What convenience does smart wearable bring to your life?

What you need to take with you is no longer the "stuff" like a mobile phone, because watches and bracelets may just have Internet access, and they are smaller, more portable and more low-key. With new technologies like holograms, you don't need heavy, high-tech hardware.

I will choose mobile over watches

watches might have internet but the screen is too small. and mobile offers a lot more functionality

I don't own one anymore.

The charging everyday was the pits. It only improved a little and instead of one thing to keep charged up now I had another. That and less to keep track of. Less is more.

I asked myself the same question and didn't go beyond considering a smart watch. A watch that has less than 24 hours battery life? Hmm, that's novel. A screen that is a struggle with my "three score and ten" eyes, even with stronger spectacles? Frustration in the making. My conclusion to your question, for me personally, nothing.

Mobile phones from the last two or three years don't have to be huge "fondleslabs" a handsize 5 inch is all I need and has infinitely more capability than a whole lot of wearables. K.I.S.S.

Your mileage may, of course, vary, in which case, go for it.

Sublime suburban chariot

High on style and technology, the 2019 Volvo XC90 is an incredibly satisfying everyday crossover.
