Doesn't having the charging interface at the bottom allow one's sweat to corrode it? Does this mean i read the screen sideways? With the screen curved and so exposed, mean that it'll get scratched easily? Is the screen made of sapphire glass?

Fills a nice niche. Someone who wants something less intrusive. Just a passive device that is smaller than a watch. Is this a pebble killer?
