    The $17,000 gold apple watch with red leather band also had a red dot.

    I don't recall anyone mocking the red dot then....

    Probably because it matched the color of the band. The LTE one in many situations will not.

    I remember plenty of people mocking the gold Apple Watch.

    Because it cost $10,000 for a slow 1st product that'd be outdated in a year, nit because it had a red dot.

    I was joking. Had that band been any other color, I'm sure we would have all been critical of it, too.

    The dot was color keyed to the band; but, it's still a red dot. It was the only watch with a red dot -- until now.

    It was also literally the most expensive gold edition watch..

    I'm not sure of your point. There are lots of expensive things I don't find particularly attractive.

    It's just a normal over reaction. Suddenly we have so many experts on color came on here to educate us that red dot is "hideous monstrosity". It's internet in a nutshell.

    Just don't pay a mind really. Waste of time.

    I don't have an issue with the red dot. I mean, it's different to say the least. And I do think it looks best on the stainless model.
