Re: Still need that "killer app" ?

My son wears a watch - ordinary for school, waterproof Timex for Scouts etc.

It doesn't help him look to his mobile because its a huge smartphone (Moto 5)

I don't wear a watch because I got out of the habit when working in laboratories and with strong magnets in mass spectrometry.

What I'd like to see in a smart watch is a basic information I get off the top line of my mobile - time, date and the alerts that come up. Not really a smartwatch but more a dumb repeater so I don't have to fish my phone from my pocket each time it goes ping.
