Nate Barham on wearables from Apple:

If it isn’t notifications and it isn’t health, then what is it that this new device will do or allow us to do that isn’t blatantly obvious? Payments could certainly be easier on a device that is already out and accessible. Though few of us need to shave a couple seconds off a notification check, many have felt the pressure of fiddling with our phones in line at a coffee shop.

This is the same thing I have been wondering: what the hell does a wearable do for me which is substantially (or even marginally) better than the phone in my pocket?
