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?

Heck they have the things in their hands all the time, checking messages and email, getting directions or looking something up so why not just use it, right?

Yeah, and they're completely unaware of everyone and everything around them. I guess I'm weird by state standards, I don't even want to use my smartphone in public unless I absolutely have to. I don't mind using it when I'm stationary (on a train, by myself at a restaurant, etc) but I can't stand the idiots that have those damn things in their hands constantly then bitch and complain when they get run over by a car that they would have been perfectly aware of had they taken their eyes off that screen for a millisecond. Oh yeah, and I wear a watch too. Nothing fancy, just tells me the time so as not to need to pull out my phone to see something that simple.
