Re: wearables
The processing power should be cloud based for all these watches as they become standalones. With data on board, the watch should be able to send any ressource demanding request to a cloud.

Re: wearables
I tend to think voice recognition is the most logical interface for watches but given the processing power onboard I'm not sure its possible to have a Siri-like interface on them.

network effects of smart watches?
I'm wondering what analogy for fax machines is going to work for smart watches... if you only have one fax machine, it's pretty useless. But if there are a bunch of people using fax machines, then everyone is pressured to use fax machines. So a smart watch by itself may seem useless, but if a bunch of people are using smart watches... will there be pressure for more people to wear smart watches?  WHY!??

I don't think "tapping" msgs out on my wrist to my friends with Apple Watches is going to cut it as a "fax" feature that will pressure everyone else to get one. The only advantage I see really is that Apple Watch wearers won't need to get out their phabets from their pockets -- but that makes me sad because I don't see any flagship-quality smartphones on the horizon that are NOT phablets. ugh!

Re: wearables
But for hotel doors, the user experience needs to be really simple as the magnetic card is already pretty simple to use. I was surprised to see a demo for SPG where a one step approach was made a 3 steps approach when technology was involved.

Re: wearables
Interesting to see that Swatch are attempting to fight back with 'tech-enhanced' watches that will, in theory, be able to receive texts and open electronic hotel door locks, among other things.

wearables
Wearables are still a nice to have a this stage, and not a necessity. I cant find a reason to get a watch, yet. Until it replaces my phone and creates a hollogram. SK telecom showcased a hollgram concept from phone and this will be available in 2018.
