What you actually want to do is not put your phone on the 'inside' of your "CR" gear.
If that's not an option, then I suspect neither is farting around with a wrist-computer.
Being serious. I'm a Pebble user and the main service it provides is putting your phone notifications on your wrist - it lets you break the pavlovian response of looking at your phone everytime it goes 'buzz'
However, it pretty much assumes that when you glance at your wrist and determine it's important, you get out your phone to resolve whatever.
Depending on your watch of choice, your interaction scope may vary - but they all assume if you need to offer a proper response to whatever, you get out your phone - a smartwatch isn't for you sir.
