    After watching the reviews, I'm a bit concerned. Do you think the Apple Watch is too thick?

    It's about twice as thick as I would personally like, yes.

    compared to the seiko analogue watch i'm wearing now, its very close to the same thickness. think the width of the watch face is very close to the same as well (42mm model).

    So for me, not a big deal.

    It wouldn't look so chubby had it had the more traditional lugs sticking out of the case, rather than having bands attach to inside the case.

    Compared to how thin people would prefer it to be I guess.

    Don't worry, there are those who are now, and who have been saying the current thickness is perfect, ideal and how it should be.
    Just like people said how amazingly thin the 1st iPad was.

    In X years time, people will be saying the THEN thinner watch is perfect, and right and how thick and clunky the 1st Apple watch was.

    Just like now iPad air people are saying how horridly thick and heavy the iPad1 was.

    maybe, but I'll like the weight. I hate when things are a bit too light. Makes it feel fragile, empty, fake.

    I like it with a little meat, if you know what I mean.

    I was concerned too. I am currently wearing a Omega Speedmaster Professional which is also 42" diameter, but the case is 14mm. Being the Apple is 10.5, I am actually getting a slimmer watch now! I think it's a matter of what you are using to wearing...

    No. 10mm is not thick at all for a watch. My Breitling is like 18mm thick. I would wager that the vast majority of mechanical watches are over 10mm thick.

    Obviously like others here I've not seen it in person but going by photos and videos in my opinion it's probably thicker then it should be but its not a deal breaker for me.

    It's fat and chubby looking.

    The size is inconsequential when the actual appearance is bloated.

    It's a reflection of J Ive's style preferences. I'm not saying it's a bad design, but I'm a thin person with thin Apple products. Traveling I don't have to carry an overstuffed laptop bag. It's quite nice.

    All Apple needed was a design that would give it some style and get rid of the plain bulbous sides. Yet Jony's in charge and Apple loves him. Besides Apple Devotees never object to anything Apple does.

    It is for my small feminie wrists. I got a much better sense of that today seeing the review photos than I have seeing it on models. It should look fine on my bigger sister in law and on my husband. I might go with the Sport model after all since it is actually and visually lighter.

    I think it looked fine on the wrists of the male reviewers I saw.

    Of course gen 1 is too thick at 10.5mm!! It gives them plenty of room to make it thinner every generation and make a ton of money. Same upgrade path as all of their products.

    Breitling are gorgeous because they are designed with style.

    Apple is fat and happy. :)

    Yes indeed and they'll sell well.

    Eek thats the fugliest looking pic I've seen yet. I knew it was bulky... but I hope that's just a bad angle.
