Dick Tracy was a comic strip crime fighter in the 1930's. In 1946, the year I was born, he started using a futuristic two-way wrist radio called the Dick Tracy watch. I grew up with this stuff, always wondering if it would ever become reality.

It has, and then some. My Samsung phone is joined at the hip with my Samsung watch via bluetooth. I can place and receive phone calls around the world, with this device on my wrist. I can update and set watch settings from my phone. Not to mention all of the apps and body tracking goodies it contains.

But sometimes my watch surprises me, like this morning. When I flicked my wrist to wake it up and check the time, there was Jess and Ariella starting back at me. Now I'm a pretty tech savvy guy, but I have no idea how a notification like that ends up on my watch, I didn't set it up to do that!

Not that I mind, I enjoy their photo site and drop by every time I get an email showing new content, but this is just downright strange.

Update: I figured it out. Somehow Family Album notifications got turned on from my phone. I'll leave it on :-)
