Samsung is set to reveal its Galaxy Gear smartwatch next Wednesday, Sept. 4, in Berlin. But this weekend, we got a first look at the watch.

Here it is.

I love watches (I have several watches for different occasions and clothing styles), but this thing looks ridiculous. A three inch contraption shaped like a Galaxy phone strapped to my tiny wrist?

What?

surely Thom you don't buy that's their true offering??

If it is, it's ridiculous! I mean the Note or Mega phablets arguably have their place.

But IF (as some sort of SmartPhone--AR_Glasses intermediate) we're to be inflicted with SmartWatches then surely but surely they ought to look at least as O.K. as the Pebble or better

I can JUST about except something like this 2009 sammy concept:

before we eventually end up with something more like..

Then again, if SmartWatches in five or ten years time come to possess all the power and connectivity of today's SmartPhones along with a reasonable svelte well designed form then perhaps *they* can become the semi-permanent phone replacements with AR_glasses (or scary 'brain interfaces') becoming the more occasional hi-res-visuals-&more interlopers
