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.
