    the battery doesn't last one day; it cannot work at all unless connected to a smartphone by bluetooth but it will not connect at all if the battery charge is too low. it is bulkier than the pebble watch. basically it is unusable.

    this watch may be a bit of a stumble...I'll wait for the techno beaver review before considering purchasing it.

    The concept is cool. It would be nice to leave the phone and just reference the watch for basic functions. I think I remember seeing an article awhile ago, Apple was working on some type of curved or flexible screen. That might make it much better. Nice slim display and the styling could be endless.

    Apple's will be a truly breakthrough product. Might even have a flexible screen. That's the thing with Apple. They may not invent things, but they do a great job of waiting on the sidelines until they perfect something. Smartphones were all over the place long before iPhone. But iPhone's screen and swipe interface changed the game. Same thing happened with the iPad. The tablet had been around and no one paid much attention. Suddenly, the iPad comes out and the next big thing was upon us. This thing from Samsung is pretty basic in what one would expect in a smartwatch, and it's ugly.
