Submission + - Too Bad For A.I. Watch, Smartwatch Craze Is Fading Out (

jarold writes: After a huge disappointment with Samsung Galaxy Gear, it seems that the smartwatch craze is fading out. This is evident in the latest fundraising effort of another smartwatch wannabe A.I.Watch. The crowdfunding, through Indiegogo, started last September 25, 2013 and so far it has achieved barely $10,000. The project aims to raise at least $100,000.00.

Meanwhile, to avert negative reviews of Galaxy Gear, Samsung is heavily promoting its product. You might have seen the 10 full-page ads in the Friday editions of the Los Angeles Times, New York Times and Wall Street Journal. In Youtube, you can view trailers entitled “A Long Time Coming” and “Evolution” showing early incarnations of smartwatches in popular films and TV shows like Dick Tracy and Star Trek.
