    Now there's a great idea. Here's another great idea: Make the wrist band the battery on a smartwatch. There's got to be away to make that happen. This would make the battery swappable and also slim down the current bulky design of all smartwatches, making it more appealing to people that don't like a giant brick on their wrist.

    Isn't Big the new small?
     
  4. This technology already exists in smartphones. It's called the little.Big architecture used in today's ARM chips. So the idea is not new.

    Doesn't the Moto X have a small cpu which is always listening out for voice commands? I can't see how this small start up can be doing anything novel enough to rival the big players but I wish them good luck.
