I've Motorola MotoActv actually bought for running, but scored some good points in battery and its my all time watch.
Little additions into it and Googrola can make a good smartwatch.

I don't think it's a smart monetary decision to buy an expensive smart watch when you already have a smartphone that can do everything it does plus more.

What you the need for it be other than trying to look cool?

"What you the need for it be other than trying to look cool?"

Exactly why people buy iPhones.

Shocking, isnt it...I kinda agree too....lol My watch is one of the few things I get for style purposes. I have a Kenneth Cole that looks real nice. I cant do these types of watches anymore.

I actually dont think you would look cool with it, for my tastes anyway.

Some ppl do tho....so I wont totally knock it. My kids mother tried to get me a watch similar to this...I'm glad she didnt...lol.

Some smart watches cost as much as a decent watch so why not. I was using a nano as a watch for a while for the same price i'd normally spend on a watch plus the added benefit of a music player. As long as the price isn't too crazy then I'm in.

Who isnt a copycat at this point in time? If you step back and look at alot of devices, technology...damn near everything is a copy cat.

I swear...I see less copy cat comments in the video game, TV, car world...and when it is mentioned...its not in a negative way.
