    GPS equipped with BlueTooth to load travel info from ones iPad (or Android) running Garmin Pilot.
    Also controls Garmin's line of video cameras.

    Granted it does not show phone and event alerts (yet), it's quite a James Bond toy.

    Certainly looks better than Samsung's effort, but still, what exactly is the point in these smart watches?

    To make Garmin filthy rich ;)

    I certainly see not much benefit for the user. It's a gadget.
