behold the benefits of prioritizing being first-to-market over making a great product

Dan Seifert at The Verge reviews the Samsung Gear 2:

The Gear 2 is greatly improved, but it’s still not great. I was able to use it for about 2 1/2 days before it needed to be plugged in, and it still requires a clunky, easy-to-lose clip-on adapter for charging. A smartwatch that can be charged on the weekend and last through to the next weekend would be ideal, but the Gear 2 is not there yet. The Pebble can very nearly manage this, but we’ve yet to see what the coming Android Wear watches will offer in terms of battery life.
Cons listed: “Interface is still clunky; Battery life isn’t great; Only works with Samsung devices”
So the Samsung Gear went from really shitty to kinda shitty.
Sounds awesome. Where do I get one?
