Smart Watches

As I have noted, I waste time on the Internet, especially BI. They sometimes plug their premium info product, which I never buy (gigaom and other blogs do this also). Recently, they teased their smart watch analysis by saying there is no killer app, a death knell, in theory for a new electronic product category.

But I see some flaws. I think the target demo for this thing is not young professionals, but rather middle aged parents, who would love to never fish out a credit card again, since they lose the card, their coffee, other purchases or a small child with every transaction triggered juggle. And I have been specifically begging for watch based payment since my first encounter with Disney's Magic Band.

Who will be right?

Time will tell. Sorta like a watch, smart or otherwise.
