how long have you been waiting for the Smart Watch? I just barely started wearing a watch in the past few years to until then I couldn’t have cared less. But now that Samsung is releasing their Galaxy Gear Smart Watch, I want one. First reviews are mixed, but since it’s a whole new product category you can’t help but have some places where the device falls short of the dreams people have had for it.
The starting price is $299 so that means I’m going to have to wait to find one on the side of the road. That’s how I get all of my watches and sunglasses. For that price though you get a watch that would make James Bond jealous. It’s basically a smart phone strapped to your wrist. It even has a camera on the wrist strap.
Of course you could argue that several other smart watches already exist, Garmin and Suunto both have watches marketed to athletes to use in their training. And Casio has that calculator watch that I’ve wanted since second grade. Since I have none of those I think I’ll just tape my current phone to my wrist and keep my eye out for a smart phone that got taken off someone’s wrist by a pigeon while they hung their arm out the car window.
