Since cell phones have already undermined the usability of watches by acting as time-telling devices, today’s ‘tech’ generation feels that wrist watches are a mere adornment and serve no practical purpose. However, innovators and renowned companies like Apple, Nick and Sony very soon will come up with smart watches that will connect to the smart phones and will enable you to do multi-task, like for instance, chat, send text messages and do other interesting things. These watches will eliminate the need of taking your Smart phone out of your pocket or bag. They will be super informative and much more advanced than G-shock watches or the expensive chronometer. The big companies’ new smart strategy of striking a balance between advanced technology and fashion is sure to entice the mass market, especially the young generation.
