    Seems like an enormous amount of computing power (and power consumption) for a watch. Does a watch really need to run Android? I'm missing something here.... Reply

    I agree. A Snapdragon 200 would have been more than enough for this device. Shoehorning in a 400 just seems like overkill. The processors in these watches are powerful enough to run a Moto G! Reply

    Also, what's the purpose of a GPU in a smart watch? Reply

    Yeah, this is absurd. There's no need for a quad core or even dual core. It's a watch. Battery life is the most important thing. Reply

    I don't really understand the point of Android Wear, since you still have to have the phone anyway...

    Of the three, I'd buy the Sony one in a heartbeat as it's Sony, IMO looks the best, and it's WATERPROOF. (Plus larger battery.)...but I don't really see the point.

    Intrigued by what the eInk device can do. The idea of a speaker and mic in it are interesting, and eink would seem to make a lot of sense for a watch. (I'd still like an eInk tablet...)
