    I'm curious, does/would anyone actually play games on their Smartwatch? A little poll here: http://www.crosspoll.eu/poll/175319151

    By the way, I'm not using the built in polls because I'm asking people on more than one forum.

    There are a few games for smartwatches, so there has to be someone playing them :)

    I'm guessing kids would.

    I'm still on the fence about purchasing it. After seeing it though, I think they could do a lot more conversation/interactive book style games.

    "80 days" on your Apple Watch, anyone? :D

    Clearly there are people who will play games on their watches. I'm not one of them, not yet anyway.

    Saying that I have played around with ideas for a couple of, kind of, mini game extensions for my games. While I do find them entertaining, I still wouldn't spend the time playing them myself.
    I just don't see the watch as a suitable platform for gaming, small screen, uncomfortable playing position for any length of time and the bloody screen keeps switching off. Which is why I'm not incorporating any, yet.

    I agree I once thought games on the watch were daft, But I think Trivia Crack is great to play on there and now it's one of my most used apps on my watch. I wouldn't play anything else though.

    I played this game called Chairman Cow, I think it's pretty entertaining since it's got a good storyline. It runs really well on the apple watch too, and I enjoy it's artwork.

    I liked Lifeline a lot, but I felt it was a bit short and suffered from pacing issues. Day 1/2 went at a good pace, but by the end of it, I was getting pinged for story updates like every 10 minutes.
