The girl made me scared of buying their scared. (She doesn’t even smile or excited of their new smart watch!)

Why do they have the most awkward keynotes? The guy has to tell the audience to clap. I think Samsung should hire actors for the keynotes moving forward

So thick! Can’t they make an elegant watch that can be worn for dinner? Why must it look like a sports watch?

LOL. Another misleading ad. It has to compete with other smart watches first and it will never be compared with Apple Watch unless it can work with Apple ecosystem which it will never will. I guess this ad is to trick non Apple users into thinking buy this, it’s Apple Watch for Android. LOL

Anything watch running Android is nothing but trash. Or like that psycho MUKAI used to say Garbage.

No kidding. Talk about the blind attempting to lead the blind into being biased towards something he always fired every excuse in a vain attempt to make the Apple Watch sound unappealing. Glad he's (hopefully) out of his troll hole and has finally come to his senses.
