Say you have your 2030 Apple Watch mark 10.2, which includes personal force field. You are walking down a dodgy street in London at 3.00am nonchalantly. This is because the forcefield protects you from any external harm, be it physical assault or gun shots.

Would such a device, which is fully possible in the near future, change society completely?

Even if this was possible it would require far too much energy to fit on a watch, my phone can't even go half a day of internet browsing without needing to recharge. In any case the only force field research I'm aware of is to stop shockwaves or radiation, they would do nothing to physical attacks or bullets.

Compare 1980s hardrives/capacity to now and be astounded.

What if the force field doesn't recognise your clothes and blows them off?

No, I can't see how a forcefield that protected humans from any external harm would change society in the slightest. I cannot see any possible implications of such an invention.
