Wristwatches, Reimagined – Will Young Shoppers Care?: This is kinda cool, but who really wears a watch anymore? I mean, people under, say, 50. I think they’re reaching with this one.
This version has Bluetooth, but the long-term vision is to give it the wireless capability to be the hub of every Internet-ready portable device you own — phone, laptop, tablet. The MetaWatch would be “the mobile Wi-Fi hotspot on your wrist,” Mr. McKinney said in the presentation.
[…] able to notify the wearer, for example, “when you’ve got 4 more e-mails, 3 Facebook updates and 10 Tweets.” He said buttons on the watch could be programmed to dispatch canned responses.
