Watches - another passion of ours, it seems...post your pics! - Page 642

post #9616 of 9630

 

 

Here's the Apple Watch (42mm version) - not sure if I will purchase one - I will say that no matter what, the sport band feels very comfortable and the watch feels great.  Also, the band can be changed out to third-party bands easily.  The 38mm sized version is just too small for me, but should fit children or people that have small wrists with no problem.

 

Here's the demo version (42mm version) on my wrist:

 

Apple Watch - Sport Band version

 

 

Apple Watch - Stainless Steel Band version

 

With magnetic closure

I have little interest in the first gen Apple Watch but I might keep an eye out for the first revision.

What's up my friend!  Have you tried it on yet?  If you are able to, I'd like to read your thoughts about how the sport, leather, and/or stainless steel band feels on you.

The magnetic band is really something to try.  The magnetic portion of the band is actually really strong, so no issues with the watch possibly falling off or something to that effect.

 

 


 

 

Wearing this today:

 

 

Going to be installing some new HID bulbs in my car (http://www.theretrofitsource.com/components/bulbs/d2s-osram-xenarc-66240-cbi-49203.html#.VTYXkSFViko), as I want the best light output that I could purchase, and these are the "Rolls Royce" of the HID bulbs that can be purchased.  I don't want to wear my nicer G-Shocks whilst installing the bulbs.

 

As for the watch, they do not sell it in the U.S., it has a carbon fiber band (looks like carbon fiber as well!) and purchased because I thought it looked different enough from my other G-Shocks.  To tell you the truth, I wear this one the least out of all of the G-Shocks I wear, mainly because it has an elastic band loop that slips too easily.  Also, it looks kind of plain to me.  Glad that it is a really exclusive watch, though - at least in the U.S.

I stopped into the Apple Store to get a demo but there was a 25 minute wait so I didn't bother. I did play around with their locked displays and it has a very smooth feel but could be a tad sluggish at times. I can't say anything about the bands since I haven't worn one yet. I'll probably end up borrowing a co-worker's Watch to see how it feels.

Ah okay...well let me know how it feels when you get to try it on.  Try the stainless steel model on if you can as well.  The absence of a watch loop is very interesting!

Sure thing, here are the glass carbon fiber band pics:

 

 

The band says "Glass Fiber Insert Construction"

Wow! Wonder if that band can be ordered by itself...
