I don't think many care about the specs too much, as all these watches seem to be in the same category of specs nowadays.

The battery life though....that's the biggest concern! Watches such as these should get at least 2-3 days of life. I've been reading many reports of these things getting only a full day charge, which seems bananas, as historically a watch has been one of the things in life that you've always depending on "working"

(Plus that $199 price is kinda outlandish. These watches to me are still for the early adopters in life, which just isn't me.)
