This has to be more propaganda from Apple, especially when Apple had to clear out most of their stock. As far as the the stainless steel Apple watches packaged with any of the Hermes bands. That was a joke and a half. You pay Apple an extra $700 USD for a Double Tour leather band. Anyone who pays that much money before checking what else is on the market deserves to be burnt by Apple. If they would have went to Amazon or other sites that carry those bands or something very similar, then they would have seen you can get a Double Tour band form Amazon for $25. The other thing is Apples watch is advertised all over the place with its watch face being on all the time. Yet it's watch face is off for most of its life and it gets really crappy battery life.

Do your own research bud lol. We all know apple brags about their actual sales numbers when they think it's impressive enough to do so. With such a loyal and marginally large fanbase, i'm really curious to know how many people actually have these things strapped to their wrists. Do you have one?

"Do your own research bud lol" Translation; You don't have any actual sales numbers for the android wear watches, nor the Gear S2. Yes I have an Apple Watch.

No I don't have sales numbers...obviously no one is doing well in the smartwatch industry except maybe pebble with its cheap looking designs. Until a smartwatch can give me more than a week of battery life with heavy usage i'm not really interested.

Ctdog4748 most likely owns the Apple watch and feels like he has to defend his Apple watch purchase. Even though it has really crappy battery life for a watch that is off most of its life. I bet ctdog4748 is proud to show off his blank faced Apple watch to anyone who asks him. Sorry that was mean, I am sure he is happy to show off the time for the 10 seconds that it is.

90% of watches are round

Circles don't look cheap...they look timeless...elegant... something that can be worn in public and you won't look like a geek while doing it.

Wow, you are blind. Apples watch is really slow. It's watch face is off most of the time with no option to change it. Even Apple rates their own watch with mixed usage of 18hours. All new Android Wear watches can have their watch face's on all the time. Not to mention many OEMs will rate their Android Wear watches in 1-3 days.

First off watch OS 3 has completely changed the speed and experience of the watch. Second, a new version is coming out within a month.

Don't think he got that memo.

Theyre no-life virgin manbabies who devote their time to bashing Apple lol. That says it all. watchOS3 completely kills the competition in regards to speed.

WatchOS 3 is caching more. But it is still slow. Not to mention watchOS 3 is still really restrictive compared to Android Wear. When Apple said that it has native support. What a complete joke that was. As a developer you still have to have an iPhone app if you want to communicate with another device. Access to system resources is still too restrictive. Not to mention other development restrictions. Android Wear allows you to do so many things. As a matter of fact you can take Android code and it will run as is. Naturally you have a smaller screen, and no keyboard input. But Android Wear even uses the same graphics routines. Unordinary if your going to prop up and cut down others. Then you better have facts to back you up. WatchOS 3 sucks compared to Android Wear.

Calls people no life virgins when they bash Apple, and does the same himself on Android articles. What does that make you?

They usually resort to insults when they feel backed into a corner and can no longer justify their reasoning.

Is Android wear still a thing? Be honest now.

Android Wear is way more of a thing than WatchOS.

Nope...it's still just a fad that's in it's infancy...just like the A-watch ;)
