Some of the current set of smartwatches are completely useless if you don't have a companion smartphone to provide a data connection.

Really all you need to do is buy a small smart phone and make a detachable wrist band for it.

Damn, in my product design course I've just designed something very like this. Oh well, this looks far better and much more possible.

why just 512mb of ram? That is a little too light. I would prefer ditching the rear camera (because talk about AWKWARD) in favor of going 1gb .
