The 25 Worst Wearables Ever


Neptune Pine

The Neptune Pine is the smartwatch that is simply way too big to be labeled either ‘smart’ or a ‘watch.’ Featuring a 2.4-inch screen to rival early smartphones, the Pine claimed to be “the definitive all-in-one smartwatch.” To be fair, Neptune packed an impressive number of features into their watch, including a microphone, speakers, a compass, satnav, a pedometer, headphone jack and front and rear cameras, but the sheer size of the device meant that it was never likely to appeal to the mass market. Users would complain about not being able to wear long-sleeved garments over the Pine. Like most failed early wearable technologies, this was a product that was launched via Kickstarter.
