'Wearable tech' is not a good look. No matter how classy Apple try to make the Apple Watch, ultimately it is still a gadget, and a watch should not be a gadget – it should be a classic, timeless (ironically!) piece of jewellery.
My own watch was a twenty-first birthday present from my Grandmother. It is a square-faced analogue Armani watch with a black leather strap, and I wear it every day. I don't need apps and other techery on my watch – I already have that stuff on my laptop, and on my phone – and I'd rather wear a timepiece which is simple, elegant and beautiful, and which won't be obsolete within five years.
What's next? Touch-screen brogues? Cufflinks with Bluetooth? (No, don't tell me that already exists…?!)
