Default Smart Watch

My wife has a note2, she loves it but its not pocketable. I'm sick and tired of messaging her and her not receiving the calls or txts because her phone is buried underneath a mountain of girl crap in her bag...

Thinking of getting her a smartwatch, just so that she's alerted to the fact I'm vying for her attention.

1) Do girly ones exist?
2) Are the current market contenders any good?

Cheers,

Bruce

I'd probably wait for the second generation. The handful of devices announced so far seem more like prototypes then useful devices. Will probably take some iteration before good hardware is available.

Tell her to stop wearing skinny jeans.

My phone is roughly the same size as a note 2 and I have it in a case, and I have it in my shorts pocket at work all the time. With loose fitting pants it should be pocketable.

Or strap it around her waist down in a fanny pack!!! You know how fashionable those are,...and so much cheaper than a smartwatch too.

The current crop of smart watches looks expensive, bulky and very limited in what they can do.

I would wait a year or 2 before committing to anything - even then, I'd always prefer my Tag.

Just like anything else, the first batch of these smart watches are for the most part prototypes as to what will be in store in years to come. I would definitely wait for the second or third wave to arrive, and if I were Bruce, I would ask Mrs. Banner to pay more attention to his phone calls.
