While Example definitely won’t be partnering with Apple on the iPhone maker’s upcoming Watch despite an ill-fated rumor that surfaced last year, the watchmaker does prepare to go toe-to-toe with Apple promising its own variation of a smartwatch due out soon. Bloomberg reports that Swatch prepares to bring its answer to the Apple Watch to market in the next 90 days.
The kitchen area has actually always been a place for gizmos of all kinds – and the hands-free interface of the Watch makes it a natural addition to any chef’s arsenal. For example, voice command could assist a cook with flour on his hands to set a timer.
Several other brands are currently making waves in the smartwatch arena, consisting of Apple’s most significant rivals, Samsung and Google. While Google’s focus has been on its Android Wear operating system for wrists, Samsung has actually pushed through a number of smart bands under the Gear brand name. The $149 Gear Fit is a fitness-oriented tracker, while the $350 Gearis a 3G-enabled smartwatch that can run on its own without being tethered to a phone.
Of course, there are still two major issues with the Apple Watch changing your wallet. Initially, is that if the battery abandons your Apple Watch or iPhone, then you successfully have nothing. Second, is your ID. As far as I know, there is no digital equivalent or copy of an official recognition card such as a motorist’s license or key. Once such distinct identifiers become securely digital, then it may be possible to kiss your traditional wallet bye-bye. I understand I ‘d such as that since my wallet averages about two inches thick – and I hate lugging it around … as much as I seem to such as filling it up with notepads and plastic.
You do realise that if you change the watch face it would clearly look various, ideal? I like Apple but some of you are being ridiculous acting like the Apple Watch is something special, while fantastic smart watches have actually existed for a while now.
