iWatch or Apple Watch News? Sound the Snooze Alarm…

Alas, I was hoping the vaunted iWatch or the recently announced Apple Watch would be a standalone device. Can’t someone please get this tech right? The beauty of a wearable devices should be its simplicity–not the need to carry a phone AND a watch AND Bluetooth gear to function as a state-of-the-art device.

Let’s go for real hands-free, car-synced communication–no phone or phablet required. Or get a quick weather check with a flick of the wrist. A tight text or two without a dive into the pocket or purse.

The time, anyone?

 

Apple Watch specs: Due out in early 2015, cost $349, square clock face, two likely sizes. Low on style; Can use to pay at stores, otherwise not so groundbreaking compared to other cellphone-parasitic not-quite-smart-enough watches like the Samsung Galaxy Gear or Motorola’s Moto 360. I hear Samsung is working on a standalone this fall, but battery life is still the big question.*Sigh*
