What You Should Know About Smart Watches
Here’s a look at the major things you’re going to want to know about smart watches.
They’re Tiny – Even compared to the smallest mobile phone, a smart watch is going to seem tiny in comparison. Because of this, you shouldn’t expect to lounge around and watch full length movies all day.
Security – As with smartphones and other mobile devices, a smart watch is going to be another way that hackers and identity thieves can rob you. Because of this, it’s important to study up on the security features that the various watches offer.
As for what smart watches are on the horizon, here’s a quick look at some of them that are the most anticipated for one reason or another.
Google Smart Watch – After Google Glass came out, some people wondered if Google would even bother with a smart watch. Well, they are and it’s looking like it’s going to be a great product.
Qualcomm Toq – This one has a great user interface design – especially when you consider the small screen size. This watch uses a Mirasol display which is really easy to read.
Kreyos Meteor – The really cool thing about this one is that it can synch up with your smartphone wirelessly so both devices are always on the same page when it comes to notifications, emails and calendar reminders.
HOT (Hands On Talk) SmartWatch – The thing that sets this smart watch apart from all the others is that it gives you the option of private calling. You’ll have to check it out yourself to see how they do this.
Metawatch – This is one of the dumbest smart watches available, but for some people that’s a good thing. It’s already available for sale and concentrates on four pieces of information – the time, the weather, notifications, and a stock ticker.
Smart watches will likely go through a lot of changes as they become more common – like computers, mobile phones and a lot of other technology – but this is a good thing for humanity. The big thing to remember is that you shouldn’t put all your faith and trust into ANY electronic device. Once you do that, you’re going to find that your life is unlivable unless you have the technology – and that’s not a good thing.
