Re: Less is more?
Even though Apple has done an impressive job as squeezign in so much features and functionality into a wrist watch, there's still the question is it'll be something that consumers really use? (I can't picture my self sending a text message from a watch).
So like you mention, Microsoft is definilty doing the right thing at targetting a price range that's more accesible, and could have higher probability of being more widely use.
In fact, if Microsoft allows for the watch to interact with PCs and Laptops (since the user base is wider than windows smartphones), it would be a hit.
Like similar products, the watch would interact with the home PC/Laptop, and be able to capture and process data while at home, exercising, etc.
