Right now the tech world has focused its gaze on wearable technology like Google Glass and the long-rumored "iWatch" from Apple. While the first watches to be worn on the wrist were designed in the 1880s, they were considered inappropriate for men (and most women) until the military duties of World War I required two critical things: Coordinated effort and the use of two hands. While the earliest "trench watches" still had the hinged covers inherited from pocket watches, the straps that allowed them to be securely worn on the wrist meant that checking the time became the result of a quick glance rather than an elaborate ritual. Fast forward 100 years and the same action can mean checking in on personal health data, schedule, communications, and, well, time.
