Why Smart Watches Failed

I know that many of your love technology as much as I do, but there are some things that are cool - but impractical. As much as I still love my Pebble Steel and Martian Notifier, the fact is that Smart Watches are pretty much dead. Pebble is done, Motorola quit and Jawbone is out.
