    How many people do you see with smartwatches?

    Smartwatches are definitely the current hot item in mobile tech, but is still in its infancy. I only know one other person who has a smartwatch. I haven't seen smartwatches on the wrists of any of my co-workers or friends. How often do you see folks wearing this new technology?

    We live in a large college town, so there are a lot. Of course the further removed from town the fewer, if any, we see.

    LOL, am I that one other person? I sit in a spot where there's QA and dev people around me, and oddly none of them have a smartwatch.

    I run a team of developers and only 1 of them has a pebble. He is interested in seeing my steel but sadly Friday is my last day so he might not chance.

    So far none besides myself. But maybe that is because I live in Michigan and it has been cold as hell for the past months and everyone is bundled up like eskimos so you can't see their wrists.

    One guy at work has one and I think someone at the local phone shop has a gear. Pretty rare apart from that.

    It's been a few months since I posted this thread and I'm still not seeing folks with smartwatches. They seem to be selling well but still not mainstream. I think I'm just impatient.

    I gave a pebble to a friend as a birthday gift and gave my old Sony MN2 to another friend, other than that I've never seen anyone around here with one.

    Oddly enough everyone seems to be able to recognize them when I wear one. Just not to the point where people feel it's worth their dollars yet, I guess.

    I know! They seem to be selling so well, yet I haven't seen anyone. Ok, one person but that's it.

    I still don't see anyone in my company that's wearing a smartwatch outside of me. This is odd since we're a tech company, and our CEO drives a connected car of sorts (Tesla Model S).

    Only one person.

    Last month, Sony sent me a Smartwatch to review. I wore it around daily; most people didn't notice it. I coach 9-yr old boys, and one of my kids goes, "Coach, is that a Sony Smartwatch? I really want one!"

    Blew my mind... kids, I tell you. They are aware...

    Even though I study in a residential University where most students are extremely affluent, I've yet to see a Smartwatch in the wild. For example, Pebble did no marketing here in India, so very few people even know about it. No Gears either!

    Ugh I want a Pebble :P

    Haven't noticed many...but generally when I'm checking someone out I'm not looking at their watch

    As into connected technology as I am, I have not yet reached a point where a Smartwatch is crucial to my workflow. I don't think I am alone in this either.

    Of course, when the iWatch drops, it will become a must-have accessory LOL.

    Apart from myself and my cherry red Pebble, I haven't seen a single person yet wearing a smartwatch.
