Sony's smartwatch is the best (looking) one!

I really don't think these watches will take off. The average guy/large majority wear a watch for style. Then you have the outdoor type of people who get a rugged watch so their stylish watch doesn't break (also does other things). This leaves smart watches with no market as they are not stylish (who wants to wear a LCD screen on your wrist) and not strong enough. You will get the hyper nerd/hipster (with the later wearing it out of no-one else wearing it) but that is it. This smart watch thing is a massive waste of time (especially when you need to charge your watch. Who wants to do that)

I'm 100% on your side with this. It's pretty gimmicky in my opinion and in all likelihood will disappear almost as fast as the MS smart watch from a few years ago.

I agree. I actually had a phonewatch sort of last year. More of a hassle than anything. Too small to read texts and you really need a bluetooth headset to use it properly. I hate wearing those though.

Yeah not sure exactly what the market is for these. When Apple makes one that might change though. Their legions of fanboys would buy a smart toilet brush if it bore an Apple logo.

Totally agree. I don't like having to always have my phone in my pocket or in my hand. Wearable computing has a lot to offer.

I just want my phone to slap around my wrist. The first company to do that has my money, lol.

Bendable phone: Fold it long ways then slap it on your wrist, it becomes a watch with alerts. Pull it off your wrist and unfold it and it becomes a phone/tablet. Sounds easy to do!!!
