Smartwatches are the newest and coolest device that demands driver pay attention to its notifications, rather than the road. Smartwatches are "watches" that have been enhanced with computers and display. Most smartwatches pair with phones and display notifications from the phone and track numerous metrics about your body, usually health-related such as steps, heart rate, and estimated burned calories. Smartwatches, thanks to all the additional data, are now also the latest device to distract drivers from their number one priority, driving.
Safety experts have been ringing the warning bell for months (in some cases years) about the dangers of using smartwatches while driving. They point out that smartwatches, unlike phones, are placed on the wrist, therefore, drivers must both remove their eyes from the road and their hand from the wheel to see the latest alert. Additionally, the constant buzzing or beeping on the wrist is far more immediate and demanding than a smartphone which can be tossed in the adjacent seat. The effect is to create a device that drivers are unable to ignore.<
