Check out the 5 reasons why you should go and buy smartwatch this year in 2014.
When smartphones came in the market, it was like a dream come true as nobody had thought of carrying almost all the functionalities of a laptop in a hand-held mobile phone device. But there is still much more compact to come in the next 2-3 years and that is a smart watch. Smart-watches are computerized and have many more smart-phone like functionalities rather than just looking for time. This watch will have an operating system like iOS or Android and a touch screen too.
Though it is still just an idea because no company has formally announced about the launch of such device; let us see the reasons which may provide a good market to these devices to sustain –
#1: On Top of Notifications
We need a smartphone, tablet, laptop etc. to connect to a smartwatch. The watch then can be used to view any update of the connected device. For example- a new message in your smartphone can be viewed through the watch but response can’t be sent. One does not have to take the phone out of pocket everytime. Also, it has great value to those who are not allowed take phones in their company campus etc. One can know about important reminders, calls or texts without being noticed in a meeting.
#2: Security Advantage
The device has its best application in case of notifying emergencies to someone because one may ignore his/her mobile phone but it would be tough to ignore notifications on smartwatches as it will be right in front of you. It also adds a security advantage for you, for example- in technical companies while swiping the access card, it ensures that right person is present at right place using this watch.
#3: Video Conferencing
It can prove very useful to those who often do video conferencing. Though the display is small with lesser resolution but it is convenient for frequent Skype users etc. There may be a time when smart watches with bigger displays will be in market and become a fashion too!
#4: Into Future of Voice Processing
It is very much likely that one day voice processing will be well developed. Dictating an email will then be easier through these watches rather than holding a smartphone and speaking into it. Writing a mail or text will then become obsolete because of the inconvenience. We hope that it happens soon and that day smart watches will be truly recognized. Smart Phones will no longer enjoy the same attention.
#5: Easy Things Quickly
The functionalities may not be many and the screen is also very small but smart watches do solve certain small issues that some people may face. The concept is catchy and totally new, so one must try a hand on it. Basically, we have to look at the application part of smartwatches and not at the number of functionalities.
As explained above, you may find many disadvantages with smart-watches but the unique application that it will serve will surely benefit some people. Add GPS to smart-watch and feel the ease, refuse or ignore calls, dictate text or emails, reply with recorded messages etc. Wouldn’t be easier not to dig your phone every-time and be notified about everything whenever you look for time, which is very often. Small Battery life, smaller processor, smaller screen are definitely some considerable issues but it is hoped that in near future these improvements will be made.
Device will be cost effective and multipurpose. Also, the new generation will love it as it is trendy and fashionable. With access to internet one can even browse their favorite websites like Facebook, twitter etc. Smart-watches have a big market waiting for their launch and smart-phones with smart-watches will work wonders.
