    Well this post gets a 1/0 for laziness and lack of effort in making this post. :mellow:

    By the way are you talking about like some kind of android watch?

    You are better off buying a IPhone 5C or an LG G3 with the 150 for emulation

    Or straight up emulation consoles. Maybe the GCW Zero?

    I think his point is he wants a smart watch, but wants to know how much more he should put in to get a watch where he can run some emulators!

    This too

    But I always go to phones cause they are cheap, and if your current One breaks, you can Just change SIM and use the second one until you get the primary one fixed or you get a new one

    For a smartwatch it would be uncomfortable (in my POV, I don't have one and I don't plan on getting One)

    Please, no.
    Either help the poor lad or not.
    Don't go posting dumb shit like this.

    OP.
    I'd really go for a phone if you want emulation.
    Smartwatches are... well.. to see what time it is.
    Not to mention they are more power as well.

    If you really want it be done then, I guess any second hand one would do fine.
    Usually they are the high end models and can run a lot.

    Well yeah, for one, NO CONTROLLER. :P

    Also a watch? what kind of acceptable size screen would you put on a watch for games? It be worst than tiger hand held eletronics, wrist watch :P

    Sure get a phone, but how can you play any EMULATOR GAMES, with no controller? That just how video games were ment to be played, directonal pad, buttons, and perfect control. Not sloppy touch screens for games. :P

    That's why I suggested the LG G3 or the IPhone 5C

    They are around 120-140$ and for 20$ more they can get a Bluetooth Control :3

    @DinohScene How do you expect someone to help effecitnly without enough information, I stated my opinion and that was it. It was not a insult, it was mearly a observation. If more details was added, less confusion, more questions could be avoided, instea of seeing stuff like this. :mellow:

    Okay, i guess, but controller attachements, are just as nice. Is just there, with no extra setup, or wireless problems.

    Still no reason to post shit like that.
    You're basically putting yourself on the same spot as OP.

    He isn't delivering much details on his post and you're not delivering much help on your post.

    If your opinion of "dumb shit" is that then sorry, If perhaps i know more like is he looking for a watch that can play emulators, or which one should he get if there was any, or was he looking for anything specific, it would be something to use to help.

    Smartwatches for gaming? Are you serious? If you're lucky you can fit two fingers onto the screen.

    There should be emulators of Tiger Electronic Watches on those smart watches. Play a little WWF Superstars and Mega Man 2 on the go.

    Tbh that doesn't sound like a bad idea. But the lack of physical buttons kills it. The screen is just too small to fit both buttons and the graphics

    And boy, I sure don't want a 7 inch smartwatch on my wrist. Atleast it can function as a shield without an app

    If you ever have something that big on your writst, expect it to deflect bullets, or something like armor. :P

    Captian america's sheild or some other secret agent weapon. I rather have something like a GBA sp, with a folding lid and buttons attached to the screen, but one of those open source emulation hand held like GCW Zero, had interested me until nvidia shield came out :D

    Maybe mod a raspberry pi to be mobile device, it should be powerful enough for anything before Dreamcast
