    This iWatch is just as ugly as the square Android watches. WTF Apple? I miss Steve.

    I would'nt be so bad without the crown and having to use the crown to control functions seems a step backwards.

    Its not ugly at all and looks beautiful. I'll be getting one to replace my Pebble smart watch.

    Looks worse than the Gear by far.

    That is an ugly watch, but get used to it as many will be sporting these Honkers!

    NOT me!

    I wouldn't say it's an ugly watch because it follows the form of a watch aesthetically. A metal surround, a crown and a strap is what you should expect isn't it?

    It's ugly. Just because it's in the general shape of a watch, doesn't excuse how hideous it looks. Looks like the Swiss have no worries afterall...

    I agree. I think this looks much better.

    It's ugly in your opinion I think. I have no intension of getting it, I'm just a watch collector giving his two pence. I am happy with my Swiss watch and see nothing hideous about the iWatch. It looks like a watch which to me means it fits the bill.

    95% of how it looks will depend on the band.

    Kind of like how the iPhone face is all about showing off the app you're using.

    I'm kind of surprised too but this is probably the smartest move. Unlike with iPhones everyone's Apple Watch will look different.

    That design doesn't look the best, but the stainless steel version with the leather strap probably looks great. This watch is about personalization. There are three versions, multiple colors of each version, and presumably unlimited straps (including the ones you bring yourself).

    Yeah, I don't like the design and have no interest in buying one.

    It's not an interface that is friendly to left handers.

    It looks better than Samsung Galaxy Gear which, unfortunately, doesn't say much. I don't really like it, it looks like iPhone 2G...

    I highly doubt they overlooked this. I'm sure you can simply put the watch on the other way and change a setting.

    They should have priced this @ $199.
    The price is exorbitant for what the product is. It's not really groundbreaking or beautiful in any way.
    It's nice -- mediocre at best. (I'm so getting one on day one, to be honest.) haha.

    Good point. Actually mocking the crown on the wrong side seems easier b.c you can grip the watch. I noticed they said zero about battery life. That is a big concern.

    Umm that is the sporty version. There is a high end version with 18 karat gold. More expensive of course. I love it!
