    So whats the deal, tried googling it but all you get is clickbait articles and blogs. Can you actually change the bands yourself? ie get the middle model one 42mm (which from my reading has the sapphire glass and stainless steel body) then change the band out to something you prefer (aka stainless steel or leather)

    Yep, you can indeed mix and match straps between straps of the same size. 42mm isn't interchangeable with 38mm for obvious reasons.

    Ah ok cool. Now just to find out how long it will take before work bans them for being an electronic device.

    That kind of ban is a decent part of the reason I want one. I always feel super naughty pulling the phone out at work. If I can check on my wrist subtly and then turn off the screen I'll be happy.

    Well any terminal has a blanket ban on any electronic device being turned on in the terminal (other then designated areas aka meal room) and work its an instant sacking getting caught using an electronic device whilst not on break.

    Apple iWatch


    Ours is nothing like that level of an offence. Someone just puts up a print out of the phone policy every year or so saying mobiles should be in lockers unless on breaks. Everyone complies for about a week then ignores it till the next time.

    The watch will just make me feel less obvious about ignoring it haha.

    Pretty sure I just got the okay from the missus to buy a 38mm black sport and a 42mm black sport. Woo!

    You'd think they'd have learnt from the U2 fiasco; I don't want the Watch app on my phone - and they sure as hell shouldn't have made it so you can't delete the bloody thing.

    I don't want stocks or weather or reminders or their shitty podcast app etc. But I just put them in a folder on the last page and forget they're there.

    Easy.

    Why bitch and moan about it?

    I have 26 Apps on my main screen, including Messaging, Phone etc.

    I have 24 in my "crap" folder.

    That's the issue.

    Surely they'd already have a policy on smartwatches and fitness trackers? It's not like the Apple Watch is the first one to come along, every journalist and their dog is quick off the mark to remind people of that at the moment.

    They probably do, but will have to investigate.

    That being said, when they have to put posters up telling drivers (from other companies) to not piss and shit in the loading bays and to use the toliets provided says alot.

    Reviews are largely positive, and we already knew it was overpriced.

    The overall feeling is positive towards the device, of course not all feel this way.

    Its odd that they dont think a short battery life is a big issue.
    Thats one of the biggest reasons why its not worth buying.

    If i had to charge my watch every night with my phone i would be annoyed.

    It is really annoying when you go somewhere, if I take my 360 with me to a mates house and crash the night, it's dead in the morning.

    Will be interesting how these devices tackle the battery issue.
