    Greetings!

    Hi folks,

    I'm Laura Knotek, a member of Mobile Nations since June 2009 and a Moderator on WPCentral.

    I'm going to check out this site, since I like to follow tech-related stuff.

    I'm old-school, though, when it comes to watches. I doubt if I'll get a smartwatch, since my real love is antique railroad standard pocket watches. My oldest is an Elgin-Ball 333, 18 size, 17 jewel, ca 1902.

    Welcome over, Laura. There are a lot of good arguments here for looking at a Smartwatch.

    I have a bunch of pocket watches: Elgin, Hamilton, Waltham, Illinois.

    This is the Elgin-Ball.






    Here is the biography of Webb C Ball. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webb_C._Ball

    It still keeps accurate time nowadays that would meet the standards for use on the railroads back when those watches were required.

    Hi Barljo,

    No bonus LOL. I'm just checking out this site since it's new, and smartwatches are pretty much the only new and interesting products I've seen from CES so far this year.
