    Looks like Apple is still the only company that can make an aesthetically pleasing smart watch

    $450 for this thing?

    A screen with analog hands on the screen (meaning it gets in the way of your content unless you hold down a button)
    Has a previous gen and low end SoC
    Has no health tracking features
    You can’t swim with it
    No cellular option
    It costs more than a Series 4 Apple Watch.

    This Watch is an embarrassment to LG.

    I'm pretty certain some watches does the reverse, with the screen on top. That is a much better idea.

    NOT Mechanical, it has analog hands. Mechanical alludes to a mechanical watch movement, this is clearly not mechanical.

    This looks great. I love the watch hands idea, and couldn't care less about fitness tracking since I've never used it on WearOS. I love watches that look like watches first.

    Not great. Not horrible either. I wanted this design with the hands integrated in some way to begin with but it looks quite thicc. Could just be perception. Face size doesn't matter. The bigger the screen the better, within reason. The original Galaxy watch (rectangle) was the one of the better designs i feel. Currently have a Galaxy watch 3 Frontier. It's nice. 3 days life. Turned off the stupid cellular. A square screen would have been better. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    Seriously, who is going to want to buy this over a Samsung Galaxy Watch (disclaimer: I bought an SGW last week). It has the disadvantages of those hands in the way, the poor battery life of something that uses WearOS, and did I mention those hands? The SGW is cheaper and way better … the rotating bezel makes life so much easier, and not having WearOS is a win. I absolutely bloody love my SGW.

    This is not a mechanical watch, a mechanical watch is a specific type of timepiece that needs to be wound to keep functioning.
