There are times and occasions where I don't need maximum input saturation, and would instead appreciate some form over function. It wouldn't be a first for Apple. Choice is all I'm sayin'.

I don't understand the either or mentality. 'There can be only one'. That's just ridiculous. Chevrolet makes the Suburban and the Corvette. A buyer has a choice.

There is no doubt in my mind that if Apple made a round Watch it would sell well. My guess is Apple doesn't want to be seen as 'me too'. A round Watch doesn't have to be every bit as efficient as a rectangular Watch.

Almost every Apple product makes a compromise in choice compared to the competition, as to form and function. Sometimes some manufacturers follow suit, sometimes they don't.

Sister, you are indeed preaching to the choir along with everything else you said! Looks like just you and me against the world!

I use the Simple face a lot, because it


really nice. Another nice face would be a


Simple face that actually compliments the Watch's current shape, without paying the big $$.

I won't give up hope!
