    It says 'One year international warranty for mechanical operations.'

    I wonder if anyone will buy it thinking it really is a mechanical, and will be disappointed when they have to charge or replace a battery?

    I can see the attraction, but wonder if it fulfills the function of phone, camera, etc as well as dedicated kit.

    Besides I'd feel a bit silly talking to my watch.

    Wait, you mean that you don't talk to your watch?

    Besides being stupid looking. I can think of 6 reasons off the top of my head why I don't like this watch:
    1.) I can imagine the stares you would get talking into your watch. I think the Trekkies might dig you though.
    2.) Only 1.3 megapixel! What's the purpose? lousy pics. And the blur factor? Try and keep a watch still while snapping a shot.
    3.) Video camera: I guess? If want to secretly film something for evidence or pic up something off the ground under a woman's skirt without getting caught.
    4.) The technical features are already pretty out-dated. It only gets worse from there as time goes by.
    5.) It looks like(in the right pic) like one of those old school Simon says games.
    6.) Your Wife will definitely say to you: "WTF did you spend $500 to buy THAT thing for?" and "Aren't you taking this hobby thing a little too far!"

    There you go, my honest opinion..........Cheers!
