    Can't wait to see the jack holes who will be having full conversations via their watch.

    I ordered some, and I know I will love mine, but I think we've opened Pandora's box again. Lol

    I can't imagine walking around talking to my wrist in public. Luckily I usually have at least one headphone in, so I can use the watch to handoff calls to my phone. I just wish there was a way to make that the default way to answer calls on the watch.

    I've seen people have their speaker on cell phone and have conversations, I'm those types of people will have calls in public on their watch.

    I use speaker all the time at my desk. I am sure I will here too. Not in public though.

    No need to hold it to your face though. The people that will do that are the same people who hold their phone like a pop tart right in front of their face like mic technology is still from 1989. I routinely talk on speaker with my phone feet away and it works fine.

    I quit being concerned with other people years ago. "People" are idiots.

    A lot of times when I get a call on vibrate, sometimes I don't even feel it in my pocket. It'll be nice to get an alert on my wrist.

    I hope you're in a private office or your house and not sitting in the cube maze. Because if you're in the cubes, I've got news for you - your neighbors probably hate you. :eek:

    Seriously, I've got coworkers who do this. It's right up there with clipping your nails at your desk and nuking fish leftovers in the communal microwave.

    What's a cube?

    Go to small business. Release your inner Peter Gibbons and quit doing TPS reports. :cool:

    Etiquette? If someone is using a speaker phone while in the hearing distance of others who he/she is therefore inflicting the speaker phone conversation ON, I give that speaker phone user no extra courtesy nor do I give them the courtesy our parents would give to someone who expects quiet from others because "they're on the phone".

    Strange way of thinking. Hearing one side of a conversation is far worse than hearing both sides; which is as if the two people were stood by you.

    I thought this thread was about the possibility of the new watch with embedded SIM card, lol.
