Hate to be a party crasher but, what is so fascinating about a smartwatch? Answer calls and SMS, really? I can't see a full qwerty on a device that small so what's it going to be, a T9? Isn't that the reason we moved away from flip phones, to enjoy larger screens, full keyboards?
I think it would be cool to look like **** Tracy, but only for a minute.
edit: Wow, the censors didn't like Richard's name.
The idea of a smartwatch is for notifications and controlling the phone; so that you can be more subtle with them. If your phone is on silent and you get a message, you can quickly look at your watch instead of your phone (and being rude to say a date, in class or in a movie cinema or something); if you get a call you can keep your phone on silent (and save the embarrassingly loud ringtone) and decline easily from your watch. If you're listening to music (this is probably what I would find the most useful) you can also have controls over your music on your watch instead of having to pull out your phone every time. I'd agree with you and say that having a qwerty on a watch is a bit silly, but what I've said above is what I see a smartwatch for anyways
