Paul, I am with you. I think it would be great to have a watch that is connected to the phone. As I keep my phone either in my pocket or in my belt holster, it's far more convenient to just glance at my wrist for incoming alerts rather than to have to pull out a device. Glad I didn't jump on Pebble now knowing that Apple and Samsung are racing to market their own watches. It should be very interesting over the next year to see what these companies come up with.
