    I would love it if they release a rose gold option as well.

    Hi, unfortunately we've talked about that in the insider program and it seems more complicated to make this watch with other colours because of the ecg system.

    Would it be possible to keep the sensors as it is and make the rest (rose)gold? The sensor part isn’t visible when wearing the watch anyway.

    To do an ECG the watch has to measure across your heart, that's why when using it there's a requirement to place your non watch hand on the front of the watch. The signal path goes through your non watch hand, across your chest/heart and back in the watch via the wrist your watch is on. So it makes sense that the materials in use on both the front and back of the watch affect the readings considerably.

    My guess is you have to separately get certification for each material used and as we know its been a long long wait just to get the two colours we do have in the Scanwatch :(  (I bet the certification cost a lot as well!)

    I noticed the Galaxy Watch 3 (which will supposedly get ECG) is also very limited in colours (only 2 per size). They do have a mystic bronze in the smaller side but its not really a rose gold. As far as I know Samsung still don't have their ECG certification and from what I've heard even the Galaxy Active doesnt have it yet and that's been out well over a year.

    I can imagine the process is a real pain :(

    I was waiting for this to be released hoping it'd be in rose gold. If you do decided to engineer it in gold I think there would be a big demand for it. I guess this won't be on your road map for a at least a year or two?
