All in all if it only were half as thin... it's UNVERALBLE as is

    Ok, some people would buy this, and it might get get faster/more functional...

    but being as thick as it is kills it for me.:confused:

    10.5mm is pretty thin. If you wear any nice mechanical watch it is hard to find one below 10mm.

    Yes, but in the middle, not all the way to the edge, and even then I don't think it's quite as thick as half an inch, maybe like 0,3.

    It's not very thick. But have no fear! Sir Ive will make it thinner as technological advancements allow him to do so.

    10.5mm, dude. That's total, for the case itself. All the G-Shocks I used to wear were in that league, it's no big deal. A mechanical movement watch with self-winding mechanism is going to be similar as well.

    i'm not worried about the thickness.... my current watch is thicker (11.8 mm) and i have absolutley no issues wearing it.

    my current watch weighs 129 grams (well..... maybe a bit less since we did remove a few of the links to fit on my little wrist!) granted, it's all stainless and i'm buying the aluminum apple watch (since if i enjoy wearing it, no doubt i'll want to upgrade next version).

    i guess it's all in what you are used to wearing.

    Just measured my current watch, 7mm at it's thickest point, and it is curved, so it's flush with the wrist.

    It just looks so bulky, and then you have to charge it every-to every other day instead once every or every two years?

    Maybe I just need a new watch and am completely missing the point of the device, but it's super huge compared to anything I'm used to.

    Maybe they wanted the first gen to be UNVERALBLE so the second can be VERABLE as a new feature.
