Hanson,

 

Here is a sort-of hands on with Samsung's Gear Live

 

Here too

 

...and don't forget here

 

Very detailed reviews should be out tomorrow (particularly on Engadget) as attendees

to the conference were given a watch to take home and review.

 

It comes out today.  I might purchase it just to get by on something for awhile.

 

Still looks too bulky for my tastes, tho.

 

And I just found the official info commercial for it...

Think I am going to wait for the Moto 360.  This looks like the

watch to beat until Apple shows up with theirs.

That commercial serves as a great reminder that we are all going to want to punch idiots screaming into their wrists on mass transit in about 6 months.

Also, the interactions with the watches are at about 200% speed of how well they actually work per the keynote. Maybe they slowed it down for the audience but I don't think so.

Still too large for my tastes and this coming from someone that wants a 5.5" phone. :)  I would say the 360 would need to cut its thickness by half for me to be interested. I am curious to see what Apple comes up with.

 

That being said I have a feeling this generation of "smart" phones will be very popular.

As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. - Hunter S. Thompson, 1958, from cover letter he wrote for a newspaper job.

I wear a big ass Tag Heuer the few days a year I wear a watch. The size isn't going to stop me, but what is:
- Daylight usability
- If it doesn't last at least 24 hours on a charge
- If it doesn't give me something more than better glancibility

So far what's offered seems to fail on all 3.

No indication it gives glanceable time. Every time the demo lady touched the phone to wake it up.
