Do you need an Apple Watch?

Apple has finally announced its new watch along with larger iPhones. They look pretty cool and have all sorts of interesting, if not novel, features. Other players have had similar watches on the market for a while now, so in some ways there's little new here.

Still, the cache will be significant, and there are plenty of style choices as well. But the real question goes to whether you'll need to even want one.

For me the answer at this moment is no. I'm already too addicted to the stream of information available through my phone. Have all of this on my wrist will just provide too many distractions.

What I'm most interested is easy recording, particularly sound but also video, that I can summon and then stop at any time. I haven't heard that yet as a feature.
