I have been trying to translate an article about wearable smart watches. But there is a sentence which is unclear to me. I don't know what does "could be made that without it" mean in the following context?
I know I can’t be the only one that finds nightly recharging an irritation. I know we do the same thing with our smartphones, but that is a whole different appliance. My smartphone is my nerve center of mobile communications. The argument could be made that without it, any high-tech wearable is useless in carrying out its task, so in exchange for pretty much managing my entire digital identity (more on that later), I am willing to keep the battery juiced.
P.S: In the above context, author is reviewing wearable smart watches and a bit comparing it to smartphones.
