Fine, fine. I want this "smart watch."
However, I just discovered this beautiful thing and I want it. Badly.
So, I apologize for being so dismissive of the nano-watch. Because, this concept probably can be pretty cool.
I might get the lynk after the holidays, we'll see.
My only complaint is that it's a little big, so it won't always fit under some shirt cuffs. But, as a casual watch or just something different to wear, it's great.
My reasoning for getting it was that the band (~75) + nano (120) is roughly equal to the price of a good watch from any number of brands, so it might as well be something different
To have this as more than a glorified watch or SMS / caller ID thing, you must tether it. And we're presumably all aware of the vagaries of tethering. I'm not sure how consistent the operation will be for starters.
The storage is too little for music IMO and it will also depend on how quickly you can sling data across to this unit through USB - I'm going to conjecture that it'll be a lot slower than dedicated devices like the Nano.
I guess it all depends on that unusual 'must have' app that might appear, but for now colour me relatively uninterested. Which is really odd even to me, but there you go.
i like the concept and it actually looks good. it reminds me of the Microsoft watches that got weather and other misc items wirelessly . they didn't look all that great and i think the best they did was receive pages.
at least with these devices they appear to offer much more flexibility with apps but do i want to have to buy more apps for my watch on top of the ones i buy for my phone?
