    I just bought a Moto 360 and boy what a mistake i made.:confused: I hear people complaining about the Apple Watch not being round and being too bulky.. But man this watch is thicker than my iPod Touch 5 Gen... :eek:

    I had been in the market for a larger-faced watch. So when I saw this thing announced, I was excited. Now that I own one, I couldn't be happier. Sorry you're not enjoying yours. Hopefully you still have your receipt.

    I actually thought it was going to look thicker based on pictures. The first time I saw it at best buy, I was surprised b.c it was thinner than I expected :)

    Have you owned any prior smart watches? Do you normally wear a watch? I use to only wear very thin leather strap watches. My first watch was a pebble and it felt huge, at first. Now that I have had it for nearly 2 years, it just feels right. That could also be why it feels large. Side note, I have very small wrist.

    No, this is my first smart watch and my wrist is as small as it get.. This thing just look way too big on my wrist.. Don't get me wrong i like the way it look and much of its functionalities. I wish it was a lot thinner and maybe a lil bit smaller.:confused:

    Let's see, there is a Qi wireless charging coil, battery, touch sensors and electronics, frame and lens/display. How thin do you think it should be?

    Clearly, you have not looked at enough traditional watches.

    But, if it is too big for you, then it is too big.

    Gotcha. If you don't need a touchscreen and just need notifications give pebble a look.

    Do we know how thin the Apple Watch is? The Moto360 is 11.5mm thick. Are we thinking the AW will be iPhone 6 thin?

    Looks very thick to me, I doubt it will be iPhone 6 thin or even close. Who knows though, maybe the models they used were just small.

    I looked at the Moto 360, but I'm waiting for the LG G Watch R at this point. I just like the design better.
