    It requires that you get a data plan phone plan at 10.00+ per month in America. The carrier you choose for your watch must be the same as the carrier you have for your phone

    I really like it too.

    I consider it an accent, a highlight and a differentiator. Plus red is my favourite colour. We have a white gloss modern kitchen, with red accents on the splash backs.

    Does anybody know yet if the apps will be able to update info over LTE? I'm just curious how the SDK is for this. I'm hoping all apps will be able to take advantage of LTE and not just Apple apps.

    I'm thinking that streaming stuff to the watch will be the next big thing.

    Why is the digital crown red, though? Couldn't they pick a better color? Red doesn't go well with everything

    It only requires that if you want to use LTE. If you want a steel watch, but don't want to pay for an LTE 'plan', just don't sign up for one.

    Think of it as a Bindi and they were very popular for even nonbelievers.

    The red dot will be a signal that you have money, just like the Hermes leather straps. And where was the carping about the black dot on the original models? Why black?

    Go to an auto paint store and buy a touch-up paint bottle and carefully dab the color of choice to the red dot. Problem solved.

    They do admire Leica after all.

    Many people are already paying a premium for features they don't want and/or cannot use where they live. Apple Pay hardware springs to mind. And many of us bought cellular enabled iPads just for the GPS.

    Such is life in the Apple fast lane.

    However, people should have a choice about the red dot :D

    Red dot: booooo!!!!

    I like the space black + link because it’s 100% black! Full stealth. Now I have this ugly red dot drawing attention which is the last thing I want. I want 100% black!!!

    I like my jet black phone because of how dark and stealthy it is. I want my devices to be discreet and out of the way and not draw attention.

    Can anyone confirm that having an LTE model without having cellular connectivity enabled isn't a problem? (no bugging "no sim card", "no cellular connectivity" messages, etc.)

    I want to purchase a SS model but i live in a country with no LTE support for Apple Watch.
