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?

What it could do: weather, small messages, programmable beeps for specialized alerts


Yes, I see what you mean. Things like Google Now make a lot of sense on a smart watch, besides the ability to be notified about *things*, like incoming calls, SMS, E-mail or even changing the music track you're listening. Like I said, I find it interesting.

Don't get me wrong, we'll also be flooded with very crappy stuff.
