    While it’s only a niche thing, there’s the question which these articles don’t address, regarding how well wearable tech works when the wearer isn’t in the vicinity of their smartphone.

    I’m not a runner, cyclist or person generally disposed toward physical exercise, so I don’t know how inconvenient it is for someone to have their ‘phone on them when they are exercising (though swimming has its obvious issues), but I do occasionally work in buildings where ‘phones have to be handed in at the door. I also used to wear a Junghans watch which was radio-synchronised to the Caesium timebase in Braunschwieg – while it had terrible reliability issues, it transpired that I also had to hand it in when working in certain kinds of buildings, because the security staff didn’t like the fact that it had a long-range radio receiver in it. Wearables would clearly have to be handed in, on entering such places, along with the ‘phones they rely on.

    These days, I suggest in semi-jest that you’ll eventually be able to have a fair guess as to whether someone works somewhere security-sensitive, as we’ll all wear clockwork watches ;-) .
