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?

Battery life is indeed a bummer concerning a number of devices.

It's a good thing battery life of laptops has increased over the last few years. I hope they'll put in the same effort for mobile phones and smart watches.

If laptops and tablets have the long running feature it will become something people will expect. I'd happily have a less slim phone that runs much longer on a single charge.

People use battery cases now that make phones bulkier then when they would have had a larger internal battery.
