There is no doubt about it; many of us consider our smartphones as an integral part of our day to day lives. A lot of us are now very dependent on these devices, with them offering us with an incomparable level of convenience and functionality. So when tech and gadget manufacturers started to develop smartwatches, a multitude of consumers believed that they will be a bit like smartphones, thus; they were really excited and looked forward to their release.

Unfortunately though, as Digit has pointed out, most of what is available in the smartwatch product category can be considered as "disappointments." Yes, they look good and are functional, but the belief that they will be comparable to the technology behind smartphones has been shattered. Just to cite an example is the Moto 360. This particular smartwatch, while some like it, are just "likeable" enough. There is also the LG G Watch. The same goes for the Samsung Gear Live.

One of the greatest reasons as to why these devices are disappointing is because they have been designed in a way that you will find them good enough, but not really describe them as awesome or impressive. How come? First of all, they need another kind of technology in order for them to work. In this case, it is the user's smartphone. So if you do not have a smartphone or if you forgot to bring it along with you, it will render your smartwatch completely worthless.

All in all, as Belzich has cited, these are pretty interesting smartwear devices but are not really of great use to everyone. And since you also need to charge them on a daily basis, you may find having to charge more than just your smartphone tedious. Hopefully, Apple's smartwatch will be of much better quality and more advanced technology than the ones available today.
