All wristjobs are as insecure as $#@%, reveals unsurprising research

Re: Really?

Not a dig H4arm0ny - no need to get so defensive. I know there are plenty of WP users, and not just in Europe - they're pretty popular in the sub-continent too. Of the people in my (European) office, we're evenly split between WP8.1 and Android, and I there are plenty of others scattered about the campus.

For the record, I'm one of the users (and looking to stay so with a phone upgrade imminent), although my Band is the only one in the Office.

On your other point, I do agree. Since the Band works on all three major platforms (does the Android app work in Sailfish?) it should have been tested on all three. However, since this is obviously a poor article regurgitating a poor press release announcing poor research, poorly done, I don't think it was a consideration.

Re: Really?

Looks like the Band probably wasn't tested - From the Research Findings in the document:

"HP reviewed 10 popular smartwatches along with their paired Android or iOS mobile device and application."

Now, I know the Band can easily pair with both Android and iOS, but surely in a security test, you'd pair it with its "native" OS as well. Wouldn't you HP?

No, try;

"Google’s announcement catches up with Nokia’s launch of Video Calling for the 6630 in 2004."
