Neptune Pine Smart Watch
We named it the most obnoxious smart watch we have ever seen. The Neptune Pine smart watch is easily if not the largest smart watch out there. With a 2.4in screen, it does not pair with your phone through Bluetooth because it is a phone by itself. Running on Android 4.1, the Neptune Pine smart watch features a keyboard that lets you send emails and messages, and there is also a VGA front and a 5-megapixel back camera. The screen is detachable from the watchstrap allowing you to have a mini smartphone instead of an oversized watch.
Neptune Pine is available for pre-order for $335 with an expected delivery of March 2014.
