    The Fit looks like it doesn't fit to me. Awkward, have to turn your arm in a strange angle to look at that screen

    I have huge wrists, I don't think any mass market watch will fit me either, so I feel your pain!

    I kind of like the Google Watch. It has potential.

    I am still waiting to see what Apple has up its sleeve
    before I invest in any of these watches.

    The more I think about it the more I am really excited about
    these smart watches.

    That Moto 360 really took this technology up another notch.

    That's a very attractive watch -- so much more so than the
    Galaxy Gear or Pebble watches. It's the first smart watch that
    actually looks more like a watch than a square brick on the wrist.

    The problem is, this technology is still in its infancy. Those that
    jumped into the Pebble and Gear and now seeing watches that
    pretty much obliterate them in the course of a single year.

    We have yet to see what Apple is about to produce, but even then,
    there are so many more years ahead to really refine these watches.

    If you are in any way thinking about a smart watch you need to read this article by Apple employee #66 Bruce Tognazzini, aka @asktog.http://asktog.com/atc/apple-iwatch/Don't think I wanna ruin it by quoting just a piece.

    The problem is obvious...

    Listen, like many of you, I am a gadget freak.

    I have to have the latest and greatest the day it is released.

    I have to be the guy at work or in my circle of friends who has
    something that nobody else has.

    That being said...

    You don't see me with a smart watch.

    The reason is simple....

    First, this is an entirely new frontier. To go out and buy the very
    first watch released would have been stupid --- especially when we
    all knew off-the-bat that Apple was working on one of their own.

    These days, you kind of let Apple lead the way in technology.

    Second, the Galaxy Gear and Pebble are pretty clunky and ugly.

    Now, almost a year later, Motorola is coming out with some pretty
    nifty watches that actually look like....watches. You can already see
    the technology has been further refined in a very short time.

    ....which brings me back to Apple....

    I am waiting to see what they introduce.
