Nissan Nismo Smartwatch On Driver's Wrist While Driving The Car

After Samsung, Sony and Neptune Pine … Nissan decided to enter the smartwatch market. While their product is more targeted to connecting the driver with the car than all the bells and whistles of the fancy smartwatches on the market, Nissan’s Nismo promises to offer an array of tools to improve the driving experience. The smartwatch connects with your smartphone via a dedicated application which pulls information directly from the car’s computer.

Users will be able to have real time information about the trip, speed, fuel consumption and various performance averages as well as social media status update notification. Nismo will also allow the car’s computer to push maintenance notifications to it’s screen. The incorporated heart rate monitor (HRM) will constantly monitor the wearer’s pulse and compare it to current and past speeds, just the same as the biometric technology is used by performance racing drivers.

Another cool feature of the Nissan Nismo Smartwatch is it helps the driver with driving tips based on the information it receives. This way, if the weather forecast announces icy roads the Nismo will advise you to slow down or if the if a higher pulse rate is detected a reduced speed is counseled.

Nissan’s Nismo Smartwatch in in concept mode and no release date was confirmed by the car manufacturer. Given Nissan’s plans to develop more wearable technology to help improving driving experience, I am sure it’ll not take decencies to Nissan to release the Nismo watch to the consumer markets …

Samsung Galaxy Gear - Smartwatch Or Smartphone Satellite Uni
After a lot of hype and wait, Samsung finally released their smartwatch model – The Samsung Galaxy Gear.
The smartwatch is able to do a lot of cool things like: show time (dah!!!), take pics, allow you to place and receive calls, act as a remote control for your smartphone’s music player, display and send text massages and many more…

While I must admit the Galaxy Gear has a nice design and looks pretty impressive from a features point of view I was disappointed when reading the news. I was expecting a smartwatch not a smartphone satellite unit. You now? The kind that can replacea my smartphone when I do not feel like carrying it on me, a gadget to keep on my wrist and use when I go jogging, when I go clubbing or when I go out in the park…

I was expecting something fancier and better than the Neptune Pine (which is a full featured smartwatch running Android available on the market since more than 6 months ago) or the Chinese Touch Wristwatches which sell since at least 3 years ago …

But why rush? Maybe next year I’ll be able to go out without my 5″ brick in my pocket … Don’t get me wrong, I love my smartphone, but sometimes I only need it to place a couple of calls or send some SMS … but I still have to carry the entire 5″ brick on me …

What’s your take on it? Is the Samsung Galaxy Gear what you expected? Is it a Smartwatch Or a Smartphone Satellite Unit?

Ring Clock - The Time Telling Piece Of Jewelry

If you liked the jewelry-watch combination but you were not impressed by the CST-01 Wristwatch Bracelet and the Watch Cufflinks hold your breath … there’s another jewelry-gadget coming your way!

The Ring Clock was designed by Gusztav Szikszai back in 2011 and finally started it’s way to the production line.

The Ring Clock is a clever waterproof watch that can be worn on your finger, like any other ring. It’s made of surgical stainless steel and features 144 ultrathin mono-color leds (available in blue or orange) that show the actual time.
The ring watch shows the time by rotating it’s three bands (hours, minutes and seconds) to display the actual time on the upper side of the ring and it is powered by a rechargeable 6mAh battery with a running time of around one week (15 times activations per day) or two hours of constant use. The time can be set and the battery can be charged wireless via the Qi charging pad included with the purchase.

The only thing we’re not crazy about is that the battery is not replaceable. I can’t imagine falling in love with this beauty and after 3 years having to throw it away because the battery life ran down. Other than this (which I have a felling will be addressed soon) the Ring Clock is a classy head turner time telling jewelry piece which will make you stand apart of the pack.

The Ring Clock is in project stage at Indiegogo and you can secure one for an early bird price of $185. The delivery is scheduled for April 2014.
