until smart watches battery life are measured in years, I wont buy one.
Ok. Can you elaborate? Why is that a requirement for a watch? You plan on being away from electrical outlets for years at a time?
I'm sure there are some out there than go on wilderness expeditions or whatnot, but for most of us posting on slashdot regularly, we sleep somewhere where you already plug your phone into a charger every night anyway... so why is it a problem to put your phone onto something like this on your night stand?
