Let's deal with this point about consumers who may not be interested in wearing such a watch.

That's my fear.

It looked seriously chunky.

Watches for women seem to be a lot smaller.

I was worried samsung is going to get a market because it has to be so big.

It is not as bad as i feared.

I showed it to my wife.

She thought she would not he able to wear it to work, but she was not horrified by it.

You are not wearing a watch.

I'm not wearing a watch.

There are all kinds of blogs and videos of people posting what they think about it.
