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?

It's a great way to handle non-important information. A quick glance and you're done. No taking out the phone out of your pocket.


I think a better approach is to tell your phone to stop beeping at you about non-important information, esp the social media crap. Not only will you save yourself $200+, but you also won't have to wear this ridiculous fucking thing on your wrist, and have to charge it every day.

If you feel like you need a smartwatch because the amount of times you pull your phone out of your pocket every day becomes cumbersome, I'd say you're way too distracted by your phone.
