Nowadays you can go to a lot less effort proving the iPhone is still somewhere within the vicinity of you.

    [@JT] You’re welcome JT, I will do my best to keep them coming. If you can afford it, go for it! I think anytime you see a box for $19.99, things are probably a little bit overpriced. However, I don’t see them as a gimmick. I’d be surprised if a smartwatch doesn’t eventually replace a traditional watch for many.
