Somewhere not too far away Ebenezer Scrooge is licking his chops. He can’t wait until you get a smart watch. Whether it’s an Apple or Android, he doesn’t care. All he wants to do is suck a few more minutes of your precious life from you and a gift on your wrist is all it will take.
Except that he probably won’t even have to buy it. You’ll do the shopping and fork over your hard earned cash. Just so you can check last minute stats before the marketing call you’re about to make or be notified the second that your customer finally signs your purchase order.
The watch will make you a more productive worker. Regardless, we know it’s you that wants the watch. That you’re buying it so you can track your health and fitness. Listen to music on the run. And speak memos into your watch just like Dick Tracy.
But trust us, you’ll be using it for work, too, probably much more than you imagine. So why not have your boss fork over the cash for it, or at least subsidize it.
