why we need a smartwatch when we had so many products to choose from which have all the features. a watch's display is not enough for reading info. let alone play games. if it used as a compass and a phone in a desert, maybe i would give it a try.

IMO they only make sense as a peripheral to a holstered phone, allowing a quick call answer or message preview. As a standalone, uh - no.

Mostly agreed.  However, basic watch functions such as actually telling the time and setting alarms should not require a tethered phone to function. That's where a lot of these smart watches completely fail. It's either one or t'other, never a sensible mixture.

I feel the same way as a lot of people here - it's not my thing, but it's a pretty cool ad.

Maybe an iRing which has vibration notification [i.e. emails and txts] and hold a secure key for such things as computer access.
