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?
Like I alluded to, I like the idea of watches that are a smart phone ACCESSORY, but not that are essentially a full-blown Android device on their own. The ability to control your phone's functions (music control, stopwatch control, etc.) while being active, for example, is a decent feature of having a watch. But I'm with you - no need to add another Android device to my life that doesn't work with my phone.
