I just don't get the allure of a smartwatch. Why would anyone want one. Is it really that much work to look at your phone? Then again, I don't wear watches, so I'm biased. Can't stand the feeling of something tied around my wrist.

Do you think when they say 10 hours of battery life they mean if it was continuous usage. Example apple reports the iPad battery life as 10 hours but you can easily get 2 days before a charge if you take standby time too so maybe this galaxy gear is the same thing, they give battery life usage based on continuous usage time but if it's used like any other device, you can get a day or 2 like the iPad..
