Bear in mind that I'm not just singling out Google here. Apple is rumored to be working on some sort of watch, and Microsoft is no doubt lurking in the background with their wearable products as well. So Google is just following the trend, and no doubt wants to avoid being left behind by its competitors. But so far what I've read about these watches seems to indicate that they perform a similar set of tasks as a smartphone. I'm not seeing anything new or unique that sets them apart beyond the fact that they are on your wrist instead of in your hand or pocket.
