Watches are good at telling the time and date. Anything else is just too inconvenient and difficult to do in such a small area. Just look at the progressive growth in size of mobile phones since they have evolved into smartphones. Squeeze the functionality of a 7" screen into something an inch square? Not going to happen.

It's always been a nice thought, having everything on your wrist, but in real practical terms, it's going to remain in your pocket for the foreseeable future, and your wrist will remain the domain of your timepiece.

One of my colleagues at work has had one of the Sony Smart watches for a few years now, and it syncs with his android phone and lets him know if he has an email or a message, which is pretty cool.

But it's very small, and it doesn't really help you or make anything better.

I tend to have my phone in my poket at all times, if I were to get an email or message It's take less effort to look at my phone than it would be to look at my watch, and then my phone. :p

i have been looking into either the Pebble or the MotoActv for rather some time now however, if this could happen it would be a better watch.

Call me old school but i will never wear a watch like this.

Here's some real watches ...

I have well over 100 "real" watches in many different varieties however, i can honestly say I only own 2 that require batteries and neither of them have a digital face.

You mean like they do currently? Ohhh.... right... they don't.

That's because the ads are on the side (for third party pages) and paying customers get top spot on the search results. Exactly how do you think they'll show an ad on this device? Or are we to all be nieve and believe Google is our friend and will never show us ads?

How long before we see an ad come up? Will I need Ad Muncher for my watch too? No thanks, Google. Love your phones and all, but come on... a watch?

A bit off topic, but does anyone know what font Google's using throughout their iOS apps? Looks real nice.
