On smartwatches, Summer 2013 edition
I’ve been trying out and studying up on smartwatches lately. Here are a few initial thoughts:
- They’re not very smart.
- They’re onto something.The wrist is definitely an interesting, comfortable and non-intrusive place for wearable tech.
- All those training focused wearable tech gadget and smartwatch vendors need to join forces.
- Google Now as well as many aspects of the Google Glass interface are easily transferable to the wrist as well. Btw, the picture above shows Google’s “smart-watch with user interface features” patent application.
To be continued.
