Not many people wear a watch anymore since most of us carry a smart phone of some sort.
The watch has become an accessory of style more than practicality.
Odd considering there was a time when we would not be caught dead without a watch, especially during business hours.
Now what we cannot be caught dead without, is our smart phone.
Smart phones have become worse than heroine for those who are addicted, and even essential for those who couldn’t care less.
So it only seems ‘smart’ to combine the two, after all, the art of technology is to make it smaller.
Get ready for the iWatch and Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
It’s like an old Dick Tracy comic book has come alive! Except they look more like the big digital watches of the 70’s.
For me this is brilliant. I hate carrying things.
My biggest issue with smart phones is carrying them around. No I don’t have fancy enough pants to wear one of those belt holsters.
Now I can just strap it to my wrist and pretend I’m James Bond.
Or simply duck tape the one I have, and save the money and time in line….
I’m Scott Thompson.
