Smart watches aren't ready for mainstream yet, though this is certainly is progress in the right direction.

At the price range they're looking for, brand and image is a big factor. This looks very thick and would probably look out of place with formal wear. There is a market for big, chunky, and cutting edge, but it is very small.

It looks really really nice, and the transparent overlay is a nice idea. Having said that, I'm not sure I'm ready to shell out $500-$1000 for one. Maybe 4 or 5 years from now we might see the price drop into impulse-buy territory...

I agree this is a step in the right direction; regardless of the snazzy marketing for things like the Galaxy Gear, the Gear remains kind of dorky looking, and as far as I can tell, it's not useful for much.
