Android smartwatch coming next month; watch will be compatible with Android phones

0. phoneArena 02 Nov 2013, 14:42 posted on

Android is more than just an operating system; a small company named Android has been turning out watches for years which makes them perfectly named to jump on the smartwatch craze. Next month, Android will introduce its new smartwatch which will hook up with an Android phone. Based on the video below, which shows the watch paired with the Samsung Galaxy S4, the device will make and take phone calls, play your music, and record a voice memo...

No, I don't need it, at least such is my opinion.

Who needs a watch at all? That's what my phone is for. It is my watch. Personally, I think rolex's are for douches. I mean if you want to show you have a small d!ck with lots of money, they are great. But for a person that is secure in their status, be it poor or rich, rolex's are pointless.

I don't really see a need for a SMART watch, but was taught that a man should always wear a watch. It shows he's punctual and respectful of time (his own and others). But I don't expect others to share that same view, and I'm just old school like that. I think a nice watch great to have because cellphone batteries die all the time. They also look nice too.

I can see that logic, but it is very flawed. I am always on time. I actually have anxiety over being late. I'm usually to work like 30 mins early. So I just hope people don't view everyone that refuses to wear a watch in that light. I personally just hate all jewelry. I think the only 2 pieces of jewelry I still own are the wedding ring for when my fiance and I finally get married, and my class ring from HS. (The later I didn't buy, nor do I hold sentimental value of, just have no reason to get rid of it.)

Lol! Nah, I think it's just an old school thing. I don't think it's totally accurate either, but there was no way I was going to be the one to tell that to my dad, lol. It was just one of those things your dad tells you and you figure you'll just go along with it until you turn 18. But here I am, 20 years later and can't go anywhere without a watch.

More importantly, congratulations on getting engaged!!!

Thanks, but I've been engaged for 7 years now. That's why it is more of a running joke now. Life gets in the way of getting married. I know what you mean about what your parents saying sticking with you forever. I think that is why I have anxiety over being late.

Making a phone call with a smartwatch will be as irritating as someone talking next to you on speakerphone and acting like you're the one all up in their business.

I already have an accessory to make phone calls or read the time. I'm not buying an accessory for my accessory, the whole smartwatch thing is ridiculous unless the smartwatch itself can replace the smartphone which I doubt

I think the smart glass could eventually replace the phone, or be a nice companion to it. But the watches are just plain dumb. Like you said, it is an accessory to an accessory. WTF? What next, smart rings?

Like you said, in a couple of years will be buying a smart-ring for our smartwatch that works with our smartphones. We don't need more tech to walk with us and I agree with you, Smart glasses are a very promising replacement for our phones
