I ordered myself the G Watch smartwatch the very first day it was made available. Perhaps I was still starry eyed from the Google I/O presentations, which seemed to suggest this was some sort of revolutionary sort of new gadget that would help me navigate the city, order food, hail a taxi cab and more. Or maybe I just had my regular weekly rush of gadget lust. Either way, I didn’t think much about it, and the minute orders opened up on Google Play I picked up a G Watch smarwatch (I went in blind, choosing this model only because it had the larger battery than the Gear Live), and chose overnight delivery.

We’ve seen so many smartphones and tablets over the past few years that we need something else to get excited about. Something new—something that makes us pause, widen our eyes, and maybe even squeal with delight. That next thing, all big companies seem to agree, is the smartwatch.

As mobile gets more powerful (and more dull), we’re starting to see a big transition over to the wrist. Instead of a tiny computer in your pocket, it’s now adorned on your person, always visible and accessible when you need it. You already (probably) wear a watch, so why not make it a smartwatch? Leave your phone in your pocket, and take a step toward the future.
