Watchables Will Change How We Work and Play

Lauren Hall-Stigerts quoted Chris Bennett in her story ‘The Future of Gaming is On Your Wrist‘.

“Just think of how wearing a gaming device that is less conspicuous than a visor and more accessible than a mobile phone will change the way we work and play,” Bennett says. “Watchables will integrate into every aspect of our lives.”

Think about the core loop of reaching for a mobile phone or checking a laptop, and imagine the reduction in friction from having that social and gaming device on your wrist. We are on the cusp of something new and exciting, but how will it affect our lives in positive ways?
