I think it's moronic and doesn't have much practicality but might be used in a better way in a communist society

What do you think about wearables and do you think it would exist in an advanced socialist society?

Just look at how stupid this shit is

No it's truly useless.
It's only purpose is surveillance and harvesting useless consumer data.

Computers are general purpose tools, but everything after that was designed to collect useless data on people and nothing else. It belongs in the trash.

Yeah I've come to feel everything more mobile than a laptop is pointless and life-wasting in current year. Definitely necessary to reach extremely small computers so whatever, let the normies fund it.

Useless unless you have heart problems or something and I'm sure there are gadgets better suited to keep that in check.
This is only something PMCs buy to count their daily steps or something retarded like that.

A big tech corporation might see this as a "new market" or a way to extend the reach of their sensors, but from a user perspective this is a useless gimmick. And it's not new, when mp3 players were all the rage you could get a jacket with an integrated mp3 player. People prefer separate devices because they can use the functionality with all their clothing.

Wearable technology is not going to be a thing until it stops trying to attach stuff to clothing, and start improving clothing. The obvious improvement for a jacket would be including a thermostat that regulates the temperature.
