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?

Well, seems a bit large, and doesn't hold it's charge long enough to be useful, but I still might be interested in it. One thing though, I'd never wear it in public, since it just looks awful, horrible, ugly. My hand would just fall off in protest. Watches are more than a tool, they should also look nice. That said, we've always seen watches that are ugly and people still buy them, so there will definitely be people, who'll buy this thing as well.

If you can't make it nicer or smaller, make it to look like a traditional pocket watch, with chains and everything, nice silver housing ;) I still wouldn't wear that, but at least it wouldn't look exceptionally horrendous.
