Having a Googley gadget on your wrist can be a great way to stay on top of stuff — but with Google’s Pixel Watch in particular, the best productivity-boosting possibilities are the ones you can’t see.
A smartwatch, after all, is a tiny screen. And that means it isn’t especially optimal for intricate, extended interactions revolving around touch (unless you’re a Tinkerbell-sized creature with teensy fingies, in which case the Pixel Watch is probably bigger than your entire being — so, yeah, good luck with that).
It seems like the understatement of the century, I realize. And yet, device-maker after device-maker continues to emphasize those very sorts of painfully awkward touch-based interactions and app-centric experiences with the smartwatch form.
