Back in February, we detailed the specs of the the Neptune Pine, a strangely-named smartwatch that doubles as a smartphone. If you've been chomping at the bit in anticipation of wearing this monstrosity's 2.5" display on your wrist, the time has come. The Neptune Pine is now available for pre-order at NeptunePine.com, lightening your bank account to the tune of $335 for the 16GB version or $395 for the 32GB model. Both are available in Jet Black and Polar White. It looks like they're also throwing in a bonus heart rate monitor for the pre-order crowd, so for those of you out there who want to exercise with a small TV on your wrist, this is it.

Should you decide to pre-order this gargantuan smartwatch/phone abomination, you can expect to have it on your doorstep in December - if you live in the United States or Canada. For more information, you can check out the full press release here.

    My prediction: there is no way the watch will be as thin as the renders show.

    • Thomas’

      1.42cm isn't what i call exactly "thin".

      • zorak19620

        Which is why the render photos need to be altered to better represent the actual dimensions.

        Casio G-Shock watches are the same thickness or thicker. The max being 17.3mm for the GWA1100-1A3

    it looks really cool though.

    Sometimes I get the feeling Android Police isn't real fond of smartwatches..

    • ProductFRED

      For $335, this thing better come with a Samsung Apex, if you know what I mean.

      • Cory_S

        I'm not defending it...I don't think the tech is ready yet. But, I don't think that's a lot of money for what it is. I bet the margins on this thing are pretty small really.

        • Ian Santopietro

          Maybe the problem is that that's too much hardware for a watch.

  • z3r0_fool

    I like this. A lot. But what sort of android apps would actually run on this thing being so small?

      well Xperia X10 mini had a 2.55" screen and it worked somehow...

  • iandouglas

    I love how none of the pictures on the site actually show people WEARING the device.

    • p

      Micro USB proprietary?

    • Cory_S

      Ninja edit.

      Frame of reference for size: Pull out a credit/debit card, put it on your wrist. Imagine it's about an inch less wide, but the height is about accurate. Now stack almost NINETEEN cards on top of each other.

    • Herman

      Oh, they know how ridiculous it looks.

  • Matthew Fry

    It's certainly one of the least ugly versions but I'd have to see it on an actual person to tell for sure.

  • Danny Davis

    Personally something like this for outdoor activities for me would be great. Espcially out running, hiking and biking. As long as the hardware / software was reliable.

    • Steph Chi

      +1. Such a screen is not so bad outdoor to see maps ...

  • LiiIiikEaBau5

    I can buy a mobile for that price!

  • eldermoore

    Android? check.
    Dual core? check.
    I'm sure both processors are located on watchband..

  • Ibrahim Awwal

    Might as well strap a Nexus 4 or two to your wrist for that price ;)

    I went to neptunpine.com to read more. There it is a bunch commercial-like pictures with happy people focuses on their arms: like "Look at me, I,m soo happy because I have a Neptun Pine on my arm!" But the clock itself is not in ANY of the pics! That told me a lot about how ugly this things must look on ones arm :-D
