<< < (4/4)

Not usable for me (apart from the fact that I don't wear a watch anyway). A friend of mine had the TI's smart watch with MSP430 inside and i kinda liked what it was capable of. And battery life was like >1 year I think.

Yep, what's the point. I already have a phone that's a PITA to remember to charge.

It has "Qi wireless charging". Didn't know this before, looks like some kind of standard: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qi_(inductive_power_standard)
So at least you don't need to remember to fiddle a power cable into it every some days, just put it on the pad every evening.

But the watch is really expensive. $179 if you need the charger, too. Compare this to Pebble: $99, including the charger (well, it's just an USB cable, but with a nice Mac-like magnetic clip at the watch side). Still a bit pricey. I wonder when you can buy the first Chinese clone for $10. You can already buy a full Android smartphone for $65: http://www.technologyreview.com/news/511796/heres-where-they-make-chinas-cheap-android-smartphones/
