While not everyone is impressed with Apple's Watch, TechCrunch's Matthew Panzarino explains the unusual discovery made by those who have been using the device for some time: they've nearly stopped using their smartphone. While a digital watch won't replace a handheld, the way it handles notifications causes users to drastically reduce the amount of time spent staring at a screen.

People that have worn the Watch say that they take their phones out of their pockets far, far less than they used to. A simple tap to reply or glance on the wrist or dictation is a massively different interaction model than pulling out an iPhone, unlocking it and being pulled into its merciless vortex of attention suck.

If you're curious, here is how the watch is made.
