I sometimes wonder why they are putting high-end hardware in these watches when there isn't enough space for a large battery. This has 600mAH, not much for an Android phone. Something like the Nokia 100 can run for a month on 800mAH by omitting all the bells and whistles I think you would rarely use on a keyboard-less 1.54'' screen watch phone anyway, and just being a phone.

The Fifth Trumpet
â¦5And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man. 6And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them.
Revelation 9

As a Brit, the stuff I read about the cops in the USA freaks me out, maybe because of the relative lack-of-guns here.
  I read articles saying even your tax collectors are doing armed raids on houses, is this right? It seems like something from a Terry Gilliam film, nightmare-ish.
