Re: Wait, what?
"hey, I can HEAR the damn thing already, OK?"
I like my phone on silent in the office, so my pebble steel is awesome for letting me know when I have calls or texts.
My wife carries her phone in her bag, which muffles the ringer... I got her a watch because she never picked up when I rang her... Now she does.
I don't have to carry my phone around the house with me when home, but still get the messages and even do which replies from my watch. Helps filter whether I check my phone when reading kids or pick up when walking out and about.
It wasn't so long ago smart phones were considered pointless by those who didn't have one, now most people have one... I mean, who needs a phone to check email and the web, you have a PC for that. If you're out then you shouldn't need to reply instantly anyway, that's what phone calls are for stupid. I have a smaller mp3 player for music, etc etc. I have maps for navigation and they don't direct me to the middle of lakes, etc etc etc.
One size does not fit all... One mans(or woman's) pointless device in anothers useful gadget.
