Forget Apple Watch! This Netflix Watch is to die for

Smartwatches have arrived in all shapes and sizes and have promised to help us accomplish a lot of things without having to fish out our smartphones from our bags or pockets, which could cost you at least 5 seconds of your life every time.

Here’s how long binge-watching your favorite shows will take
