    I have had my BSS AW3 since first day and I bet I have not actually seen my red dot but a few times.

    Have you changed how you dress so it does not clash with your outfit?:p

    In the end for most it was and still is not an issue. But for some, I am sure it iso_O

    My red dot does not seem to work. I can't get it to do anything :(

    On a tech forum, the red dot may be an issue for some to complain. But in the real world, it's likely not indicative of anything someone would likely have an issue with.

    I don’t ever notice it. My bracelet or my sleeve usually covers it.

    A coworker who I’m in meetings with multiple times a week didn’t know I had the new watch until it was brought up in conversation - clearly the red dot didn’t stick out to her, don’t think it is that noticeable and it may be the people that follow this closely that are on the lookout for it to see if someone has the new watch. I’ve had the watch for well over a month now and no one has really mentioned it.

    Not a single person has noticed mine either. Did not really expect them to. It would take another Apple nut like us to notice. It is US that is not normal!

    No one has noticed the red dot. They're all too busy shaming me for getting aluminum instead of stainless.

    Still don’t understand what the fuss was about with that. It’s there. It doesn’t do anything. I only see it if I’m holding my wrist at certain angles. I don’t even think about it.

    It bothered me in the marketing photos because that photography is so large, bold and colourful. But in real life, the dot is so small and darker than you expect that it’s a non issue.

    I never see it so no big deal. But my wheel does not turn very well. That is a medium deal

    There’s a difference between noticing it and saying something about it.

    I still think its completely unneccessary. Is it the center of my focus during all waking moments? Did it ruin my life? No, of course not. Stupid decision though, IMO.

    Was it you that returned the Ceramic?

    Did you go with something else?

    I returned it as I needed the money towards a deposit. I'll be buying again in a couple of months though hopefully. Just need to sell my Series 2 Hermès deployment buckle and sport to raise some funds.

    I stuck a red dot over the black dot of my Series 0 SS watch, but it keeps falling off...
