    I don't agree with all these UI specialists' statements like "since Apple made iOS so flat, everything else needs to be flat." It's not the case for Mac OS. There's plenty of volume and layering in iOS. On the watch, things like badges and emoji faces need to have that 'nostalgic' feeling, it's what makes it fun to use. It's also first version, give Apple some time to get proper feedback from millions of users. Mob of angry designers or UI designers never drove Apple anywhere.

    So hard to judge until you see or use it in the flesh.. But what is a Monday without some light hearted judging?

    I don't like it. The watch really doesn't do it for me.

    The heartbeat transmitter is pretty much the first project any 1st semester interaction design student makes, so I guess it was just a matter of time before we saw a commercialised version

    So many amazing ideas! That ugly stick doe.

    Interested to know if I am the only one that thinks the watch UI is wildly inconsistent with both itself and the rest of the iOS stable?I feel like some elements are beautiful and flat (notifications, general interface), some are half baked (that whole fitness section), and then for some they've just completely 180'ed on flat design.

    When you press two fingers on the screen, the built-in heart rate sensor records and sends your heartbeat. It’s a simple and intimate way to tell someone how you feel.

    Uhhh.

    It's a shame the watch itself is so hideous because the software has some pretty cool ideas. Apart from the strange UI, of course.

    I don't doubt this will sell like butter since there must be a polished Apple logo somewhere, but it is (the design) so ancient compared to other "smartwatches" on the market.
