I agree with not today. But in 10 years? They are saying 2014 projected as a breakthrough year for smartwatches. Once upon a time someone told me about Moore's law and it really is fascinating and could be applied to smartwatches.
For example, the first touchscreen phone was the IBM Simon Personal Communicator released in 1994:
Even though that was 20 years ago, a lot of the innovation and competition that pushed smartphones to become what they are today only happened in the last 7 years.
Look at the ugliest smartwatch ever - IBM WatchPad from 2000:
I believe we are entering the period where smartwatches will break through. The IBM Watchpad is 13 years old. Smartphones took 20 years to become what they are, that leaves us with the next 7 years. Will history repeat itself? And will companies like Google and Apple push the limits of innovation to create fierce competition for your wrist?
There's a lot of pockets out there for a phone. And there's also just as many wrists!
