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?

As I mentioned I won't be buying the "ridiculous fucking thing". I'm waiting to see if Apple comes up with anything or go for a Pebble.

My smart phone isn't smart enough to determine what is and what isn't interesting for me. This could also change depending on the situation I'm in, like being in a meeting or at the movies.

Isn't that the real problem we should be trying to solve, instead of inventing yet more devices that let you view information you really don't care that much about?

That would be great, but I don't see how.

When my phone enters DND it will still make sound if it's my wife, but often it's not important, but one day it could be.

And some stuff might interest you, but not today.

It's hard for software to determine what is important to you and what can wait. It's also fuel for court cases of people who missed important info that your system didn't view as such.
