They look really cool, but then I think, why should I spend money on something that requires I be tied to a phone to fully function, I'm locked to their system, I need to charge it daily or more, it just doesn't work in real-world applications right now. It would need to be independent of the phone and not cost a lot to be a good deal. Plus, once you own one, why in the world would you need to buy another one, we are used to buying a watch and it lasting several years or decades before needing replacing and usually that's just the battery which is cheap.
