It's hard to believe the rival numbers are accurate. I was at a Wal-Mart* waiting for the bathroom to open(janitor was cleaning) and just for fun decided to look at peoples wrists. Apple Watches everywhere I looked. There were at least 2 Apple Watches in my view at all times during the 5 minute wait). I even saw 3 teens at the self checkout and 2 had an Apple Watch but I couldn't see what the other was wearing but she had an iPhone and it looked like all 3 had a Watch. The only non-Apple Watches I saw were about 3 analog ones compared to about 10 Apple Watches. It's not uncommon in the States to see couples or groups of friends all with Apple Watches on.
Rarely do you see an android watch but sometimes you'll see a fitbit.
In my experience here is the watch popularity in the past 3 years:
1. Apple Watch
2. Analog Watches
4. Android spyware
P.S. Tim can't innovate Apple died with Steve Jobs the Watch is too expensive and Health is a gimmick yada yada.
*Another reason Wal-Mart is ignorant for not supporting ApplePay.

I think I'll wait until a model comes out that is hard to see. Better yet, it should be camouflaged to look like something common, eg, maybe a lightbulb (which would also provide the power if it was a real lightbulb in a socket.) But I wouldn't expect anything actually innovative like that to come from them.henrymelton said:I would have appreciated the following information: Bluetooth or WiFi and range of signal. And battery type and life.
I want to see these assistants understanding fairly basic home automation tasks better. I could go into my Hue or Nest app and set up a timer or a schedule but i want to be able to ask my assistant simply "Turn on the heating now and turn it off in 30 minutes" or "turn on the front light at 10pm for an hour" the more gear i get, the more i need a central management system that uses voice for ad hoc requests
Or maybe it's already possible. I mostly use Google home, have Alexa but don't use it and stopped using Siri

Available to an extremely small subset (ie. a couple hundred) people, who were already in a small subset of volunteer beta testers in a single city. Oh, and these "autonomous" cars still include "backup drivers". This "launch" sounds great for headlines, but is nowhere near being anything that is acceptable for prime time.
