Isn't a dual core in a smartwatch with a 1.5" screen a bit overkill?
Then again, everyone plays Asphalt and Fifa on their watch, don't they?

I dont see how this is a copy, its better than everything that is currently available in the market, its exactly what all smartwatch look like in most videos, a smartphone on a wrist

14. VZWuser76 (Posts: 1304; Member since: 04 Mar 2010)


Exactly, in this case they have surpassed what is currently available. When I heard about Samsung's smart watch, it seemed kinda ridiculous. It's basically a Bluetooth accessory. With this, you don't have to have a smartphone on your person to make calls or have functionality. If you could tether a WiFi tablet to it I could see this being big with the business crowd. Your WiFi tablet could always be connected as long as your smart watch has a cellular signal. This is the direction where smart watches should be headed towards, not as an extension of your smartphone.

So you (Samsung hater) are not going to carry a smartphone, but rather carry a watch phone and a tablet with you at all time.

My last phone was an S3. Finding faults & hating a company aren't the same thing. Samsung's hardware is fine, I just find the implementation flawed. And I'm not saying that you would always carry a tablet with you at all times, that would be just as flawed. What I'm saying is the primary device (or the one that can be used on it's own) should the be the watch. And if you need more usability THEN you'd move to the WiFi tablet you would tether off of your phone.

I'm not a Samsung hater, but I'm also not blind enough to believe that ANY device is without it's flaws.

For someone that don't even own a smart watch you sure has a lot of negative comments.

While i already own two smart watches with two more on the way.

I quite agree with that. Down the line 2 primary groups will evolve Smartphone ppl v/s Smartwatch+ Tablet ppl. There may be a small overlap group of Smartphone+Smart Watch and an even smaller group that buys all the 3 components. I feel like if i have a smartphone I don't need any other device. My music, media, work, messaging, etc. should all be on one device.

Samsung haters are becoming like those iDiots and iGnorants. So you rather pay 2 lines of service for a smartwatch and a smartphone.

I own Gear and Note 3. I love them both. I get three full days out of watch and almost 2 out of phone.My I Phone 5 could never do this. I love Samsung.

39. VZWuser76 (Posts: 1304; Member since: 04 Mar 2010)


Why would you need 2 lines of service? Only 1 line for the smart watch and a tethered WiFi tablet. Or you could replace the WiFi tablet with a non activated smartphone and again, tether it to the smart watch. Either way, the feature that is missing on this watch is the ability to be a WiFi hotspot. Then you wouldn't need a smartphone as well.

Think, THEN speak.

Stupiest idea. I wouldn't give up a smartphone for a smart watch. Little kids probably will.

Something is wrong with your video codecs

weird, because this is just an youtube video, are you able to watch videos on YT site? Maybe instaling K-LITE codec pack will help you, just google it

This is basically a 1.5 inch screen smartphone tied to your wrist. Must be a puny keyboard. In any case its better than the Samsung idea.

I think this will be a product that sells to even a smaller niche of people that the other watches. A ton of people use their phone for watching video or taking pictures/video. This doesn't do that and still requires you to carry a phone. This means two monthly bills.
