So the complaints boiled down to

1) no battery life.

Opinion : well sure, there is almost no body to the damn thing, where exactly is all the juice going to get stored? Not so much worse product, more taking the fact people would rather have something that is pretty over functional. If the glass was massive and bulky to give you a day of battery, THAT would be the complaint.

2) Doesn't sit on my glasses properly

Opinion : Bad design, but cant help think that a little bit of a twist here and there would fix that (the frames)

3) Warrenty

Opinion : 30 days is not that unusual these days, many shops wont honour things after 30 days. When things come to that, you need to look at consumer law, Some pretty good things in the UK which mean when push comes to shove, if you can prove a device is not fit for purpose, google would be required by law to refund you.

4) Turning on randomly

Opinion : Bad software design probably, but the statement is answered pretty easily, it doesn't turn on randomly, it turns on when you jolt it back, or knock it. So no it isn't random at all. It is a combination of user error and bad design

5) Slow boot up

Seems like the device boots at about the same speed as an android phone, and see point 1, the size of it doesn't exactly leave room for blazing speed processing power.

6) Expensive

Opinion : Well a lot of things are expensive these days, you know the price, and if you have enough cash to throw around then don't complain. If you don't have the cash but still throw it around, then also don't complain. Could just as easily try and find someone who is a user of said device and ask them for their opinion first. Don't just take the sales room pitch.

All of these things just make me think that the product isn't really finished yet and development is still required, I can think of many worse products. Its like the whole Xbox one and PS fight about not being able to sell your games... well did either company flop? No

Hmm guess i'll wait till the product is more refined, had a thought last night it could help someone with very poor vision, the screen on the glass could help with that

It's not the worst. The Motorola Moto 360 smart watch, and others, are far worse.

Personally I don't have the need to look at a watch to tell me what the weather's like or what time my flight is, YMMV!

No that would be Windows 8 (Metro). Google glass is a very close second though.
