So I am looking to get a smartwatch for my wife, primarily as a hitech mitten-string for her phone because she keeps leaving it everywhere.
A big problem for her is she has to have her phone on silent at work, but needs to know if she gets texts or emails immediately because they could be important (she works in a medical clinic).
As a result, she has a tendency to leave her phone on her desk in her field of view so she can see text/email alerts as they come up. But this has created a habit of her leaving her phone everywhere. It's infuriating. I love my wife but I am willing to drop money to fix this.
The additional complexity? She has a Lumia 830 Windows Phone. She is a Windows Phone diehard. Finding a smurch that works with a Windows phone is hard. We're looking at possibly the Band 2?
Also, any advice for a smoorch for myself would be cool. I am not one of the seventeen people still using a Windows Phone, I have a Nexus 6.
Neither of us are big fitness nerds, so all that heart/sleep/jerk off monitoring stuff that many smulches do nowadays doesn't matter. We do
care about them having microphones and interacting with Cortana/OK Google respectively, that's a biggie. They are also not going to be phone replacements, in fact the whole idea is to be them flipping their shit if they get too far from the phone.
