It's creepy and pointless. Waste of money IMO

Until you have used one for a couple of weeks. Trust me, if you get a good enough deal on even a used one, buy it and try it out. If you don't like it, sell it.

I'd rather not sell my privacy for a measly watch. I will NEVER get a smartwatch in my LIFE unless its free

But a smartphone already sells out all your privacy.

Shut up Busyboy. you won't "sell [your] privacy for a measly watch" but you would gladly give it up for free....idiot....

Correct, I won't sell it. They will, just like FB is.

I'm willing to bet nobody cares about what you'd rather keep private.

I'm not really sure what sort of privacy you'd be selling for a smart watch that you haven't already sold for owning and operating a cell phone. If you're that worried about your privacy then I really hope you don't use the internet.

Of coarse it does. It's people like you that companies target, people who don't care about anything that really matters

I don't care if companies know how long I sleep, what I eat, what I do, etc. It's not like it's going to destroy my life or have any negative effect on it...

I'd rather have it private than public even though it technically won't "Destroy my Life".. Just my opinion

All jokes aside I think this is the government way of saying putting chips into people wrist won't fly will make a product and have major manufactures promote and sell it and that will make everyone want one so this is a way we can track and monitor people when the time comes that's my theory.

If you think "they" are out to get you and you are scared of the technological advancements of mankind, then you can go move to North Korea.

You sir need to calm down. People have their own opinions, respect that

@killgoretrouttime I was leaving my opinon chill out but one day all this tech will make people less communicative to each other but next time don't be so negative on someone point of view thank you.

ridiculous deserves ridicule, thank you.

There is one fundamental flaw in your theory. They already have chips inside everyone's pocket, it's called a smartphone. ;)

it reminds me of the SHIELD in the captain america the winter soldier , they have been tracking every single person in NY and they were all on the crosshair all the time ..
well i dont think its gonna happen , but in the end the major question comes WHAT IF ?

Who cares unless their doing something illegal, they can monitor me and all they want the only thing they will get is bored.

Exactly, I'd rather not be under constant surveillance, but it doesn't matter, because I don't have anything to hide.
