Did anyone else order the Apple Watch just for the Mickey Mouse face?

    Just joking but going off other threads you would think I was serious just reading the title. I'm sure someone did however and hope it brings joy to the them because it's a small world after all!

    Not just for it, but I have to admit I was rather thrilled to see it as an option. # It'll be my default face.

    I did not even realise it was going to be an official watch face. I thought it was just a demo for the keynote

    In case my screen name didn't give it away. Why yes, yes that was a BIG factor in my decision. I have been missing that Mickey watch face since the days of my iPod Nano.

    Still have my Nano with watchband which has been my Apple Watch up to this point!


    Lucifer666 loves Mickey. This made me smile :)

    I would be cool if you could leave the watch face display on for special occasions even at the expense of the battery but imagine it could get warm.

    The mickey mouse face is creepy. I love me some Mickey mouse, I practically grew up at Disneyland but no, that tapping freaks me out.

    Already got the Mickey Mouse face on my Nano watch for years now. It's only a nice gimmick for the first couple of days.

    (I am a big Disney fan btw, been to all the parks except for Tokyo.)

    How can you not love Mickey?! He still is one of my favorite characters. I wouldn't mind having Mighty Mouse as one of my Watch faces. But that's a whole different topic. I am hoping that Apple will open up the Watch Faces to developers so we can have more options come down the line. But for now, to answer your question yes. This will probably be one of my defaults.

    Aging hippie here . . . think this face was cleverly designed to snare those that never had the first Micky Mouse watch . . . I will not admit that it worked, but I might use the face off and on . . .;)

    Nothing wrong with Mickey although a young Mortimer's foot taping would look better lol Hope they bring out the Goofy backwards face.. now that will confuse people

    I did. I was hooked the second I saw it. Of course, I'm a geek and a gadget lover, so I had to have one, but the Mickey face got me.

    An animated Mickey is one of the three dozen watchface options I keep installed on my LG Watch R, for when the grandkids (or my son-in-law, a big Disney fan) are around:


    I'm sure it'll be a hit with them on the Apple Watch I ordered, as well.

    Kind of.

    It will be my main watch face most of the time. Mainly because I'm a big Disney nerd.

    I've never really liked any of the Disney animated characters. Warner all the way. Bugs Bunny is my spirit animal.

    A nice touch, but the astronomy face and a few others were more appealing, day-to-day for me. Next time I'm at Epcot though, I'll dress accordingly :p

    I did not order the Apple Watch because of it, but it will be my default watch face at first. My small healthy obsession with Disney is a little bigger than my small healthy obsession with Apple is. :D

    The watch case? Nope.

    Like a growing number of other LGWR owners, I removed most of the black coating to reveal the stainless steel body underneath.

    I'm still in the process of using polishing compound to shine it up, although its current slightly brushed look is growing on me, and I'm thinking of getting a matching stainless steel link bracelet like this guy did:


    (Btw, mine looks better than the picture I posted. I used my iPad mini to take it, and it didn't come out very well.)


    Back to Mickey: I can't wait until Apple opens up third party watchfaces. There are so many possibilities, and so many personal preferences and desires.

    For the "most personal device we've made yet", they need to exert less corporate control over its looks. Heck, I think Apple themselves should sell a regular watchband adapter, but the watchband profit they're clearly making from trapped buyers right now makes that less likely all the time.

    Didn't order for Mickey, but I am taking my grandkids on a Disney cruise this summer. I can't wait to see my granddaughter's face when I show her the watch. (That sounded like an Apple commercial didn't it? Or either that I am old!)

    No it wasn't my primary reason or decision maker but no doubt I will use it now and then depending on my mood. I do like Disney but I wouldn't classify myself as a fan.
