tuition at Arizona State University or save up for your child's education - a wise decision any day. In state residents currently pay up $9,139 per year in average.

2,300 mocha frappuccinos from Starbucks

You can reserve yourself some great mocha frappuccinos from Starbucks instead of an Apple Watch Edition and a lot of them. More than 2,300 mocha frappuccinos can be bought for the price you may spend on Apple Watch.

Two family vacations

Take some time off and go on a family vacation or two. Plan a trip and for $10K there are plenty of options like round trip cost from New York to London starts at $1,000.

A high-end Mac Pro

You can find more use for a Mac Pro at your home or office than a high-end Apple Watch at your wrist. Of course, the Mac Pro can be useful in many ways than a smartwatch, but it's your choice in the end.

Rolex Datejust, 36mm, steel and yellow gold

If you are hung up on something to compliment your wrist with, why not go for a real watch, not a smartwatch, but just a watch. And if it's a Rolex, the reputation speaks for itself. You can pick a Rolex Datejust, 36mm, steel and yellow gold for the price of Apple Watch Edition and don't worry about the battery running out in a day.

In the end, it's your money and you make the call. If you can actually afford an Apple Watch Edition, there's basically no second thoughts on why must spend it elsewhere.
