Actually you mean when they are well packaged. You don't need
high-speed internet connectivity in order to perform the operations
commonly that were what started this exchange: audio/video ubiquitous
recording. Nor is this high end connectivity needed to use wearables to
directly augment memory, filter sensory inputs and do various context

be present by the time (quite soon imho) when wearables are
well-packaged and even considered fashionable by at least the hi-tech
