Everyone Is Making A SmartWatch.
News has come to light recently that Microsoft is working on a smartwatch If you’re keeping tabs, that’s Apple, Samsung, Google, and now Microsoft… all working on a smartwatch or we at least have strong indicators that they are. This would make sense if the smartwatch had a proven history of success… but they don’t.
Not only do they not have a strong lineage, they don’t even have a device to tout as a benchmark. Smartwatches have historically fallen flat on their face, never achieving any kind of commercial success. Even those, like the Motorola MOTOACTV (which was pretty good), were dismissed by consumers. If we’re not keen on wearing a smartwatch, why is everyone trying to make one?
