Sex sells: LG's G Watch promo site looks like a posh fashion magazine

Sex sells: LG's G Watch promo site looks like a posh fashion magazine
Look at that gorgeous girl, about to take a dive in the endless ocean at sunset. What do you see? She's got a watch on her hand, but if you're a man, you're probably noticing a thousand other things first. We're professional, but even we can't help wonder whether she's wearing a swimsuit or not (feel free to lay out your arguments for and against in the comments below). What were we talking about? Yes, a water-resistant watch, of course, pardon our forgiveness.

Now, back to the watch for one slide. Now look at another stunning female model, running the track. "Thinking, feeling." She's also got a watch with an "Always-on display", but the image has more juicy highlights for viewers to focus on. Then a few more.

The point? The LG G Watch is stylish, fitting the perfect lifestyle of the models. But is it really this point that comes across? Look, we're definitely not complaining about LG's style in models, but the LG G Watch does not really seem like the focus of these images. They look much more like a posh fashion magazine, and what we're trying to say is that it might not be the best way to focus attention to it. Or maybe it's the opposite, and you'd remember it easier this way. What do you think? Sex sells, but is it the right way to promote a gadget like the LG G Watch?

I do:) its on her wrist. Also she does not wear any swimsuit. Bad girl, staying naked on the shore but who cares "One doesn't buy a coffee shop just for a cup of coffee" ha ha...

inappropriate lead... it isn't really sex. more like stylish stuff, and I have to say I completely understand it, because as much, as you hide a phone in your pocket/whereever, you expose your wrists nearly all the time. nothing really wrong about not wanting it to look like a piece of crap.

If someone gave me that watch, I'd sure as hell hide it in my pocket.

Lol a LG product like a posh fashion magazine, it looks like a cheap device that you can win for a dollaaa. Moto 360 looks much better.

How will these watches function while away from their smartphones, say if you go on a run or something like that? Will they be capable of a cellular connection eventually? Would they be able to store and play music via a wireless headset?

LG G Watch is way too big and squarish on the wrist. Nothing sexy about it and no amount of sex advertising can sell it.

I'm sure someone tried to sell stuff using ugly models and failed.

It works! A smartwatch no matter how functional it is, still needs to be sexy to sell it to the masses...who wants to wear it if it doesn't look good on your wrist.
