Re: This Just In
Daniel, I see your point. I felt the same way. I noticed that the nurse had a smart watch. I asked her if she liked it and why. She said that she's not going to take her phone out on the on her shift and then it allows her to see who is calling her and that she can reply with a brief, generic text message. she said it looks like she's just looking to see what time it is only her watch as opposed to using an actual mobile phone in her palm.

@daniel: While I agree with you, I also thought the iPhone, when it first came out, seemed frivolous.

Re: This Just In
@Angel: Your comment just goes to show the extent of Apple's branding success.  We're not just looking at smart watches and comparing; we're comparing them to the Apple Watch specifically -- looking to that particular device as the leader.

Re: This Just In
I think that although the Pebble smartphone idea is a joke it's probably not far from the truth. I struggle to really understand just what someone would need a smartwatch for – it just seems to me it is a peripheral for smartphones, right?

Interesting. I look forward to hearing the reviews for this smart watch, especially in comparison to the Apple watch.

This Just In
In other news, Pebble Time will soon release a smart phone -- but the smartphone only works if you have the Pebble Time Smartwatch.  /sarcasm
