Re: Smart watches should be simple
Pebble was excellent and as a "solution looking for a problem" I found it really useful. The did the obvious thing and made a watch with always on sunlight visibility. It ended the sound of a ringtone and released me from having to dig round in pockets to check a notification, replacing that action with a 1 second glance.
Fitbit killed it, then brought back something similar called the Versa at triple the price of the Pebble Time.
Apple sold almost 20 million expensive watches in 2017 alone. Some big name traditional timepiece makers had to sit up and take notice at that. Certain to be more cash into Apple's coffers and absolutely not a mistake for their business.
