    and the background you chose is a live feed of JC Penny's stock price? You could have chosen a picture of a tube of toothpaste and it would have been better.

    That must be my problem. The screen is so pretty I can't stand to turn it down more than two clicks. Hurts the battery pretty badly.

    That stock has been the bane of my existence since I bought some 2 months ago. Was down 20% for a long time. Then back to break even. Then down 10. Then UP 3-4%. And now back down 8-10%.

    I monitor it daily. Not good for my psychological well being. Fucking should have sold it at +3-4% but some dickbag executive accidentally leaked same store sales comps to an analyst two weeks back. JCP then had to report that to the SEC and make it public information. Those comps were the catalyst for its most recent downfall.

    So GF whats the verdict on being able to glance at your wrist casually without raising it up to look at it? I heard that was an inconvenience.

    It hasn't been an issue for me at all. There have been maybe one or two instances where it didn't work and I had to tap the screen.

    If anything, as a regular non-smart watch wearer, it's the microsecond lag you get before it turns on that bothers me a little.

    Overall doe, it should all theoretically be adjustable by software so I imagine some tweaks in the future.

    That's what I might do actually, it's the internal storage I really need. Don't really want to start carting around and plugging in an external HDD all the time. SSD is much faster than a HDD, but it's the volume rather than speed that's more useful to me. :)


    BTW nice to see people with their new Apple Watches. :slayer:

    Yep, I liked it better when I saw it in the store, and it also looks good on @greenfrog. Tempting, but will resist the urge for now.
