Today I got my first Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch from Amazon. Awesome gadget @ 299$. Check it out guys: http://goo.gl/OLu3FP
I want a smart watch or some other wearable tech for excersize purposes, but i dont want to spend $300 on it!
I'm still waiting on my Hotwatch. Some delays in it's manufacturing from when it was Kickstartered, but I definitely like the hands free calling technology they offer to allow for a private phone call. From the reviews I've read so far it's apparently well executed.
The only thing these devices lack is a good battery. Anything with an AMOLED screen (or really any iteration that is colour) has garbage battery life. Just think of how long a normal cell phone's battery is rated to last, as new apps come out that push the device to the limits of it's design you can watch that sucker drain in under an average work day.
E-Ink is nice in that it is only really needed to update once a change of state is noted which conserves battery life, but still is subject to poor research into designing more efficient batteries.
I'm astonished on how popular these watches are getting. Didn't think there were that many consumers who don't wanna take their phone out and read messages/call. It could be a must have for people who have been watching spy flicks and now they own something very similar or better than how they were portrayed in movies. If things keep looking up for smart watches, expect Rolex to roll out a smart watch that's epic.

Looks like an awesome choice if you're looking for a smart watch. I've never really been interested in a smart watch because of the small screen, but I can see why they are becoming more and more popular.
PC gaming FTW! Can't wait for The Witcher 3.
