    I really don't get the point of these things. Just set your notifications to vibrate/sound and take your phone out of your pocket.

    there is no such thing as an iPod watch. and as always with apple fans its about looks. well anyway, looking forward to those plastic phones that come is the same colors as a bag of skittles.

    Think i'll stick with my g-shock watch for now. Not having to worry about charging a watch every day is a major plus for me. Biggest reason I never bought into the whole using a nano as a watch thing.

    iOS7 looks and feels nothing like any version of Android. But we could always play that game of who had what ideas first and who stole/borrowed what from who. Really is no winner to that game though and has gotten very old.

    That's why it requires BT 4.0 since that's the revision of Bluetooth that added BTLE support. Battery usage is greatly reduced

    Yeah I've watched a lot of videos of people trying to compare both, and I honestly don't see anything android in ios7. If you would be so kind as to enlighten us as to what apple copied, we'd all appreciate it

    U got that right. Can't see the battery lasting long at all. Being paired using Bluetooth will eat a majority of the battery up. And if the battery life is like the phones it will really blow. (Don't explode green alien users it was a joke) u have to remind them sometimes. They take life so seriously. Lol.
    I thought apple figured the whole time travel thing out years ago.

    This thing is way too niche to make any headway, even when you don't factor in its shortcomings. First off, it only works with a couple of Samsung's top shelf devices. They should have made it work with any Android phone, or at the very least any Samsung phone.

    The Galaxy Gear isn’t currently compatible with other Samsung devices beyond the Note 3 and 10.1 as it runs Android 4.3 but it will support 70 third-party applications at launch. By that statement my guess is it needs android 4.3 to run it, won't be long before a multitude of devices run 4.3

    Then on top of that you have a very distinct design that only a relatively small subset of those particular phone owners will like and want to wear on a regular basis. THEN on top of that they have to find it interesting enough to lay out $300 for it.

    Thats simply your opinion and not hard fact.

    And then you have to throw in all it's issues including a battery that may or may not last through a day, sluggish performance despite its basic features relative to its CPU, and creep factor with the spy cam on the side.

    Again highly opinionated with no evidence to support.

    Add it all up and you could probably count the total consumer market for this on one hand!

    Any Android user looking for a smartwatch is much better off with Sony's new unveiling or the Omate if it performs to expectations.

    Keep trying
