Wearables Right or Wrong? Why Apple was wise to not unveil iWatch

I’m done with mocking Sony for its botched U.S. product launch: The company’s new Smartband zigs where other wearables zag, offering a refreshing, unique approach to activity-tracking wristbands.

In my latest installment of Wearables Right or Wrong?, I explain what makes the Smartband so interesting, then veer back into cynicism with my evaluation of Diane Von Furstenberg as the new public face of Google Glass. The show ends with my tale of the iWatch that never happened. Spoiler: Apple needs to take a long, hard look at Android Wear before it pulls its wearables trigger.
