For me, smartwatches are yet to really grab my interest. They seem unnecessary. Things like the newly revealed Omate X may look cool, but I'm not sure I will be likely to purchase a smartwatch until I think they do something really interesting. The Moto 360, while it looks nice, still seems to lack something. I don't know, what are your thoughts on smartwatches?

I think Smart Android Phone watch is very cool as well. I think it is very novel and convenient when I first heard of it. So immediately I got one for myself. It keeps me always hands-off. I like it. I got on from kingsbuying.com. If you are interested in, you can search it and give it a look at.

I wasn't really interested previously, but then I used a few and kind of liked certain aspects of them - but not all.

I think the smartwatches that have the functionality and also look good will do a lot better than the ugly functional ones. But we'll have to wait another couple of weeks to see...

I dont know why but I feel stupid talking to my phone and I dont want it to happen with the watch too so I am not interested. If at all I buy a smartwatch, it will be Moto 360 v2 or later (next year maybe). I dont know what smartwatches are missing but they definitely are missing something.

So many techonologies these days, but I think a smartphone is enough!! I still like to stick with classical watch comparing to smart watch simply because I think it looks way better!

I find the current android wear sdk to be pretty limited, so maybe as somebody else said, in the future in 1-2 years maybe we'll have more capable smartwatches.

Hi Scott,

I collect watches and I love tech but as far as I'm concerned smartwatches are a complete waste of money.

Honestly what can a smartwatch do that any half decent smartphone can't run circles around?

I'm completely with you. It is tech for the sake of tech, and this is something that really annoys me. Instead of focusing on stereoscopic 3D smartphones with curved displays which fire lasers, just make a smartphone that works well at a fair price. This is far more interesting to me, and it's why I'm such a strong supporter of Motorola smartphones.

I see it as the same with smartwatches, it's tech fetishism, and currently smartwatches are doing nothing for me.

Earlier I was not so interested to smart watch. I also thought that smart watch is unnecessary and useless. But recently I heard about Block Modular smart watch. It seems to me really innovative. Best part is as a user I would be able to create my own features.

I doubt people will need it in casual life because a smartphone in the pocket can handle anything. However, Smartwatch will mainly work with people who wants special track of their health, diet, training regime, etc.

At the moment, buyers are most interested in the Samsung Gear (though the survey did not specify which Gear smartwatch), followed by the Apple Watch. UBS, however, believes this will change in Apple's favor once the Apple Watch is actually released in early 2015.

I think a smartwatch is like first cells, you don't need it until you have one. Then you can't live without it.

I agree with you. You won't feel the necessity of smart watch until you use it. Same thing happens with me. I was not so interested to smart watch but now I cant live without it. I am always looking for the latest features on my smart watch. That's why I am thinking about having a Modular smart watch.
