The Sony SmartWatch Will Be Outlawed

Updated on July 4, 2012

First was the Smartphone, now the Smartwatch. I knew this would happen and just like how many states outlaw use of cell phones while driving, this will soon be there also.

As if you need this device. This watch informs you when you have a Twitter, Email or Facebook message and allows to read them on a 1.4 inch screen, which is easy to read. So there you have it, the Smartphone is in your pocket and the Smartwatch on the wrist telling you the same dumb texts or Facebook or Tweets to distract you while driving. One can easily see how this would interfere with the attention of a driver, as they mess with the device and glimpse at Email. Wrecks and rear-ends are coming. As soon as an accident occurs where the driver states, "Officer, I only glanced for a split second at my Smartwatch", government will amend the laws, and rightly so. Such a wasteful device to spent $120-150 on.

Soon, there will be Smartglasses, where you can access the Internet and do most of the same things, Google is creating one now. People, it is okay to be disconnected!

      Thanks, I am sure it will get outlawed while driving, no different than a cell phone.

      Sounds wonderful. I think I could see this 1.4 despite my bifocals. The video was really helpful

      I wish I had a freakin Sony Smartwatch while I was in SCHOOL! LOL teachers can take phones and computers away, but your watch during a test? I doubt it - that seams completely outrageous! "My teacher asked for my WATCH during class today and took it away from me" ---Please that won't happen and when it does im sure parents will be quick to defend their new "A" student that they are allowed to have watches.

      Goodness me a watch and next smartglasses! I agree how dangerous and, distracting these kind of items can be. I still see people using their mobiles when driving (against the UK law too). Or ladies doing their make-up! Both make me mad when I think just one second could end an innocent person's(s) life.

      Your article has provided some good information on these devices and no doubt the younger generation will all want a watch for Christmas!
