Ladies and Gentlemen, if I could have your attention for just a moment. It seems Gartner Research has released a lengthy statement this week, announcing that, everyone, don’t panic, but smartwatches will not be the hot gift item this year.
For myself, as both a tech junkie and a watch aficionado, I actually wouldn’t mind receiving a smartwatch, particularly since they don’t seem to be far enough along in their advancement to make it worthwhile buying one for myself. But hey, as a present, they don’t seem like that bad an idea. But no, we are told, that a large marketing firm has determined that this is not the case, and they will not be the hot gift idea of 2013. They don’t know what will be the hot gift idea, but it won’t be smartwatches.
What else will not be the hot gift idea of 2013?
