Google smart watches barely compatible with Android

Thinking of buying one of Google’s new smart watches? If you are, be prepared to splash out on a new phone as well.

According to Tech Crunch Less Than 1/4 Of Android Phones Work With Google’s New Smart watches.

Can you imagine Apple launching a new device that could only work with a tiny fraction of iPhones?

This is why I am lukewarm about Android. Geeks might not have a problem with the inconsistencies and incompatibilities that plague planet Android. For everyone else it’s just hard work.

It’s also why I’m wary of smart watches. They are still ugly, physically clumsy and offer little functionality. All those things may yet change, but for now they are bleeding edge technology.
