Well the problem with these watches is that companies will try to do too much with them before the technology allows it to be done right. Take this watch for example, over on Engadget they called sluggish and awkward.
The watch should simply tell the time and act as a notification screen for the connected device. Nothing more. Keeping such a limited feature set should allow the watch to be smaller, get good battery life and have a simple/elegant design.
On the Note 3, hardware-wise it looks fantastic. However, given the amount of frivolous software/features Samsung stuffed on the GS4 I am sure the Note 3 would be no different. Hopefully they will come out with a Google Play edition.
Of course, the ideal situation would be for Apple to come out with a similar sized iPhone but I would be extremely surprised if they ever did such a thing.
