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?

That's more of a smartphone replacement, correct? I could get by with one of those paired to a Bluetooth earpiece for the occasional call. However, it would need to be rugged, water resistant, and able to be placed on a custom wristband (I'm a tall guy with large wrists) before I'd even consider replacing my smartphone with it.

Still, it's an interesting concept, and I like the design of it.
