Re: iWatch?

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.

People who enjoy watches often have more than one, just like people who enjoy Apple products tend to have several. I still wear one of my old Swatches from the '80s and I probably still have an old Mickey Mouse watch somewhere around the house. It's not about the cost or even function but more about collecting and wearing interesting accessories.
