Weight and convenience ?
WaqasAltaf   12/18/2013 10:56:29 AM

Jessica, I believe smart watches have a lot of potential but there are few reservations that people might have. Firstly, a large screen might not fit well on your wrist and even if it does, you will have to detach the watch from your wrist else it is difficult to imagine the usage. Secondly, the weight of the smart watch. Will it be light enough ?

A smart watch is a wrong choice
prabhakar_deosthali   12/18/2013 2:11:09 AM

In my opinion, a wrist watch as a smart device is a wrong choice.

The reasons are

1. Its display cannot be made larger as it has to be accommodated on the wrist.

2. For looking at the wrist watch a person's attention is totally distracted for that moment. This is especially dangerous for those driving their vehicles.

3. It's battery size and hence capacity will also be limited , requiring frequent recharging.

4. A smart wearable watch will have to depend upon the smart phone or a werable display device for its display.


Smart watch may find applications like health monitoring of the person wearing it, or performance monitoring of a sports person while he is participating ( racing, badminton, tennis and all sort of field games)
