The term Smart phones and Smart watches is really a misnomer, at least at present. Digital assistant is exactly what these gadgets are right now. But seeing the clarity of vision of the tech companies, my hopes are high. Future seems exciting!
Hailey, yes you have a point. Because of the handbag / clutch factor, women are more likely to carry 2 devices. For men, trousers can't afford two devices :) There are other things to keep in the pockets too.
@Waqas, i think there's a gender difference there. I carry multiple devcies but I also can carry a bag to carry my devices. I still wear a watch (not one of these techie things but standard analog)--my husband though hasn't work one in years. he alwas hs his phone. for me, digging around in my bag every time i nee the time is too inconvenient.
Carrying two devices at a time won't work for long. One has to give way to another. I believe watches might get a lot smarter but in the end, smartphones will prevail. Having a four inch screen on your wrist doesn't sound too cool.
@FlyingScot, Smart watches are still a new concept, and they will become better in time. Most smart watches are power hungry, however with better battery designs coming up that ties better power management, smart watches will run for longer period of time. Some smart watches are being tested for working by absorbing body heat. Let's see how that turns out to be.
