Why I Gave My Daughter My Smartwatch

I asked if she wanted my smartwatch and received a quick "Yes!!!"

Not that the watch didn't have advantages. It was handy with phone calls and I found that to be helpful.

But I got tired of being superconnected. There is a fine line between connections and interruptions.

So I'm back to being Old School. The beloved Seiko wristwatch is packed away somewhere during our remodeling so, in a nod of amusement to my friend - the hyper-connected FutureLawyer - I got the above.

Takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

At least you gave it a try....I never had one but can imagine how it could be a real distracter. Casio G shock, (not one of the super bulky ones) durable, and receives the signal for timekeeping every morning.

I can understand the appeal of the smartwatches but am in search of what might be called detached focus.

Michael, you gotta do what you gotta do. :-)

As a result, I wrote a best-seller this afternoon. Scientific breakthroughs await.
