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?

I think this fits the bill:

I was just thinking to myself that a smartwatch with a low-power e-Paper display would be a step in the right direction, then I noticed your link. That Pebble-thing might actually be useful since you don't have to be recharging it all the time. There's two niggles with it that bother me, though: it looks like an ass and it apparently has no audio capabilities, only vibration. Perhaps the next version will be better ;)
