Analogue watches are worn by stupid people who like a lot of hard work when it comes to telling the time.
To be a bit more fair, they are not ‘stupid’. They are mental. And, usually, attracted by shiny shiny things, which digital displays tend not to be.
I’ve discussed before (here) how only crazy people want to go through all the pain and calculation required to tell the time from an analogue watch. In contrast of course, a digital display just tells the time without the need for mental calculations to convert from a collection of seemingly random patterns into the actual time.
For some years, the wristwatch went into decline. When needing to know the time, modern generations just looked at their smartphones. The wrist was freed!
But, more recently, the wristwatch has returned. Except of course, it is not allowed to be called a ‘wristwatch’ but has to be ‘wearable tech’ or liberally use the word ‘smart‘ instead.
Essentially, of course, it is now nothing more than just an extended mobile phone screen disguised as a wristwatch.
This, is quite a cool idea, although it would be a lot cooler if the entire phone disappeared inside the watch, and the larger screen of a smartphone size was the display accessory kept in the pocket until needed.
This wrist based ‘wearable tech’ is currently being sucked up by the wealthy and by the early adopters.
The ‘early adopters’ are usually of modern mind and knowledge. Yet, to my horror, they are attracted by future tech displaying analogue time displays.
Why would a modern minded human want an analogue display on their wrist?
Ah yes, it’s because they are mental.
