Does anyone know if smart watches will hit retails like Walmart, best buy, staples, etc? Or will they only be sold through the Google play store?

I don't think I've seen any mentions about retailers.

AT&T is slated to carry the G Watch, no word on the Gear Live yet, but we carry the entire Galaxy Gear line so I imagine it'll trickle in too.

Would highly doubt that Samsung and LG would let it be a Google Play exclusive. I am guessing like the Nexus devices, you can get them at selected outlets too
Personally I would like to see them all in a store, which I think will likely happen in the next few months (incl. moto360)

Daaang. Didn't realize it would be in Amazon so soon. I have prime shipping and Google charged me ten on my pre-order for shipping. Maybe I should cancel and then wait till amazon has it?
