Re: No Gee Whiz Factor Here
Speaking of Dick Tracy - Apple probably owes the creator some royalties I would think.

Re: Wow, still don't get it
@vnewman2: Indeed.  Nearly any tech, for that matter.  I spend so many hours staring at a computer screen.  When I'm rich, I am so done with this whole Internet thing.  I'll just sit by the pool -- and pay someone to print out interesting web pages.

Re: No Gee Whiz Factor Here
YEARS ago, my dad had a special "beeper watch" that allowed people to send text messages to his watch for him to read.  This was in the '90s.  So, to be fair, it's not like reading messages on your watch is a particularly new concept.

Re: Wow, still don't get it
I went on a date with a girl just this past weekend who had a FitBit.  She showed it off to me and told me how she was able to use the data, in a matter of weeks, to find a better sleep pattern for herself.  Understanding her sleep needs better, she is now more well rested.  It was fascinating to hear a real-world example, face-to-face, from someone about how a FitBit helped improve someone's life.

Re: Wow, still don't get it
@shakeeb - that would never fly here. They use their mobile devices like computers - they need to see everything - which is why "Good" tech is just bad for us :)

@Joe – I am sure for the rich they would have an Goal coated or a Diamond studded smart watch.

Re: Sony
@Joe – Any particular reason why Apple should focus on the eyeglasses too. I believe the Google glasses didn't turn out be successful as expected.

@Joe – I haven't seen devices where you could video conference on your wrist. Well unless you tie your smart phone to your wrist.

Re: Wow, still don't get it
@Thomas  - I have been using my Smartwatch 3 for few months and haven't see much of an issue. The wrist strap seems to be wearing out and Sony didn't release the steel strap although promised.

Re: No Gee Whiz Factor Here
@asksqn- Emails were never meant to be viewed on your watch hence I agree with you.
