This article presents the results obtained by a qualitative study aiming at assessing the impact of innovative technologies on rote learning. The study involved students attending courses at Bachelor level. We compared the memorization of data provided on hard paper copies with data displayed on the smartwatch. We developed an application on the Apple Watch generating data batches. The participants involved in the study were asked to memorize data displayed on the smartwatch and that provided on hard paper copies, then we compared the recall rate of both formats. In addition to the figures obtained, we also mention the participants’ impressions on their learning appreciation for both devices. Finally, this article connects with the state-of-the art research concerning the comparison between digital and hard paper devices. Lastly, this article hints at future possible research leads.
