You know how tech companies have been saying that one of the biggest challenges when it comes to building smartwatches is how to make it small enough so that it’s not overtly noticeable when you’re wearing it? Well the crew at Neptune don’t much care for that line of thinking and their new Pine smartwatch gives people the same thing that Samsung’s Galaxy Note gives to smartphone users: A really big screen.

The device features a 2.4-inch display, which is absolutely huge for a smartwatch, and also has a 5-megapixel camera, 512MB of RAM, at least 8GB of storage, a Snapdragon 1.2GHz dual core processor, GPS, and connectivity through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2G and 3G networks. While these are all very powerful specs for a smartwatch, we can’t help but wonder how many people will want to walk around with something on their wrist that looks like the PIP-Boy 3000 from Fallout. A video showing off the Neptune Pine follows below.
