Samsung SmartWatch

I am not that impressed. The design feels cheap and the interface empty and dull. Let’s hope Apple bring their world class design team and beat Samsung.

Microsoft working on smart watch

April 17, 2013

Not only Samung and Apple are working on a smart watch, but now Microsoft are too. It seems without a doubt that this very well could be the next big gadget category and it’s only natural that the three giants want to gather as a large market share as possible as quickly as possible.

Are you interested in a smart watch? With GPS, heart rate monitor, mp3, etc? Basically a “smartphone light” that syncs with your smartphone and whatnot. I think it has limited potential, but it’ll be interesting to see. I’d use it with fitness in mind.

Some interesting concepts for what Microsoft could do with their smart watch.

iWatch this year?

March 4, 2013

It is heavily rumored that Apple will be launching a product called iWatch this year.

What’s iWatch? Well Timmy, I am glad you asked. It’s something called a smartwatch. Some of the features are said to be:

  • Running fully on iOS just like the iPhone and iPad.
  • Ability to make calls.
  • Connectivity with your iPhone/iPad.
  • Check map cordinates.
  • Heart rate monitor, pedometer, etc etc and likely a heavy focus on “health” such as jogging, powerwalking etc.

What are your thoughts on potentially having an iWatch? Will you buy it? I myself am not that convinced but it might be a cool thing to have if you jog. And since spring is coming up I usually tend to start jogging and it’d be nice to get a pedometer, heart rate monitor and whatnot all-in-one synched to my iOS life.

Mock-up of what a possible iWatch might look like. Not bad.
