Yeah I made my decision.. it wasn't really that hard
The strap / connector is pretty good. Lots of holes / options if you want it loose or tight, like a normal watch would, and with the dual prongs, it adds an extra level of security to the strap connection.
I'm liking the fact that you can now view everything in portrait mode instead of landscape. It feels like a more natural watch now, instead of having to tilt your wrist / cock your head to view it in landscape mode.
