The most noteworthy thing about the MB Chronowing—the unabashedly guy-size smartwatch by designer Michael Bastian and Hewlett-Packard—is what’s missing: The timepiece has no touch screen to swipe, no microphone to speak into. It can’t track your steps or measure your heart rate. It doesn’t even beep.
Which is not necessarily a bad thing. “How many times have you been in a lunch and someone keeps checking their phone?” asked Mr. Bastian.
Sounds like just the thing to insure itself a space in the junk drawer of technology nobody ever cared about.
