40 Wearables in 400 Years (or iWatch, smiWatch)

1

Whether we finally see an iWatch tomorrow or not, all of this frenzy around wearables made me curious what the timeline on the architectural approach looks like. So I did a little research and came up with the following table.  This is incomplete for sure, but I found a few things that surprised and entertained me, so here it is for your enjoyment.  Comments, additions, criticisms all welcome on @ReidCarlberg.

    I actually just got my Moov last week. It’s pretty slick, although I’m still getting used to the amount of mid-run feedback it provides. It’s a bit overwhelming.
