Interactive watches, smart-rings and now the full-tablet form factor hits the wrist. Will it be a hit or will it all be the next 3D-television hype that never took off seriously?
Hardware manufacturers are beginning to explore the wrist to the fullest. With Microsoft kicking off in the early years of this century, it's now Apple that tries to rule the wrist with their Apple Watch, leaving early innovators like Pebble and HotWatch behind.
One can wonder if the battle for the wrist will ever end. Personally I like my wrist to be silent, smooth and functional. I really like the Dutch watchmaker Christiaan van der Klaauw. These amazing astronomical mechanical watches will survive "empty" batteries a long time and will be a good investment too. Superb craftsmanship to tell time, tides and moon phases, what else does a man need?
