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?

"- Some method to sync with an atomic clock via my PC so I don't have to think about things like daylight savings time, leap years, leap seconds, and clock drift. (Without sacrificing the ±15 seconds per month accuracy of my current watch on the assumption that it'll always have a smartphone nearby.)

They actually have watches that sync by atomic clock with no need for the PC. They are a bit hard to find in stores though. No reason they could not just implement that in these smart watches.
