Do you just need your watch to tell you the time and, maybe, the date? Or do you want something more?
There was a time when the definition of a smart watch was one that told the correct time! It could even tell you what time it was in New York!
Well, that was a different millennium. Now, we have the ‘smart’ watch, which can connect to the internet, download your
porn emails, notify you of impending meetings that you need to avoid, get the latest updates and synchronize with your ‘smart’ oven to have your dinner cooked by the time you get home. OK, I may have been exaggerating with that last one, but you get the picture. Oh, and I believe some of them can even tell you the time!
Do we need all of this though? We already have laptops (remember them), tablets and smart phones that can do all of that for us, without having to compromise our eyesight by squinting into a tiny screen attached to our wrist. How many gadgets can we carry? I have a picture in my mind of people with a regular watch, smart watch and health band all adorning their wrists like bangles jingling around!
It is getting silly and I, in the main, will just stick with the regular watch. Call me old-fashioned, but what the heck! But, I guess I need to move with the times and, with that in mind, I will be looking at smartwatches in more depth in the future.
