  • This is great news, I can’t wait to get one! I’m just a bit confused about the colours as they don’t obviously match up with the photos. I assume by elimination that “Oatmeal Beige” is the silver watch with the white strap, and “Rose Gold” also has a white strap but is the only watch that isn’t silver?

    • Hi Garry,

      Yes the colours are a bit confusing. You are correct in that going by the photos the Rose Gold is the only variant that doesn’t have a silver watch face. Lime Green also seems like a strange naming choice as the strap looks to be more of a yellow colour in the photos.
