Re: iWatch?

said by Kearnstd:

I think Google Glass will be far superior to any iWatch. People in the market for a watch already have one, And with what Apple would likely charge for a watch they could likely get a high quality model from an established and proven watchmaker. And more importantly, A traditional watch is take it off at night, put it back on in the morning and no "Shit I forgot to charge my watch."

However I think the important thing for Google Glass is that it is pushing forward what wearable computing will be about and that is augmented reality.

I have several watches that charge themselves (and I mean electrically, not automatic watches). And they can sit in a drawer for 6 months before they need some kind of light to recharge again. No, they are not using BT radios, etc (although some do use a radio to pick up on the atomic clock signals) but still... The power argument of this need not be an issue.
