The revolution of the SmartPhone was to smoothly integrate multiple functions into a single portable device with the ability to add new APPs to meet new needs. We don't need multiple smart watches for different functions.
In last decade or so, APPLE has been able to bring the technology closer to users simply because of the intuitive interface. They delivered quality products with amazing reliability. Hope that they could come up with a smartwatch which can augment smartphone functions rather than just be another interface of smartphone.
I hope they make smart wearables something like bracelets for kids. And of course it must be authorised and allowed by school authorities. Parents can get details of the kid well being. And then of course one can think of Barbie or Dora or Diego kind of accessories for holiday times.
