        given the model is $350 they're probably thinking gigantic margins.

        It does but check the photos with the bezel, it’s completely absurd and far larger than Motorola’s circlular smart watches from 6 years ago.

      Man, I was pretty excited for this but that's a thick bezel for $350. Prob pass until it's on sale or wait for next year's version.

        also I haven't seen a single mention of battery life, which is concerning.

          I think I saw in their big presentation today that it was a day long charge?

      The only thing I saw that interested me was using the watch as a secondary screen for taking selfies away from the smartphone. I want more cool ideas like that please.
