    who thinks this will catch on and become the new "in thing". watch collectors still chose the automatic chronometers. I mean who wants to read their emails, watch YouTube, reply to inboxes, brows the web, on a 1 inch screen ?

    now, now...I know I like small screens but I still have my limits as to how small.

    One thing that hasn't been addressed with all these proposed watches. Durability. They will almost certainly have to use sapphire crystal. Nothing else will do. Look at the cheap watches that people buy at walmart or other retailers. They don't hold up. They can not/do not hold up. While they whole tech industry seems in an uproar about these items. This point has yet to be addressed. Not to mention waterproofing and basic life proofing. If all these things are designed to do is create a redundant use of tech that I already carry around with me. I just don't see the point.

    I think samsung would be wise to buy Blackberry but thats just me.
    For the watch I just don't see them being a must have item. Maybe for quick peek at who a message is from but I don't see even wanting to read a text message on a watch
