Early December 2014, I bought the Moto 360 with Android Wear. As someone who loves both watches and technology, it seems like a great time to jump into the world of smartwatches, and see if it has evolved beyond the bulky '80s stuff that has come before. I'll first give you a concise history of smartwatches, after which I will dive into Wear and the 360 themselves.

I'm deeply fascinated by the IBM/Citizen one. It's a touchscreen device meant to interface with (among other things) your phone, has fingerprint unlocking, and you can twist the crown to navigate the GUI. I wonder if Apple licensed any patents from them.
