Actually Seiko and Casio made smartwatches in the 80s. Being able to connect and transmit data with your computer.
Sony make the first wearable not apple. Apple's camera is sony's camera. Apple doesn't innovate. They copy and sell it in expensive prices. Sue apple.
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2014So you said you android phone is running like a pc...why not asked samsung or windowd to make ... moreOn top of how you were already schooled in this.... where is not even winning most speed tests plus having more crashes and bugs and even some more lag better performance?

I had a 3310 and I hated it 'cos it was so simple compared to a (slower) Ericsson that I was feeling like I can't do anything properly. Yet everyone bought it and everyone loved it. Ditto for the iPhone.
Invention... Sorry but Apple don't invent, they innovate.
The smartwatch has been around for a while and to be honest, the Apple one is not even on the market yet so how does it get a top invention award?
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2014So you said you android phone is running like a pc...why not asked samsung or windowd to make ... moreYou obviously didn't read very carefully. Or maybe I wasn't clear enough. Any way...
I wasn't saying that "android is running like a PC". What I was saying is that Android is growing in complexity and is slowly becoming more like a desktop class OS, whereas iOS stayed pretty much the same. Again, I'm not saying that Android is now a desktop OS, but IT IS GROWING in complexity, and might one day become one.
As for the "iPhone did better in benchmarks" I think I was clear enough. Let's try a different analogy. A PC from 2000 will run MSDOS faster than a PC from 2014 running Windows Vista. Does this mean that the 2000 PC is better? Of course not. Unless we run THE SAME OS on both PCs we can't tell for sure which is better, but we can clearly speculate that MSDOS is a simpler OS, that can run great on a older PC.
The same can be said about iOS/Android. We can't tell for sure if iPhone's hardware is better or worse than the competitors, but knowing some of it's specs (like 1GB ram) we can speculate that the reason it's fast is that the OS is simpler, less demanding, with less features.

I don't care because it's irrelevan... moreSo you said you android phone is running like a pc...why not asked samsung or windowd to make a phone that can be used like a computer put a cpu on it...lol why not asked a small pocket size computer since thats wat u want... anyway your android phone has higher specs on paper and iPhone has lower specs in paper... now in reality whennit comes to performance who wins? Since you saw the benchmark test...isn't that hurts your feelings that the iPhone hu has lower specs defeated nor crashes your crap laggy android phone hu has higher specs? Lol

Alyx, 24 Nov 2014I'm not sure if I qualify as a Samsung fan, but I know I qualify as an Android one. So here's ... moreSo make your own time magazine and featured the device thats suits to ur liking...now how bout that? Isn't a god idea to you?
There were tons of smartwatches...
Pioneered by Seiko watches from 1982...
Predecessor of modern ones with toucscreens being samsungs S9110 from 2009...
First modern OS (Android) compatible smarwatch being Sonys LiveView from 2010...
Correct me if Im wrong
This Time bull about iWatch is only for USA guilable patriots...
Even Surface3 is nothing new as Acer made a WP tablet with detachable keyboard, to compete with laptops...it was last year
Time article is only "greatest USA product innovation of the year". But USA is hardly the more innovative world it thinks it is...
If the selfie stick made it in the list, this list is useless. So many watches out already, but of course Apple made it innovative.

Anonymous, 24 Nov 2014they did invent it. There has been a patent for the apple smart watch since 2008. Sams... moreYeh, samsung in 1999 took a ride on their time machine to 2008 and stole apples idea. Shame on samsung, tsk tsk
Apple watch top innovation??? is it a joke?
It is copied from numerous smart watch manufacturer. Apple could have been called a biggest laggard.

Apple keeps claiming they rethink, reimagine, reinvent, re.. blah blah blah at ridiculously EXCESSIVE PRICE. Wow. that's just bullsh*t at the highest level. Congratulations.
