This is the only smartwatch i'm actually paying attention to....and i still doubt i'm going to buy one. They just seem like gimmicks to me. However, with correct Google Now integration and nexus pricing...this one could be one of the best choices.

Those small details and features is what will set them apart from the competition. So far Pebble is the closest to get it right and it shows in their sales.

There will always be people who just don't get it untill it slaps them in the face. I remember people talking about how cds and even dvds were gimmicks. A first gen. dvd player was 500+ dollars. Now how much is a dvd player, $40? People want things now now now and don't seem to be able to look at the future of products. I agree with you, smartwatches and other wearable tech are the future and I couldn't be more excited about it.
