    Personally, I don't want to support a company whose marketing text looks like broken English and bad grammar. I know that this isn't really what we should be focusing on, but it looks bad.

    The watch itself is not very good looking, and the interface could be better. At $99, it just seems like it's going to end up being very low end and cheap.

    Yeah, I'm not sure if I trust an already well established smart watch maker who's been featured on techcrunch either. :/

    I'm cutting them a break on grammar since they are based in France.

    I like the design better than the Pebble, but is that color e-ink? I didn't see anything in the description about the display, only that it is supposed to last 10 days between charges. I think they will make their goal for kick starter, and have a feeling we are just seeing the beginning of bio-tech in 2013.

    On my girlishly thin wrists a watch that size would be utterly ridiculous.

    :-(

    Make's me wonder how you feel about the Pebble.

    I think this looks better than the Pebble. The Pebble looks cheap and outdated.

    The Pebble looks nicer. It's only "outdated" because it's the better watch and e-paper.

    All these smartwatches so far look like cheap Casios to be honest. Why can't any company combine the elegance of normal watches with modern technology? I don't want to see some neon colored rubber band thing on my wrist.
