  2. What makes this "for women"? Are men not to like this styling?

    I'm sure some feminist will say that this smartwatch is just another form of rape. It is the rape part that makes it for women. Since, you know, the tech industry is dominated by men and this smartwatch is symbolic of this male domination, or something along those lines. Feminists are pretty predictable.

    It's pretty clear which sex it was designed for, but to each their own.

    The styling is feminine by design. A male would only wear the products featured here if he were gay. Hence, "for women."

    They look too manly to me, I wouldn't ask these two out, that's for sure :)

    That's not outside the realm of possibilities these days.

    Wait... I read too much into that, didn't I? Oops.
  9. My original post was a little satirical. Feminists are always going overboard with "gender role" posts and whatnot so I just wanted to do the same, in jest, from the other point of view. :D

    What did the poor snake do wrong to wind up on the wrists of those two dogs?

    You'd likely "hit" anything.

    With that said, there is a twisted sort of psychology to using ordinary looking models, so you'll pay more attention to the watch. Still this modeling assignment was likely gravy for those two. Being able to keep their clothes on for a change.

    But really, did you have to stoop to "Crocodile Dundee" in drag? (The one on the left).

    I suppose they could put a crank in the middle of the Australian model, so as to make it double as a boomerang.

    "That's not a watch mate, this is a watch"!

    I'd be willing to bet most of "The Village People". wouldn't be caught dead wearing that watch, and they're about as gay as it gets.
