Devices you don’t need when you carry a smartphone

Wrist Watch

I remember old days when I used to wear a watch and I it was like a swagger on me.I used to be so proud to wear it , I would show it off to everyone.I would hate when no one asked me for time.I would keep looking at
it even though I already knew what time it was.But now I don’t wear it anymore as I have a smartphone of course having smartphone doesn’t mean that one shouldn’t wear it anymore but I can’t afford a watch that I would like
to show off.

Alarm clock=You no longer need an annoying alarm clock that is so loud when the alarm goes off that it also wakes up your neighbors,on top of it if you try to shut it by hitting the button most of the times you won’t get it right the first time.

Wallet=If your wallet is getting too fat,you may want to get rid of it completely.There are many apps like google wallet,paypal where you can simply poinjt your phone at a merchant’s sale system and via NFC it can accept payment.
I agree that not many businesses accept that and also not all smartphones have that functionality but if your phone can do it,you are in luck.
