    Until the day comes I can buy a Casio "smartwatch" that is less than 100 bucks, has the BASIC functions of time, that is set with WWV, has a metal band, has a battery that lasts for at least a year (my WR50M wave ceptor lasts for years), and is rugged enough to be dropped, banged into, scratched, heated, cold, shocked WITHOUT PROBLEMS, I'll skip the whole smart watch. Heck, I don't see a lot of young people these days wearing watches, opting for using their phone. This smart watch is a technology, in look of an reason to buy one. Maybe hipsters, but I don't get it.

    At least my pebble can last through few days, more then a 3 at least, of course they advertised more (about 7) but it's still lot better then charge every day, that is just stupid for me, I did buy 3x bigger battery for my note to be able to last 3 days and now I would have to charge my watch every f.... day - no way, Jose
