Thinking of buying a new Google smartwatch? If you are, be prepared to splash out on a new phone as well. And not just any old phone.

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 one reason 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 the smart watch. They are still ugly, physically clumsy and offer little functionality. All those things may yet change, but for now they are bleeding edge technology.
