Short and sweet - is the so called 'smart watch' the most boring and pointless bit of tech ever invented (whoever makes them)? I would say a resounding 'yes' to that question. Whilst some will work without your smartphone being nearby they are essentially 'companion devices'. If ever a device was invented which was then looking for a market it is this 'trinket'. I genuinely wouldn't wear one even if they were 'free'. The battery in my current 'analogue' watch is now pushing 4 years and tells perfect time, what else do you need? I would prefer a 'root canal' procedure each and every week in preference to owning a 'smart watch'.
