Well, I don't have any friends that wear watches. Maybe one or two. I personally think the phone is a good form factor. I can check it easily for notifications, for the time, for directions, for anything. And when I don't want it, it's out the way.

I'm very skeptical of wearables at this point. If they all need phones, what's the point? If I have something in my pocket that does what I want 100x better than this thing on my wrist or face, why am I going to bother? I just can't find the point of it at all. My phone lives with me - it takes good pictures, it notifies me of everything that I want, and I -need- it. Why should I add another device that just duplicates it in an inferior way?
