probably missing one important feature that they'll include in the iWatch 2, like being able to tell the time...

I believe for these watches (not just this watch, these other "smart" watches as well), to have any real true function, they need to be paired with your smart phone.
To be paired with your smart phone, that means your smart phone needs to be on your person.
If your smart phone is on your person, how ****ing lazy do you have to be to not grab it and do whatever it is you are looking towards this watch to do?
My point being, this is truly the dumbest technology I have ever seen.


Pretty lazy. :)

The only instance I can think of where a watch that links to your phone would be useful for me is at work. I like to keep my phone in my pocket, and since checking my wrist for the time is already natural, glancing at it to see who is calling or texting would be easier than fishing the phone out of my pocket. That's why I've been kind of eyeing the Pebble. I could leave the phone on my desk, but I have a tendency to walk off without it. :(

i dont get the thing about willow glass being able to be wrapped around a cylindrical object like a a wrist... does that mean the strap is made of glass? or is it just a plastic strap?

Nailed it

There are 2 reasons you would want to wear a watch.

1. Because you want to tell time but don't want to really look at the phone all the time (rare these days because most people that fit in this category will just have time on their phones)
2. People who appreciate watches like I do and wear them as prestige thing and jewelry really and appreciate the craft of watchmaking that goes into these pieces of art really..

I don't see how iWatch will cater to either of these crowds. It just seems incredibly stupid.

Someone like me who has Breitling watches and wears at worst (Invicta higher end or TagHauer as my daily drivers), I wouldn't be caught dead wearing an iWatch. It just reeks nerd without any clear benefit.

since its may require Internet connection, it needs extra power, and thats mean battery life.

seriously watch that need to be recharged every few hours?
