I'm on the fence with smartwatches. If I would have to charge my watch as often as I charge my phone, I'm not too sure I would purchase one.

I can't figure out why a 'smart watch' would be useful. I guess it means that you don't have to take your phone out of your pocket to have access to a limited set of functions, but having to wear a watch seems like more of a burden than having to take my phone out of my pocket. And if I need to answer a call I can't use the watch either. There must be some use case that I'm not thinking of. I guess as a shiny fashion accessory it makes sense. Am I missing something?

You can answer calls, which would be extremely useful if you have a blue tooth headset on, especially when you are engaged in a task that makes it inconvenient to pull out your phone

I will only get a smart watch if its not like the 80s version of a calc watch and feel like a total nerd wearing one. Its not easy to come up with the next big thing but like the iPad it had plenty of doubters and see how that turned out.

I can't help it.
Can it play Crysis 3?
Truly, a lot of people that wear watches, pay big bucks for them and switch them to match what they are doing or wearing.
These watches need to come in a wide array of designs and styles to be widely excepted. So some alliances with quality designers is in order. Maybe have it look like a nice watch until a notification or call comes in then the transparent crystal switches to a status screen and the info side scrolls.
