For women, yes, I see it being a problem to gain a large market share. For men, on the other hand, current smartwatch formfactors are not that different from watches like the G Shock, for example, which people currently wear just because they like it. I see it being inevitable.

Some Pebble experience

I've been using the Pebble for about 8 months, and it meets my needs, but I don't believe that niche will generate a large market.

During my work week I can glance at my watch and see whose email has just arrived without fumbling for my phone; I can even do this casually in a meeting, glance at my watch while driving (only to get a name) and see who is calling my phone before I yank it out of my pocket or off my belt. I have not tried most of the other apps, don't need them (yet).

 

Weekends the Pebble sits on the nightstand and some piece of Swiss timekeeping is used. Occasionaly I will look at my analog watch to see why my phone buzzed. LOL

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
