Sexy, but ultimately this will fly or die based on the adoption from the developer community. And it's going to be hard to compete against the Apple Watch, imho.

@rrhoover I think there's a lot of ideas like that. Do you just avoid those type of ideas and leave it to the companies that have the budget to pull it off? It almost seems like you need a google, apple, etc to pull off building giant developer communities, but sometimes those products are the ones with the most room for innovation. A technology that comes to mind is augmented reality with things like the touch pico and jibo. I'd love to see more startups get in on that, but how can you create a relevant community around it? Just an issue I've noticed in the startup world.

It looks a lot like some of the 3rd party Apple Watch concepts from awhile back. Agree on the need for adoption from the developer community. I think what's really going to hurt them is the launch date - they're shooting for EoY which means it'll more than likely launch in early '16. The Apple Watch will have already been out in the market for ~9 months or so, not to mention the iterations that'll come from other brands as a result of the AW. So, good chance it'll already be obsolete at launch...but I pre-ordered just in case ;-)
