Sure, I know very few women who would wear a pink watch. But in showing loads of smartwatches to loads of women, the near unanimous refrain is, "I would never wear that." But the Withings watch at the end of the article gets positive reviews from women. The bottom line is that fashion matters in smartwatch design; that men and women wear different types of watches; and that smartwatches have mostly been designed only for men.
