    Waste of money, who wants a watch you have to charge 2-3 times a day

    They say it will last all day. I believe it because it is just an addition to your phone. a quick glance to what's going on. it's ont something that will be on all day long.

    Of course only real tests will tell.

    TO be honest, I haven't been more excited about a product since the original iPhone. This really could change things. They did it right.

    I'll consider when the watches begin to look more fashionable with curved glass. There are some 15 companies designing watches right now, I'll let the industry settle down.

    If you're waiting for curved glass you'll be waiting for a long time.

    Manufacturing curved glass in volume is very difficult and expensive.

    Just watch the reviews they say that to expect to charge it 2-3 x daily with min use....also why use the watch when you have a phone.....

    I'm gonna pass. It's a great concept no doubt, but the price is a bit too steep for my pocket. I welcome the technology and added convenience, but not for $300.

    Even if this first generation unit doesn't sell well I'm sure Samsung is already on the drawing board for a second version and maybe then I'll give one a shot.

    I'm in no hurry to be an early adopter. This has buyers remorse all over it.

    if it would have been a little cheaper in a preorder bundle i would have got it, but now i think i'll wait to see if there are black friday / christmas specials on it.

    The battery life is a killer for me. Currently own the Pebble and I love it, but even with a one week battery life, I forget to charge it. One less cable I have to carry around with me.
