Apple now allows you to see what your personally designed Apple Watch will look like

Apple now allows you to see what your personally designed Apple Watch will look like
A change to the Apple website allows you to see an image of the watch case, band and watch face of a personally designed Apple Watch before deciding which case and band you want to buy. Apple calls this the Apple Watch Gallery. The choices are so up to date that even the latest band styles are represented in the Gallery. That includes the Woven Nylon bands that Apple introduced during Monday's event.

Apple dropped the starting price of the Apple Watch by $50 to $299 on Monday, and indicated that the device is not only the top selling smartwatch in the world, but is number one in customer satisfaction as well. And with 33% of Apple Watch owners regularly changing the band on their device, the Gallery is a great way to see what a new band will look like on an Apple Watch.

To get to the Apple Watch Gallery, simply click on the sourcelink. Or, you can go to, click on Apple Watch, and you'll see the link to the Gallery. Either way, using the Gallery can help you create the exact look that you want before shelling out your cash to purchase an Apple Watch, or a new band (if that is all you need).

While I hate Apple haters (or any blind hater of any company in general), I must agree with you on the Apple watch sucks part, but I wont agree with the part where you call the ones that bought them idiots

watchOS and the Apple watch dominate the smartwatch market. I understand that you are biased, but normally when something objectively sucks, it isn't the number one sold product in its category. Subjectively, to you, I guess I could agree that you think it sucks. By the way, I have never owned a smartwatch, Apple, Android, Tizen, etc. I'm going by the numbers as reported by International Data Corporation (IDC).

Seriously what made you call me biased? I really want to know because I don't think I am.

If you hold a certain amount prejudice for something, you'd be biased. Instead of giving a reason for why the Apple watch isn't as good as another product, you say it sucks, and then go on to call those that bought a watch idiots and suckers. So ... I mean, sounds like a biased opinion.

And there you have you it I don't hold a certain amount of prejudice toward anything or anyone. I've owned only android phones up until I got a 6s plus in january 2016 I can say without a doubt that it's the best phone i've ever owned and I like iOS way more than I thought I would. Before the release of the 6s and 6s plus I would have told you all iPhones suck but now that isn't true because only iPhones 1-6 suck. Same goes for LG last year I said the G4 sucked because it does but now the G5 is awesome but ugly AF(PA says it looks better in person) but that alone doesn't make it suck. My point is if I say a device sucks then that's just my opinion and my opinions aren't based of the brand of a product. Compared to the best of Android the current Apple watch sucks plain and simple.

The Apple watch is still overpriced because a lot of the other smart watches offer better materials from the start at slightly lower pricing or the same pricing. The Apple watch at $299 is only 38mm and has an aluminum case with a rubberized band. The competition starts with steal and leather or steal bands out of the box. So now if you want Apples leather or steal bands you have to kick in an additional $150 minimum. If you want 42mm then kick in an additional $50. Now Apples watch is $500 and the watch apps rely on the iPhone in order to run. WatchOS is by far and away not the best watch OS because even with Native app support Apples watch OS is still very restrictive. If a developer wants the watch to communicate with another device, then you have to make an iPhone app that will do all the communication. Developers don't have a way to make their watch apps talk directly. Unlike other watch OS's which can communicate directly.

In other word the Apple watch sucks and isn't worth buying.

By your logic if I said "mcdonald's burgers suck" then I would be biased? Because mcdonald's burgers sells really well, they must be good, right?

Opinions are bias, yes.

They don't have to be. When i'm being biased I let people know that I am but 99% of them time my opinions aren't biased.

ofcourse you wont mention that moto maker also does this kind of stuff.. since apple invent this kind of online customization..

Do you mean, why won't they mention it ... again? Since they did back in March. Please use that highly useful search function at the top of the screen before being biased and coming off a tad daft. I can't post links yet, but here is the headline from March 10, 2015. "Motorola launches Moto Maker for the Moto 360 smartwatch" Posted: 10 Mar 2015, 18:15, by Florin T. There you go, cupcake. Think a little.

I don't think you know what biased means because you keep using it when it isn't necessary or true.

I believe that's abducting their responsibility as a designer.

Good one! I wonder how Jony Ive would answer to that after condemning Moto maker the other year.

Lol, Johnny deserves the pun you made tedcord. That was one of the stupid-est things he said.

What? So people have been buying a customized expensive smart watch with the design just in there head. Hoping it looks right. Wow. My old bamboo back, white 2013 Moto X I used Moto Maker is looking like a masterpiece right about now. I saw how it would look & purchased. Apple customers saw the Apple logo, purchased it & hope it looks like they hoped.

$50 for something that costs 40 cents to make and ship? I think it is still high for the limited functionality
