Re: Still need that "killer app" ?

Well in my case , and many others the killer app is sports tracking. A sports watch with GPS and Bluetooth music means that you can leave the phone at home. OK not 'ONLY' by a smartwatch - but definitely 'BETTER' by a smartwatch. If I run with my phone it's in a pocket, and basically just a dead weight that sits slightly uncomfortably in a pocket. Hence the success of Garmin etc.
