Cooler than I thought it would be, but still not something I would be interested in. I mean, I got my first cell phone in Y2K and the first thing to go was my watch. 13 years later I am not about to adjust to having something strapped to my body again.
Not bad! I'd get one but I'll probably wait until the next gen or other companies enter the market and the competition gets fierce. I think the future of the smart watch is pretty promising. However, I expect these to be banned in a lot of places, just like google glass.
Ehhh. $299 for a smart phone accessory is ridiculous, nice try Samsung. At least it has some sort of pedometer but more focus on health related apps/tech would have been better. See what the iWatch packs for a reported $199.
I'll keep my Bell&Ross for now. I don't see myself having to charge any watch ever so often. Some companies (Seiko, Citizen) have incorporated solar panels in their dials, at least eliminating the needs to charge them manually or replacing the battery. No smartwatch can say the same, AFAIK.
'What time is it? My watch battery died' will soon become a much more common expression. And the sad part: people will buy this because some idiot tries to market it as the next big thing when it just isn't. I'll stick with a mechanical watch, thank you very much. That said, I'm not most people. I'm the guy who brings a laptop with him, but then owns a 15 dollar cell phone. I just don't really like the phone constantly trying to absorb less capable versions of other devices into itself. Not all devices need to be smart. Some just need to do what I want them to. No more, no less.
"There's also the question of battery life. Samsung says the device should last roughly a day with "regular use" when new, but those wanting a more intense experience will have to recharge it more often."
