I am not a fan of things around my wrists and neck. I have no use for a smart watch. I hope it's a fad that dies quickly.

Hey man, you wanna buy a watch? If you had a watch you'd know it was nighttime and nighttime ain't no time to be in this here neighborhood!

what's a watch?


A very convenient way of finding out what the time is without having to carry something in your hand or take something out of your pocket/bag.

Every day, I have people asking me what time it is because they're not wearing a watch and I am. It's time they bought a watch, that's what time it is.

Fail. Smartphones are getting bigger this decade, not smaller.

No one's going to buy that enough to make it worth producing.

"...a couple of wrist bands and some Velcro..."
I wasn't thinking that primitive but, I don't see this going anywhere except toward having a cell attached to your forearm...

Get a couple of wrist bands and some Velcro and attach a "smartphone" to the back of your forearm - job done!

If it's good enough for Kirk it's good enough for you.

I'd like to have one (when/if) the technology gets better. That thing is ugly as sin and at the moment I don't mind pulling out my phone. What I want is a wrist computer that is holographic so all I am wearing is a simple band and it displays an interactive screen down my forearm.

I have a Pebble. Waste of money. It's fine as a watch (kind of hard to read sometimes) but the "apps" are a joke. You can only have a few installed and the size requirement is so small they are largely aesthetic or have no real function. It has its high points but overall I wish I could have my money back.

It would be a handy nav-unit for my bicycle rides. Also hold music. But as a phon...no. I enjoy NOT being reachable on my bike.

@Flying: Watches are more popular now than they have been in years. Especially big fat expensive ones.

I've had mine a few years. The odd side-effect but hey.

they should have called them time bracelets, that would have done the trick

All it needs is a remote control for the other hand.

I don't agree, Flying. This is one from 7 or 8 years ago.

I've used more than one calculator watch and I even had a Casio phone dialer.
The last time I bought wristband for my last watch, a Timex Marathon, was just before I started to carry a cell phone on a regular basis.
When polled, the thing people say they use most on the cell phone is the clock.

Well, that and I'm imaging Drac having dinner with the significant other's parents when, all-of-a-sudden, SO's ass starts ringing...
"Oh, my!! I though that was on 'vibrate only.'"

It would have been a fantastic hit if it were introduced about 8 or 9 years ago. Unfortunately for the clueless corporates, the fashion of wearing wrist watches has more or less gone the way of bell bottoms.
