    I'm an apple whore for sure. Absolutely hate the look of the watch. Thought it was ugly in the pics. Thought it was even uglier after my try on appointment today. Would definitely not wear it if it was simply a watch. But still thinking of getting it.. Anyone else in this predicament? Obviously my opinion is very subjective, I just much prefer the style of something like the LG G Watch R.

    Huh? This is probably the most bizarre thread I've ever seen.

    C'mon, people are just trying to get more creative with topics until 4/24. Give 'em a break.

    Lol I'm being dead serious. I want the watch for the features and because I like apple products. But I absolutely hate the way it looks.

    I don't think I would buy a watch I hated the looks of, regardless of its functionality. Maybe wait for Android Wear to be compatible with iOS and get one of those?

    Was thinking about this as I read that they might introduce the functionality in the near future. Unfortunately it probably wouldn't work as great within the ecosystem or have the same developer support as the apple watch

    I'm be opposite. I don't even think any smart 'watch' should be called a watch. They aren't watches. They are mobile phone companions with limited ability that happen to be worn on the wrist and tell time.

    If you look at any of them as watch, then I think you're looking at the product completely wrong,

    That's a great point and part of the reason I'm most likely still getting it. But its like buying a pair of glasses. You need/want the functionality they give you but you don't want to wear a pair that make u look unattractive (in your opinion). Same concept with the watch

    There's a reason it's called a watch.

    Because it's worn on the wrist. So are bucklers, sweat bands, bracelets etc.

    Watch is a convenient term but that's not what the product really is and shouldn't be thought of and compared to pure watches.

    ----------

    My glasses don't determine how attractive women find me. I can overcome any bad glasses frame choice. ;)

    It's funny you used this analogy as I just had an eye doc visit this morning and bought new glasses.

    They could easily call it Apple Mini iPad, or Apple Maxi iPhone Remote, but instead, they called it Apple Watch because it's a watch, duh.

    Seriously, no need to overdramatize the watch concept.

    I think you misunderstood me. My point was when you buy a pair of glasses you choose the ones you think you look good in. If there were only one style of corrective glasses in the world and you thought they were ugly you still might begrudgingly wear them because you want the functionality. Begrudgingly being the key word.

    Edit: actually after rereading your comment I don't think you is understood me at all. The sarcasm flew right over my head lol.

    From my perspective it's about as plain and neutral as any watch I've seen. It's as though an entry level designer created it. That's not bad, it's just not much of anything.

    They nailed it, just look at the predicted numbers SOLD already. Bland is often a good safe way to go. Nothing to complain about or compare to. An approach that has made consumers open their wallets, an Apple specialty... :)

    My point is it's not really a watch- that's not its primary function any more then your phones primary function is to tell time. It's a different product.

    ----------

    That's a good point. The Moto 360 looks like a traditional watch, but it's huge. I like the Apple watch design and shockingly- it's a rounded rectangle.

    It's official, we are running out of thread topics before the 24th.

    Let's hope someone releases a review or good unboxing between now and then just to give us something interesting to talk about. :p

    Yep, it looks bulky and not attractive. But I have held out updating my garmin 310xt for over 2 years. I drank the kool-aid and I am in. I went with the 42 grey sport with black band just so I can make it a year until the gen 2 comes out with a slimmer look and better battery.

    I wouldn't buy any Apple product if I thought it was ugly or not use to me. There are plenty Apple products that are not use to me and I have no intenition of buying them. Personaly I think Apple Watch is beautiful.

    I like the look, if I didn't I would not have ordered. Hard to wear something you don't like.

    I feel, with apple, sometimes you just accept the physical design. Like with the iphone 6(s) after the iphone 4, where everybody broke a screen, or the back glass, which took such little effort. But the apple watch pulls a lot of design from the iphone 6 as in bubble screen, and completely rounded... everything, which IMO, is questionable. Though, after trying it on, I see how the Apple watch is a device with MANY faces, in the scene every photo seems different, as well as totally different in person, which sold me.

    If the (LG G Watch R) had every feature you can think of with 5 years battery life with an always on screen (digital information shown) I wouldn't buy it.........so to answer your question YOU shouldn't buy the Apple Watch if you think its ugly.

    If you think the Apple Watch is ugly thats perfectly fine. I look at every other smartwatch and think they are the ugliest watches ever made, my opinion only. I also don't think much of the Alu Apple watches but thats just my opinion.

    If I thought the Apple Watch was ugly I wouldn't wear it, bought the SS with Link as its the only one I like.
