I got a pebble time. I like it. Battery life is a week though, not 18 fucking hours like the apple watch.
But is it accurate and do you have to be tied to an iPhone? I had an accurate and precise watch in the 70's.

I also swap between my TAG and a Raymond Weil dependent on what I'm wearing.

Yes it's accurate, whats the bloody point otherwise? I've got it tied to a samsung s6.
Lets not joke around though, it's a screen extender for your phone. Range is good. I've had the watch tell me that someones phoning when I've left the phone on a different floor. Still limited by the Universal Law that if you run to answer your phone, it's going to divert to voicemail as soon as you pick the sodding thing up though....

This post has finally given me the willpower to remove and order a replacement battery for my Skagan watch.

My problem with the Apple Watch is the battery life and the cost. Wearables are a non-starter for me until battery tech improves and Apple takes a ridiculous premium on the watch even considering R&D and etc.

Conceptually I don't think they are very useful but I admit I am not the target market of the product.

He makes a perfectly valid point and all you can do is defend yourself by attacking him. It's most definitely not his intelligence in question. Just because you're a sucker and you know it don't take it out on other people.

Oh, I'm sorry. Did I annoy you by calling out your friend and his biased opinion? That's fine by me - it'll help you bitch and moan about a watch and the stupidity of those who buy them all night long. Enjoy!

Now that their utility is very easily displaced by our mobile phones, watches have become even bigger status symbols (as well as jewelry) then ever before.

So taking into consideration that an iWatch doesn't even work without an iPhone, and needs regular charging (unlike most regular watches), what does an iWatch say about a person who wears one? That's a rhetorical question, and Ill end my part in this discussion on that note.

Taking into consideration the function of a phone as a watch is akin to a pocket watch which was replaced by a wrist watch, and that a phone typically needs to be charged daily like an Apple Watch, and the name iWatch doesn't actually exist, what does all of this say about the intelligence of InBlack?

That's a rhetorical question too.

Don't think the article is dumb, pretty much tells you that most of the challenged people that bought them really have no use for the watches that they don't get from their phone.

I have a couple stupid friends that bought them and guess what they both stopped wearing them because on top of being not very useful, they are ugly to boot.

a watch that needs charging so regularly is just pointless.  



Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.

I have no problem with people who don't like watches. I do, personally. I like quickly glancing to see the time (that's accurate) and maybe a few other things like the date... or in this case, a message.

I'm certainly not the only one, but I haven't wanted to wear a watch since I was in grade school. The big Timex of the time were too dang clunky to have on while using the keyboards, and who the heck needs a clock when they have games to be playing?

I certainly haven't had the desire for a watch since I've grown up - every screen I look at, everywhere I go, already tells me the time, from the microwave to the computer - keep yer watches. Or maybe... We don't need no stinkin' watches!

Might explain why I think Dick Tracy is dumb crap also, ugh.

Well I have an Apple watch for a start. I like it a lot. Apple have a long way to go with them, but they're a really good watch.

That said, that's just a clickbait article. From the millions that have bought Apple watches finding a bunch of people who didn't like them is a no brainer. And, what else are they going to say? It's dumb.
