    Interesting ideas in Furbo. I agree with the problems about making a watch. The style issue is a challenge. But the presence of these fit fuel bands shows people are willing to wear an non-stylistic band on their wrist. But, I think I may be overestimating the difficulty of watch styling. Prior to my current job, I hadn't worn a watch in several years, save for going out on the weekend. My palm pilot and then phone had become my phone. I only have a daily watch now because I can't take my phone to work. If I had a normal job, I'd consider a tech-watch-thingy that made it easier to get meeting reminders and emails and texts. It doesn't have to be jewelry. Just not ugly; as attractive as the iPhone.

    Huh. How does it track hydration levels? Do they infer it from activity and blood-levels; or maybe you have to enter every drink you have. I hope they don't further perpetuate the myth of 8 glasses of water a day.

    If it's owned by Google, Facebook, or Twitter, then definitely.
    If it's owned by Apple, nope.

    Coming from a small, independent developer...who knows? Depends on who they sell out to.
