I believe this feature is more for corporate IT (the real administrators) rather than for individual administrators of the system. Although corporate IT has some control, it basically centers around limiting the installation and not the execution of applications. For home use, I'm sure this is going to be disabled quickly - just like the firewall.

I think they are simply an extension to your smartphone (in this case your iPhone). If you don't use your smartphone that much, then you obviously will not need a smartwatch like Apple's. What's also interesting is that many smartwatches also include bio/health monitors. Something your smartphone can't do on its own.

I think smart watches still have a lot to prove. We'll see if Apple entry in the market will make a difference. I think it will. Apple wouldn't be investing in something like this without knowing it has a winner but time will tell. For now I'm also sticking with no watch.

But a smart watch? It adds no actual value to its user, it is exclusively a way of telling the world that you are stupid and rich enough to not care about how you spend money; a fashion statement.

Why some people on tech boards so upset with smart watches? Is it because helps make technology available to the masses? I don't get it.

When it is not necessary to make a decision, it is necessary not to make a decision.
