      lol $99.
      The first one came out at what? $250-$300?
      I doubt this will be any different unfortunately.

      Also the battery will most likely be terrible like the first one.

      I doubt they’d release a new watch without improving the battery even slightly

      I have a feeling that the tech reviewers got pre-production Gear, or something, as I never get less than 2.5 days on my watch. Frequently 3 to 3.5 days.

      That’s all I’ve read on reviews of it. I don’t have it personally.

      I’d like a smart watch, but would prefer one that’s a full blown phone and looks like the wrist device that Leela uses in Futurama. lol

      You’re looking for the Neptune Pine. I personally wouldn’t want something like that though. Useful on it’s own, but then I’d need a dedicated SIM card for it if it’s to stand on its own without a cell phone, and while it’s possible to do things on a screen that small, it just wouldn’t be comfortable. Sticking your arm in front of you is ok for brief communications like you see in movies, but suppose you wanna browse online or talk for say, 5 minutes on the phone. Your arm is going to be super tired by then.

    They look awesome!

    Sure the bells and whistles will ring after a week or two, after that they will be boring. I quite enjoy my Pebble and it does alot for the price

    Sammobile. com just reported that Samsung announced the watches at MWC
