Because the price won't be cheap for sure, so, if I'm paying a lot of money, I want the best specs possible :D

Awesome, just hope it doesnt become the omnitrix. does everything but tell the time and needs a recharge when you need it the most

As nice as that is, I cant have it. Anything that exists on my wrist gets torn off. With the screen taking up that much space, Its gonna need some flexibility to fit on my wrist too.

Beautiful? what? NOT.

As nice as this is to look at.. I don't see it being functional at all if the screen wraps around as far as it appears to. You'd have to twist your wrist in odd uncomfortable angles to read the whole thing!

Not to mention, on all my watches, the outside and bottom of the wrist gets the most wear and tear.. you cannot have the screen wrap around that far.

Just because the watch will have a flexible screen, doesn't mean it's going to wrap around your whole wrist!! lol

Don't worry about twisting your wrist. that picture is wrong. the screen wraps thumb side of your wrist

Those look great! But please don't require an attached phone to do everything. Give it everything except for a cell antenna e.g. stereo bluetooth, gps, Wi-Fi, accelerometer/gyroscope and you can take my money. Also it has to be water proof.
