Can a SmartWatch really wean us off our Smartphones as the Smartphones weaned us off our laptop computers? Certainly, many people no longer wear watches, using their Smartphones instead. One win for a SmartWatch. The bigger issue is connectivity. If BlueTooth is the channel then the SmartPhone needs to be nearby. What is the benefit of the SmartWatch with an (even) smaller display? I think stand alone WiFi connectivity will be needed before it has a chance.
