The Wristwatch Making a Comeback?
The wristwatch may be making a comeback. As more people abandon the watch for the phone for their time telling, tech companies are eying the wrist as the place for the next advancement in mobile computing. From the New York Times:
“The new wrist devices won’t replace smartphones, but rather connect to them. Most will continue the basic task of telling the time, while eliminating the need to dig a smartphone out of your pocket or purse. But they will provide far more information than the most advanced G-Shock watch available today, or the most expensive chronometer.”
Soon we may be reading our emails and Facebook on our wrists. Even making phone calls and controlling our stuff with remote apps.
Then we can say to out kids: ” In my day you had to use your hands to drive! These kids today with their car driving watched and baggy pants and hulu-a-hoops.”
