Samsung announced the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and already it has a new name. $300 Stupid Watch. Kirk McElhearn:
Samsung’s smart watch is doomed to fail. It’s too expensive ($300 is what many people pay for phones), and it’s another device that has to be charged every day. With only ten hours battery life, it’ll certainly run out of juice when you need it.
You’d save money and get more functionality by strapping an Apple iPod nano onto your arm.
