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 don't know why this is even much of a discussion, so called 'smart' watches have been out for a while.

I recall quite a few years ago, a Linux watch being made and it even ran X11.


I remember that too, along with a Palm based PDA watch by Fossil. I'd love to have both in my gadget collection.


Personally, I don't really want a 'smart' watch, I just want one where I can make calls on, because talking to your wrist like you're a spy would be awesome.
