OpenAI's ChatGPT conversational chatbot is taking the tech industry by storm, and now you can ask it things right on your wrist, thanks to a new app for Apple Watch called Petey.

If you haven't been keeping up, ChatGPT is a next-generation language model that understands and generates human-like response to natural language input. The chatbot is trained on a large corpus of text corralled from the internet, so it can answer a wide variety of questions and generate coherent responses to many different types of prompts.

What the Petey app does is that it allows you to query OpenAI's chatbot by either typing questions into your Apple Watch or using voice-to-text input. What's more, it's a conversational experience, so you can continue to interact with the chatbot in the context of the queries you've already put to it.

Petey comes with a watch face complication that makes it very easy to access without having to navigate your apps to open it. That makes it a handy alternative to asking questions of Siri, which nine times out of ten returns a series of web results that get sent to your iPhone anyway.

If you have a query but all you have to hand is your watch, Petey can provide an answer to your question, and the responses are often far more impressive than any digital assistant is capable of. You can even have the answers read out loud with Text to Speech, and you can share the outcome of your interaction via text, email, or social media.

Previously called watchGPT (the name was dropped because of trademark issues) and developed by Hidde van de Ploeg, Petey is currently priced at $4.99 and is available on the App Store. The app requires watchOS 9, so it should work on Apple Watch Series 4 and newer models, and it currently supports 14 different languages, with more set to be added over time.

I just can't imagine the need or desire for this. We know chatGPT is biased to only provide what our overlords want us to know. Are people really that lazy that they cannot look up info themselves and can therefore judge its reliability and value?
I wholeheartedly agree! Why, when I was a young man and I needed answers, I'd spend hours Googling to find something usable. A "quick" Google search for how to fix a problem on my iPhone would requiring scouring obscure (and often shady) tech articles, watching overly long YouTube videos, and reading through rambling, barely-coherent forum posts just to get a halfway-decent answer.

These darn kids today are so soft, relying on these newfangled ChatGPT gizmos to get simple, coherent, straightforward answers in seconds instead of wasting countless hours of their lives Googling their way to vaguely usable information like the good lord and Sergey Brin intended. Now tell them to get off my lawn! ?

Just installed it. So now we have Commander Data from Star Trek: TNG on our wrists, able to answer virtually any question in context in under five seconds. Astonishing.
