    I love Apple.

    I have many Apple Products and have been a huge fan for years.

    Was SO excited to get Apple Watch!

    I wore watches everyday so I was already use to the idea :)

    You guys this thing is so freaking uncomfortable and useless.

    Its a glorified notification center... thats all. But most of all, its super uncomfortable to wear all day.

    When I come home the first thing I do is take the thing off and throw it on my desk. Its in my drawer right now.


    The Hype on this one is way greater than the actual product.

    I have the 42MM Sport

    Planning on selling it locally. Maybe in a few years they will have one thats thinner and not as uncomfortable to wear.

    My 38mm Milanese is comfy. I like it.

    That's the beauty of the free market. Not everyone likes the same things.

    Me, I expected it to be a companion to the iPhone. What, with the company describing it as such and all. ;)

    OP is mad because no one texts or calls OP. OP only gets notifications from games reminding him to harvest his plants.

    Sorry for your luck. I just got one today. I lik it so far but I don't think I'll kick it to the curb quite so fast.

    That's a little harsh but I do agree it's a glorified notifcation center in its current form. I had no problem with discomfort while wearing The watch. I do think it needs to be thinner and cheaper though.

    I'm curious, what kind of watches were you wearing prior to your Apple watch? I'm trying to understand what made you feel the AW being so uncomfortable. Was it the weight or the size/thickness?

    Hi, welcome to smartwatches. What were you expecting?

    what problem are you having with it being comfortable. I have the SS with classic band, and it feels like a watch...

    OP is bummed cause he misunderstood and thought it had a "faptic" engine.

    Everyone's giving you a lot of crap here. But I'd like to know why you don't find it comfortable.

    I love it, sport band is the most comfortable band I have ever worn hands down. I absolutely have no regrets getting this watch. I kickstarted the Pebble watch and this watch blows the pebble out of the water.

    My observation:

    After reading many posts, I've noticed a trend. Not sure if theres any real correlation, but I'll state my thoughts anyway.

    Seems like the ones saying the Apple watch is "too thick" "too heavy" "not comfortable" are users with a 42mm watch.

    Seems to me, you might have been better off with a 38mm.

    Especially since every review states the EXACT opposite.

    Instead of saying "cool story" or whatever, how about just ignoring these kinds of threads if you're enjoying your watch. It just seems silly to insult the OP or make jokes because he/she has a different opinion.

    But I will say this -- why don't need to know that you're getting rid of your watch. Threads like these never turn out good.

    This reminds me of comments I heard--and ended up making myself--about the Microsoft Band, which I kept for a few weeks before selling, figuring I'd just get an AW in the upcoming year. Have you worn it continuously? With the Band, I ended up wearing it for a couple of days, then not as I was go My back and forth over whether to keep it.

    It's a bit heavier than other watches in the hand, but one I actually strap it on, it's fine. What about it isn't comfortable? If it's the notifications, you can cut them down by disabling notifications from certain apps.

    Apple doesn't make bands for 400mm wrist sizes so tHe Apple bands are cutting off OP's circulation to his hand.

    STOP WITH THE THIN-NESS CRAP. Has apple brainwashed you with their inexhaustible search for less width? The watch is tiny and light. Let's leave it the same size and just pack more battery and features in.

    Man, too thick doesn't even cross my mind. :mad:
