Why is everyone making a smartwatch?

Well the answer to this is actually really simple...

For years apple has designed a product that sells like hotcakes, iphones, ipads, etc... and the other companies play catch up, while losing serious market share to apple..

So these companies have learned their lesson, don't wait for apple to do it and then dominate... instead find out what apple is working on and then make your own...

The worst thing that happen to the other cell phone companies like version was having customers come to their store wanting an iPhone, and Verizon not only not having an iPhone but also, when that customers says, "ok well you have anything like an iPhone" they had to say No.. (recipe for losing a lot of customers quickly)

Now that was back then, today companies are not waiting, they are throwing money at R&D and getting their products out there.

So it looks like now it's find out what apple is working on and let's see if we can make one..

Apple should just hint at making the iToilet. I'd love to see where companies go with that lol

@Crazyglues You took the words right outa my mouth. Everyone got blindsided when apple released the iPhone and then the iPad. They don't want it to happen again.
