Smartwatches are pointless.
For you perhaps, I like discreet notifications. I like not being able to tell the difference between checking the time and checking that new message that came in. I like being able to change the music playing without having to pull my phone out of my pocket.
How about not needing an electronic pacifier and being in constant contact? Try it some time. It makes life a lot more fulfilling. You also might begin to appreciate things around you and pay more attention to them, rather then being a zombie.
Okay you know what? Fuck off Thrash, you don't know shit.
Sure, there are people who love their tech to the point of not talking but texting, and that's fine, whatever. But how dare you suggest that Anna or I are that shallow just because we use technology that seems unusual or unhelpful to you.
I hate talking to people via text, but not as much as I hate talking to them over the phone. I actually actively go places (like bars, who would have thought) to talk to people in person, because otherwise it's horrible.
I actually love my smartwatch because it decreases the need to take my phone out of my pocket. If I get a phone call while in a conversation, instead of pulling my phone out and checking to see if it's important, I can check my watch, like I'm checking the time, and hang up from there! Nobody even knows that I'm managing calls or messages, I'm actively avoiding breaking the conversation. Compare this to someone who gets a call and pulls it out of their pocket, the entire conversation pauses for a good three seconds.
I can change my music, I can respond to texts, I can start phonecalls, with my headphones on (and by on I mean "usually around my neck") I basically never have to touch my phone, which is awesome, cause it means that I can spend more time interfacing with the real world. I try to spend all of my meatspace time appreciating the world around me, cause due to my line of work, I spend so much time in a concealed room on computers that I'd miss it.
So yeah, I dunno about Anna, but I think her interest in this kind of tech would be similar to mine. We want to be able to function in the future, without losing touch with the world around us. This stuff lets us do that.
Tl;dr: Fuck off, don't generalize Anna and I based on your own fears and prejudices, we want the same thing as you.
