Here come the endless stream of 'that's too expensive' comments from those who've obviously never bought a quality time piece (that has a fraction of the functionality of this device) yet most often cost considerably more.
Granted... Given what this device appears to offer, it being some US 50.00+ more than the Galaxy Gear while delivering less functionality, fewer features and lesser build materials/quality, does place it in a price tier higher than is (comparatively) justified.

For me, the only similarity among regular time pieces and these new watches is that both of them are used on our wrists, we can´t even compare them

Who would wear an ugly thing like this on their wrist?

Another pointless product.. google glass and these watches need a cell phone connected too them.. the game changer will be when they are voice activated and ARE the cell phone till then they are gimicky overpriced toys. Rather wear a nice watch than this geek toy..

Explain pointless? What if you prefer not to pull your phone out of your pocket/backpack/purse and would like quick information/notification off a watch screen? Much like the reason for the wrist watch vs. the pocket watch. Or what if you need to charge your phone while maintaining connected for important notifications?
I'd much rather wear a watch then wear glasses that don't look like glasses.

Now this is going in the right direction. Can't wait to see what Google and Apple (more the former of course) bring later.
