"Smart" Watches

I tried a smartwatch for two days now and can safely say it is the first instance of technology I hate with a passion. Whereas before my smartphone was a means to an end, a way of quickly addressing things that come up, the smartwatch is an incessantly pestering device offering no resolution as I still need to go to my phone... It is a frustrating device that nags for my attention - making me feel like I am enslaved to a device that will not give me a moment of uninterrupted peace.

My wrist buzzes with every new thing that happens in the world. I've tweaked it to only the most important notifications... but still the result is a tethering to the connected world. I don't own my own attention anymore.

Suffice it to say: smartwatch for sale, great condition, barely used.
