Fallout's Pipboy is a Smart Watch

Just realized this while playing Fallout 4 this morning, the Pipboy Watch in the Fallout games is actually a smart watch! It can you show you your health data (stats and perks). It has a map and can help you navigate said map. It also has a radio for listening to music. It is basically an Apple Watch minus the “move rings”. Who needs “move rings” when you have raiders/monsters chasing after you at every corner? The nature of the nuclear wasteland itself will force you to stay in shape LOL.

The only thing the game designers didn't get right is the size. The Pipboy watch in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 is huge compared to the smart watches that we have today. But at the same time, the Pipboy doesn't need to be charged every night. So I guess the size allows for a battery that lasts... forever? Or maybe it is solar powered? I don't know, but it is interesting to wonder what the Pipboy would look like had Apple or Fitbit designed it.
