Apple-Google Fashion Watch to Keep Us Connected

Would you wear a computer I-watch?

Not for nothing, but Boomers have a hard time reading the small type on ipods. Yes, yes, I know you can make the screen expand, but who would want to wear an I-watch t? The type would be so hard to read. I love watches and have about 5. But, I buy watches for their beauty and function. I like that I can read the time and date. It acts like a piece of jewelry and barely weigh anything.

I can't imagine how anyone, besides a bunch of 10-16 year olds interested in such a garrish watch. I suppose a contestant from Project Run Way could use it as a Tech-Fashion design imspiration.

Oh, have you seen those excercise watches by Garmin? Runners use them and they act like mini computers recording a runners mileage and calories burned. The watches cost approximately $200.00, but I think they are bulky and ugly.

I definitely do not want anyone driving a car to try reading the emails/texts from their Apple-Google fashion watch. Imagine the accidents? Insurance companies will triple the coverage for anyone wearing one of those gadgets. Ahh, then there is the cost of owning one. A watch collector would spend $500.00 and up for a Movado, Tag Heuer, Rolex and or Ebel. They are beautiful time peices. They keep their values. We all know anything with a hard drive drops in value, so what would make anyone want to drop $200.00 for something that will be worth half in 3 months. As a parent, I struggle enough with my kids always begging for a newer phone. My answer in "NO, YOU DO NOT NEED A SMART PHONE." I do not want to pay for the data package, I can't imagine any parent willing to pay for a data package on a watch for their children; that is just ludicrious. I don't know about your kids, but they lose things all the time. Imagine your kids losing a $500.00 watch! Apple and Google want us to stay connected, but at what cost? There are definitely health concerns wearing such an expensive, gadget.

What about its weight. I can see people developing carpal tunnel because they can't type on the keyboard because of their tech watch. Will this watch also take pictures and play music?

As it is we are all addicted to our cell phones because we all look forward to the texts and emails. Our phones have become an appendage in my opinion. We can't function with out them. I wish Apple-Google would come up with a something less expensive to families, something where we can program our homes like a smart house to make our lives easier.

Apple-Google you have my attention, just make it cost effective, give a me a real reason to want to stay connected and make something that rises in value.
