Re: Why bother?
>How many hands do you need to use a watch?
Zero, if you are just glancing at it to see what a notification is.
>How many hands do you need to use a phone?
One, usually, but it has to retrieved from a safe place - a pocket or bag - and returned there when finished.
>If you are standing on a train/bus or holding a cup of coffee - you cannot use a smart watch
Fair enough, on the occasions that it is easier to use your phone, you can still use your phone. That doesn't mean that the phone will always be the easiest option - a cyclist would find easier to tell the time from a wristwatch than they would by pulling a phone from their pocket, locating the screen lock button to display the time and then returning the phone to their pocket.
>A smart watch is not as smart as a Rolex for example, in fact it is rather untidy in comparison
Fair enough - though I'm not Rolex's biggest fan, I think a useful smartwatch could be made that doesn't draw attention to itself. I'm thinking of that Tissot Touch watch, when tapping 3 o'clock made its hands rotate to indicate altitude, touching 6 o'clock made them act as a compass, 9 o'clock a thermometer etc... its appearance gave no clue as to its extra functions- it looked like any other analogue watch.
