    Could be the best Apple Watch review I've seen:

    From The Verge...

    Well done review for sure! I'm excited to see where android wear goes once the Apple Watch has been around for a bit.

    The 4-minute mark of this review hits the nail on the head about how I feel about smartwatches.

    Other than that, it's a pretty good review. Very detailed and doesn't seem to show any real bias (though I was a bit distracted while trying to watch the review, so excuse me if I missed anything). I forget if it was Verge or another company that is bias towards Apple.

    The Verge is slightly biased, but nowhere near Gizmodo.

    Ambient lit apps ftw! What a cool idea!
    If, like the S, you can set the Wi-Fi (data network on the S) to auto connect (turn on Wi-Fi radio and connect to a network) that'll be a REALLY nice feature while not being a battery hog unless you're away from your phone all day.

    Ahh yes, Gizmodo. I don't even go there and don't watch or read their reviews, which is why I forgot the name hah.

    I stay away from their android & iPhone articles, but I find some others interesting from time to time.

    You've got the 360? If memory serves Foxkat said it does have Wi-Fi and again the LG that many have also has dormant Wi-Fi.
    Honest to goodness I think unlocking Wi-Fi and using the watch remotely is going to be a real hit for most. It's a hoot leaving the phone wherever and still being in contact with it. If they add Wi-Fi calling that'll be just awesome also.
