Google to intro a smartwatch indeed, as well as new Gmail and Maps interfaces

The premise, however, is for the watch to have similar features to Google Glass. “Functionality will be very much like Glass,” claimed the insiders.
interface updates for the famed Maps and Gmail apps, too, in line with what it's been doing to the desktop versions, namely full screen appearance with floating bars, and hidden menus for Gmail, swipable from the left. Google I/O is just around the corner, so we will know more on Wednesday.It is not only hardware, though - Google is prepping

Meh. I have serious doubt about the need for smart watches. They're trying to sell us on a product we're not asking for. I don't think you can fairly compare this to smartphones (an evolution of PDAs) or tablets (a hybrid of laptops and smartphones).

I know, right! It's like when Apple started making 4g phones and then 3 years later....Samsung has 4g. Or when Apple started using pull down notifications...and then 3 years later...her comes Samsung. Or when Apple let you answer a call with an SMS and of course Samsung had to copy. Oh wait, maybe I've got that backwards.

I haven't worn a watch since 2001 due to the fact I found no need since I had my phone with me at all times. However, I wouldn't mind checking out the Google Watch, just to see what it has to offer. Even if it has to be tethered to my phone to work, it could be cool. I'll make a judgement once I actually see it, and use it instead of saying something is better now.
