Well Samsung has done it, released an actual smartphone you wear on your wrist. An actual chronocom. And some people are already reviewing it's pros and cons.
In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Yeah, I member seeing Penny use one in Inspector Gadget. She also had a miniaturized computer that look the form of a book. Someone should totally invent something like that too. Wink

Errr... Forget having a computer you can place comfortably on your lap. I want a goddamn Madmobile! That armed combo-car/sub/jet was &%$#ing pimp!!! You own the road in that ride!

first models of anything are always a little well tricky but I think the one thing which will hold it back will be the small screen size. But let's see where it goes.
Sounds like a great job but where did you say we had to go?

And the fact that it's not a stand alone device.  It is just a display for your smartphone.

There is a Samsung commercial on HULU showing this. A family is out on Halloween, dressed in Star Wars genre, and a kid dressed as Luke in an X-Wing looks at his watch, a friend tells him not to go to one house. The guy is handing out floss - he's a dentist.

Don't these watch things still just interface with your phone via bluetooth... as in they don't do anything cool without the phone doing all the heavy lifting?

I suppose it really marketing hype and you are right about the phone doing the heavying lifting but sooner or latter, down the road a real chronocom will appear.

The phone will appear when we solve the battery problem.  We don't have a battery with enough power density to power a phone in that small a size.
