Apple's Watch is basically electric perfume

Re: Surprisingly disappointing.. Jobs would have pulled it!

The only compelling thing about a watch is that it can use skin contact to do things that a phone can't, and that means health and security.. notifications, apps and colours are a nice if you can budget the battery.

You don't get Health monitoring if you can't monitor through the night (Apple's doesn't).

A Watch NFC payment only becomes secure when you can identify someone by their health monitoring (Apple's can't).

Apple's Watch doesn't have the battery-life to be useful, and its too late to remove the colour screen to save battery: Steve Jobs would have pulled it.

Wearing a bling-only watch that does payments and advertises an iPhone in your pocket is the most stupid tech idea this century
