Like, this second. Do you even wear one? Is it "smart", whatever you consider that to mean?
With a generation of Android-powered wearables getting to grips with what they can do, performance sportswear firms strapping vital data to our limbs and the headline-grabbing Apple Watch approaching strap-up time, there's going to be a whole lot more tech talk about the battle for our wrists in the coming months. But where are we right now? What do you look for in an arm-mounted pal?
I've personally always dabbled with the most silly of timepieces, growing up like so many on a diet of Dick Tracy and cheap plastic. From basic calculator watches to a Casio Heli-Fighter I found in my local park when I was in primary school, on which you can play a very effective two-button version of cod-Harrier Attack on the fly, anything that bleeps or creaks has found a way on to my wrist.
A Nixon Dork that spits out numbers at a press, a Mutewatch that subtly blinks the time at you, a Will Alsop for Alessi architectural LCD cuff, or a Tokyoflash Kisai that is so over-designed it's almost unreadable.
So I should, by all the rights of tech, be all over smartwatches, but I'm not so far. Gerald may have upgraded his Boba Fett flip-top watch to an LG G Watch R, but its sheer G-Shock-topping size is a problem for me. I'm a fan of the Withings Activité in how refined it looks, and its streamlined use, but it's pricey for what is a pretty large halfway house between fashion and function. So at the moment I tend to stick to London brand Uniform Wares, despite the only smarts being in looks and mechanisms.
Have you embraced smartwatches? Are you a style icon with wads in your back pocket who will only go classic and traditional? When you glance at your wrist do you just see skin, hairs and dreams? Upload a snap and let us know below…
