I wonder how it will compare to the Pebble.  I saw the Galaxy Gear today at 2degrees and it just doesn't compare to the Pebble.  The screen goes black less than 15 seconds (galaxy gear).  My Pebble is viable all the time from any angle...

I might get on board this if they make it to the Linux stretch-goal.

Hmm, internet seems to be broken. Not getting sites or services outside New Zealand or Australia.

According to rumors, Samsung is working on a SIM-enabled smartwatch dubbed the "Gear Solo." Launching in the coming weeks, the watch wont need a smartphone to place calls/receive data. It can fly solo.

Its the logical move for Samsung since they can't compete in the companion watch category. I suspect that the all in one watch will be a very nitch market though.

Difficult input mode and small screen will prevent it from replacing the mobile phone at this point. I think the Pebble is still the best option on the market. Its also the cheapest option too!

This is considered "unique" in the US. It's referred to as "the law" in New Zealand.  There were some things that were just bizarre to me in the US. The look of gratitude on some peoples faces when you tip them just made me feel pity for them sometimes.
