    No for me. If I ever do smart watch it'll be either Apple or Pebble.

    Both are obviously proven brands and I'm not really a fan of the melding of traditional watch looks with smart watch technology.

    I want my smartwatch to look exactly like a real watch, and I still wouldn't buy that. I'm not interested until battery life improves meaningfully and they find a way to make a full circle.

    (And, I understand perfectly well why battery life is limited and the circle is "flat." But, I'm not interested until the tech moves past those kinds of teething issues. I bet smartwatches in three years will be pretty great.)

    I'm afraid they will.

    I wear a Prim (made in the Czech Republic) that was manufactured in the early 1960s, keeps perfect time and looks beautiful. Will your watch be able to make the same claim 50 years from now?

    I like it. I'm getting a black one. Should arrive this month.

    A watch company called oil, really? What's this model called Olio di Oliva? Case looks decent and that's where it ends. Why no endlinks on the bracelet? Why obscure 20% of the usable screen real estate with the logo? Also not feeling the Systim 51-esque dial mimics.

    The screen is not obscured. It's the type of LCD they use. I have one on order (the steel). I'm not holding my breath that it will ship by the end of August, though. Of course, I also bought an Olivier, so we'll see what happens...
