smart watches could actually have some good functions, mp3 player, just plug in your headphones, you can see the time, date, temperature, weather forecast, have meetings/calendar notifications popup on your screen and beep such as birthdays, mothers day etc. If they had a circular screen and the battery life was 2 months and they cost under £35 i'd contemplate buying one. I haven't used a watch in years but i miss mine, it is annoying having to get your phone out of your pocket, especially if your jean pockets are full. Sometimes your battery dies and you don't know the time too.
All cellphones are already mp3 players, plus like I already mentioned, you could throw a strap on a touchscreen Apple Shuffle and you'd have every feature you mentioned.
Also, when you mention cellphones dying, if all those features were on a smart watch, there wouldn't be much for battery life on that either.
