The fact Apple Watch works with only Apple products is by design. Working across multiple operating systems isn't necessarily an advantage as it causes fragmentation, app, and support issues.Depends on cost. Folks might go for this if it is more affordable and has enough functionality. Plus, the app works across mobile operating systems unlike Apple Watch.
Not only that but if you want to buy a new phone and already have an Apple Watch, it's a big motivation to buy another iPhone.The fact Apple Watch works with only Apple products is by design.

It's kind of why Apple is so successful today.
Not implying they are a leader in anything. A lot of people bash the Apple Watch because it's not round, and round watches are apparently better (so they claim). Therefore, they should also be disappointed in the FitBit watch since it's also not round.And this changes what? You seem to imply that Fitbit is a fashion or technology leader.
Nice looking although I prefer the rugged outdoor look better. The price is right that's for sure. Did not see anything about water resistance. I know from experience, Fitbit's of the past were not waterproof, that's why I went with the Garmin Fenix 3.
And Apple isn't doing it to screw people. They do it because it's the best way. I can't tell you how many issues I have getting everything working right on my work PC. I STILL can't get the HDMI to work to my monitor through the Dell docking station. IT is stumped too.Not only that but if you want to buy a new phone and already have an Apple Watch, it's a big motivation to buy another iPhone.
I agree that when the square LCD screen is fully viewable with a light colored image (like in that Yoga picture on the watch) that it looks like you say (it was also the first thing I noticed). I don't own an Apple Watch so I went to their website to see if their watch also looked the same. I couldn't actually find any image on Apple's website that showed this - they carefully make sure to only show black backgrounds so you don't notice it. I'm guessing you might not have made your comment if FitBit didn't show the watch face with that Yoga picture.Wow, that is one dorky looking watch. It looks out of proportion to the band, too square with far too much of a frame around the active screen. It kind of has a 1950's tv set look to it - big square with a small screen - and that's not a compliment.
