In person the gear looks much nicer
When I first saw the Gear online I thought it was hideous, huge, obtrusive and just plain ugly. The other day I was at BB and I saw one in person and realized it's quite nice looking and no where near as large as I thought. I actually liked it. I cancelled my Neptune Pine kickstarter and think I may grab a gear and a Note 3.
I'm curious if I should wait for the Gear 2 though, anyone have an idea when that's supposed to be released, or even announced?
Also how close to a standalone Android device can this be? I saw a thread on running Netflix on it for example, that's pretty incredible. When I make a phone call does the watch have a microphone and speaker, can I leave my phone in my pocket and talk/listen thru the gear?
