We do need it actually. For bragging rights. /s

Gotta be a watch fan to appreciate i guess. For me, its pointless, all of 'em. But i don't and have never worn watches to begin with.

This has to happen eventually, if other competitors are doing the same. Nothing surprising.

Unless a holographic screen pops up, I'll prefer wearing my old mechanical watch from the Soviet Union.
Watches are for looking at the time, they should not be an extension of my smartphone, otherwise I'm going to be more distracted more than most ADHD patients.

So watches and glasses are next for us, hope they'll be useful and offers good stuff.

No it's not. Smartwatches have been announced/produced/sold well before any rumor that Apple was building one. You are apparently an iSh33p. GTFO
