That's... just foolish.

This must be one of the silliest ideas I've seen yet as regards smart-watches.

I can't say that I've ever thought to myself "Gee, I wish I could have uncomfortable, lumpy things strapped to my wrist at every possible angle so I can never rest my arms on my desk".

I wear a watch - it's a Timex with a NATO band that I've rotated so that all the hardware is well up and away from any part of my arm that will touch anything else - it's the only way to fly, really.  I can't imagine wanting to encumber my wrist to that extent.

BUT: if it wasn't for the hilariously ludicrous $210 price tag, I could finally get a pair of watch bands sized for my <4-year-old children.  ...which is also something I have never actually found a need for.
