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?

Who? Who are these people? I wish to meet them, and shake them by the neck.


I don't see what your problem is. No one is forcing you to buy a smart watch. No one. You will still be able to buy other watches.

Regarding other people, I personally don't know anyone who actually wants one, but they're out there. For example, when Apple releases its own smart watch, don't you think they will be a new craze? Don't you think a lot of people will buy them? I'm not even mentioning quality, it's probably going to be good, but either way it's a guaranteed success. Even if the only reason is the logo.

Just to reiterate, I am *not* an Apple fan and I am *not* a smart watch fan. I don't even wear a regular watch.
