    2010 when iPad made its debut, Tablets were the hottest trend. Every manufacturer wanted a share of the pie. It was going well till 2012-13 but come 14 and the tablets have slowed down considerably.
    Considering tablets didn’t have much of a productive usage compared to Laptops despite having high price, this is quite an achievement. Smartwatch won’t even last half that long unless the price is kept low and the battery backup can be upped considerably. None of these looks possible unless it starts shipping with monochrome display like Pebbel in which case most will be like “look at the toy”. Instead manufacturers look to add more features and they would have had Google not intervened and made Android Wear closed source (kind of).
    The only thing that looks +ve ATM is the health band or fitness tracker. It can last for several days on a single charge, looks trendy and doesn’t cost kidney and a liver to own.
