PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless

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.

Apple never license any patents without being forced to do so through a court case.
"

And even then. As far as I know, they are still trampling all over Samsung's patents.
