If tablets, phones, games and electric cars aren’t enough to pique our fickle appetites for stuff, the latest reason to convince you that you have too much money in your pocket, is the so-called smart watch. What a profound waste of money, effort and time.
Where is it written that we need such a thing as a smart watch? Who researched this issue and convinced anyone that they need to design and manufacture something so utterly useless? For most of these things, you can’t even tell the time.
Right now, consumers can acquire cell phones which enable users to sharpen # 2 Eberhard pencils, not to mention the ability to let your dog out to relieve itself, whilst you toil away at the office…assuming you’re not one of the privileged few who work from home. In that case, you wouldn’t need the doggy app , but you’d get it anyway…because it’s available.
Call me old fashion, but I simply need a phone to make phone calls…not reset the temperature in my house or mow the lawn. I’m an adult. I’m married. I have children, I have grandchildren.
I’ll admit…I have a flat screen TV and a cell phone with a QWERTY keyboard. I also own a watch…one which tells time, digitally. I don’t need a $300 watch which enables me to call my wife or text to my grandson. I don’t need a watch to “watch” the TV program I missed last evening. I wear a watch in the event I should like to know what time it is. Of course, my cell phone tells me the time too, but I have to turn it on.
My bet, is that the so-called smart watch will be a short-lived fad…which will quickly fade away…as it should.
