Drivers are being distracted by smartwatches

Smartwatches are the next "big thing" in the technology world. All of the major tech firms are putting out smartwatches. Smartwatches vary from fitness trackers to full-blown semi-smartphone replacements like the iWatch. Unfortunately, all of these updates in technology are also an added distraction to drivers.

Drivers already contend with a variety of distractions from classic radios to smartphones and now smartwatches. Unfortunately, smartwatches do not qualify as hands-free devices.

A hands-free device means that you do not need hands to operate it at all. But, smartwatches technically require at least two hands, one to operate and one to view. For instance, to use a smartwatch, you must remove your hand from the wheel and look down. To do something on your watch takes two hands to look and operate the watch.

Some studies have also found that smartwatches are more distracting than smartphones. The studies point out that smartwatches, unlike phones, are worn on the wrist. Drivers cannot ignore watches in the same way they can phones. A phone can be put down, and away, a smartwatch is worn on the wrist, and the buzzing and flashing lights are distracting.

If you were injured in a car collision due to a distracted driver, then you may want to speak with a lawyer. Distracted driving is negligent driving, and that other driver is liable for your injuries and the damage to your vehicle. An attorney can help you get the money to which you are entitled. You were the victim of the accident; you shouldn't have to pay for your injuries.
