When it comes to wearable computing I think a smartwatch makes more sense than Google Glass. Curious to see where Google goes with this.

People will look a lot less ridiculous (yes I said it) with a watch than glasses. I really hope they get this right, it would be a fantastic market to break into.

The real magic will come if google (or anyone) merges the watch with the glasses (and the phone, of course) to create a network of body wear. The glasses could be less geeky, more subtle, and the watch could be a less disorienting interface for many things.
