  1. quite a variety of watch styles – some look pretty good, especially the sport versions …

    have heard the assumption is people will charge nightly …

    being an adjunct to the ‘phone sounds good to me, lift hand to see time would be better than having to do what we do to the ‘phone, plus all the other functions …

    didn’t expect to be interested, but maybe …

  2. Just imagine the possibilities for home automation… I can’t wait to see what developers are going to do with it.
