Awesome Stuff: Not Quite A Smart Watch
from the but-not-not-a-smart-watch-either dept
There are now tons of smart watches on the market, many from smaller players, but the big guys are increasingly moving into the market as well. While many are still not convinced of the smart watch concept, as a happy Pebble owner, I can say that it really does change my relationship with my phone (i.e., I use the phone a lot less, and am better able to stay informed on important things, without having to constantly pull out my phone). For me it’s been pretty powerful. That said, for this week’s awesome stuff, we’re looking at three crowdfunding projects for things that aren’t quite smart watches, but might interest some people who are curious about smart watches, but haven’t quite made the leap yet.
- The Sim
- The Glance
Next up, we have the Glance, which is a little device that you stick inside your regular watch wristband, which acts just like a typical smart watch. In other words, if you like the notification features of a smart watch like the Pebble, but hate the actual look of smart watches, you can keep using your own, and just slide this little device into the wrist band. It’s a “smart accessory” to a watch to make it like a smart watch.
- The Modilillian Smart Strap
That’s it for this week…
