Again, technology at its best. Smart watches are picking up pace and nowadays most smart watches use Bluetooth Low Energy. However, these smart watches are also used as fitness measurement gear. Cite: FitBit and Jawbone fitness products use smart watches or sensors incorporated in watches.

@ prabhakar, I agree with you on that. I feel smart watch would gain more recognition in sport and health monitoring devices.

I reckon smart watches wil not really tak eoff until they are much nicer looking (less clumsy) and less power hungry.  It is a real pain having to charge your watch every day and even worse when the display is so small to be renderred almost useless.

"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)"

Prabhakar, wrist watch is meant for knowing the tie and it's difficult to build more functionality to it. Quiet sometimes back LG had tries to embed mobile phone over wrist watch and it's an utter flop. Recently Samsung also tried with Samsung Gear, but not success as expected. Some other medical companies tried to embed BP & Diabetic (sugar) monitor mechanism through wrist watch and it also seems flop. So other than something related to time (stop watch, timer etc) may be difficult with wrist watch.

"Technology research firm Gartner considers a device a smart machine if it does things we thought only humans could do and has the ability to understand natural language, interact with humans, and learn. Devices like the smartwatch, smartphone, and wearables like Google Glass currently act as digital assistants, but they could become smart machines if they interact better with humans and learn to anticipate our needs"

Jesicca, there are some controversy in market about 'what is a smart device and how a device can be smart'. According to Gartner Smartphones is only digital assistance; then what is a Smartphone? For marketing, most of the manufactures/sellers are adding the word 'SMART' in front of all devices. I think still proper meaning & functionality for the word Smart to be well defined.

Prabharkar, I completely agree with your points but time will tell whether users will adopt them or not. I can't say for sure but my guess is that it won't be able to sideline the smartphones.
