Now why would I spend a fortune on a hunk a junk for my wrist when I can just as easily haul my smartishphone out of my pocket?

Smart watches are a gimmick, nobody needs them. They focus on showing you everything else except time, which is in the upper corner barely visible. They don't look nice at all, I prefer the looks of standard watches like I.E. Sector, Casio, Fossil and others...They all have nice watches.

I like how smart phones have become so big that accessory items with screens the size of an old feature phone's screen are being released to save you having to pull the 5inch+ device from your pocket. I'm not keen on having another device that I have to charge every day! If I had to have any device of this type it would be a Pebble watch.

If it doesn't have a camera, it won't run ALL Android apps... most notably Skype.

And what would the battery life be like? A watch that must be removed & recharged every eight hours is a non-starter.
