    I wonder what the battery life of this thing is?

    It seems to be an Android phone as a watch... Except with the phone part taken off.

    It doesn't look very cool, it's a real shackle, too big on the photo at least

    I'd never heard of this guy or his product/s until I read this article.

    Maybe one of these days a knockout wearable will come along. This is not one of those days.

    I didn't read that :/ I lost interest at Will...

    Anyway surely you'd need like a headset in or something to actually make calls?

    Whatsup? Not directing this comment at you directly Will, but perhaps considering a financial planner would be a great idea... With the market being SATURATED with smart watches, being that they are smart and not an archaic phone slapped to your wrist being serviced by AT&T... I guess you don't want them to have actual service either. Find a deserving charity to donate to. I'm beside myself and wondering if this is all a joke?

    Saturated?? Since when??? This is truly news...

    I didn't like the idea either, but calling them archaic phones... it might have been if they throwed in Symbian systems, but they'll be using Android systems which make them very modern capable devices.

    Get your facts straight before vomiting your thoughts to the keyboard.

    I think this looks good, and that you guys who don't get it are wrong. but what do I know? Probably nothing. I mean I guess there's a market for smart watched that are paired to a smart phone. I don't know why in the world anyone with a smart phone, that can do practically anything, would want another gadget that basically just replicates what their phone does, but on their arm, on a tiny screen, and only when close to your phone.... retarded. but a phone type device on my arm that actually replaces my phone and watch, that sound good to me, but since that makes sense and the world has it's head up it's ***, it'll probably flop.
    the other day a good friend commented on how smart phones are more powerful than the computers used to send man to the moon. I said "sure", I mean didn't we cross that line ages and ages ago... but later I thought I should have replied, yes, they do, but in modern times we don't do stuff like that with of tech. instead we show the world photos of what we are about to eat." that's having your priorities in order.
    perhaps the only thing to save this device would be some special feature to allow for great food photos!
