Another useless garbage "experiment" product by Sony and it's going to flop big time, as usual.

It's like they're just throwing **** at the wall, hoping one of the turds will stick.

Wow, why the hate. The product is not even launched yet and you believe it will be doomed. "Flop big time" & "No chances of success", uhmm theses might not sell out like something Apple might make but think that there would be many people you would want to buy such a product. Only time will tell.
Me for instance, I like the battery life and that it is a watch not pretending to be a mini phone. Also like the minimalist design and that it is not bulky - won't look bad on my skinny arms.

Why is everyone pushing these watches? Even the hype is not that big and I'm pretty sure it's not selling that well either.
