Smart Watches

The Guardian has a piece on developments in the Smart Watch world.

Personally I think people have Smart Watches the wrong way around. They think that watches are going to be an extra screen for mobile phones.

To me, the biggest problem with the device swarm, particularly Ubuntu's idea that your phone becomes your main computer, but portable, is that it's just so damned easy to lose it.

To me, the obvious move is to use the watch as the main processor / storage for a mobile computer (how often do you lose your watch?) and use a tablet as a dumb input / output device.

(I guess there are battery problems though.)
