The Apple watch has already promised to transform the way we interact with our phones, trading time-consuming feeds with rows and rows of mesmerizing data for quick glances that give you the information that you need exactly when you need it.

Could we become more productive and more present in our roles, all while gaining the added information and insight that our technology provides us at a moment’s notice?
Your watch will certainly be able to tell you when your next meeting is. But what if your watch could tell you where the nearest available conference room is?

If the watch were to let you book conference rooms quickly, you’d have more time to focus on finding solutions to the challenges your business faces.
Salesforce.com recently announced their Salesforce Wear Developer Pack. At the same time they also demoed an application that can give alerts and even graphs right from Salesforce on their watch.
