A creepy future with extra cheezy!

Using the watch as a motion control for games would be cool, but I think it might only happen when phones can plug into our TV. Haha swinging our hands around while watching a 4 to 5 inch screen is sure to result in a few phones suddenly flying around.

The thought of playing a game on that thing...

Anyone over sixteen who wants or owns one needs rewiring...
As long as I can move left, right and fire, I'm Happy...

Haha I guess it is time to upgrade my phone

It would agree with you now @Pixel perfick, but who knows what genius method they will come up with next. Haha I still remember when snake was the best game on the phone. Would never have imagined the quality of games we can play in our hp now. If they can use the watch mainly as a motion controller, I think there will be great potential.

I've had a Pebble smart watch ever since their Kickstarter and I use it every day. My main use is to get email notifications and also notifications telling me who is calling me on my phone (so I can ignore them if I don't want to talk to them :D ). I do have a Flappy Bird game on the watch and it seems like several simple games could be done for that phone, which has an SDK.

Game and Watch is an obvious way to go. Maybe also early phone game or even earlier console games like the Atari 2600. Back when Pixels were king. Personally, I'm waiting for the Firefox OS watch! I have grown to dislike Samsung, so I don't want their big ugly watch. The Pebble just put out version 2.0 of their SDK. My original Pebble cost $99 but I think the cheapest now is $150 but they have flashier ones too. Mine is a nice black tasteful watch that don't attract a lot attention.

Right now the Pebble store has about 1,000 apps in it!

It looks like fun but I'm having way too much fun with Firefox OS (and Construct 2) to do much.

Imagine you could have 4 of these. On your both hands and legs as motion controllers. Games would be streamed from your phone to Oculus Rift on your head. You could leave another eye free to see where you are going (optional). Imagine playing Tekken on a bus stop in FULL 3D. People on the streets would just admire "Well look at them go!"
