hmm, my phone already has GPS, GPS might be nice if it's a standalone watch

@kill_dano i'm also interested in the SmartBand Talk, wonder what kind of notifications (if any) it can show and what the battery life is like

just too bad they put those markings on the bezel, not every watchface will go well with that, i want the bezel without the markings

Design - MEGA FAIL
Android Wear - FAIL
1-2 Days battery life - FAIL

it's definitely not an upgrade, obviously downgrade.
I will stay with my SW2 for another year or so.

it's not a bug, it's a feature!

I read somewhere that Sony only used Android Wear for now because their own firmware isn't ready yet. They want to switch to their proprietary firmware once it's ready.

OTOH this really is the only Android Wear device with integrated GPS - which will be usable with the new version of Android Wear coming in October.
