    These gadgets might get their market pie for various consumers. Even I might also use with curiosity.
    But I am thinking few points strongly – With present wrist watches, we dont take any headache of recharging daily. To help users to not make manual winding, Swiss makers had progressive thoughts in design – automatic self winding watch which wound automatically as a result of natural motion of arm which provides reqd energy to run the watch mechanism. Then Quartz came and made revolution. Even for digital watches, watchmaker introduced solar cells.

    Now for these SMARTWATCHES, I’m wondering how users will change their habit( and take headache) to strap out daily to recharge for screen resolutions, wifi, net, running limited apps n activities! Demand for cell power will b very high. Even if they design to charge it while working, ppl might make a mess often while standing up fast from working or leisure postures while smartwatch wrapped in arm n charging simultaneously.
