Re: I don't get it
"Well, I do feel a need to have them all. :) "
How funny. Maybe we all should have them all, just in case.
Sometimes the discussions about smartwatches remind me of the first discussions about tablets. At the beginning, some people said tablets were made to be an extension of the laptop. Since then, tablets have evolved to become stand alone devices. Of course, tablets are not for everybody either.
So, I would say that smartwatches might follow the same path. They may be an extension of the smartphone at the beginning, but soon they will become a device in its own right.
There you go. If your wife had a smartwatch she could save your life. :) The price will come down soon, just the same as Google Glass.
In conclusion: You just keep your smartphone and buy a smartwatch for your wife.
