He directly questioned the future of this wearable smart devices and even admitted that he had never dreamed of wearing one on his wrist anytime soon. He explained that his company's smartwatch team was very excited when they presented the ideas, but he kept reminding them to evaluate if there are actually any need for it in the market.
