I know … I know … Lately, since Apple rumored it’s intentions to come up with an iWatch, it’s been raining with smartwatches. So, why do I feature the CooKoo Bluetooth watch today? Well, it’s a cool nice piece of gadgetry that deserves some attention.
While some of it’s features are obvious (like email, incoming call, Facebook and low battery notifications), the CooKoo Watch brings a new level of user interaction to the smartwatch crowd. Now, via the COOKOO CONNECTED APP™, you can setup the watch to notify you when certain Twitter mentions are made, you can Facebook Check-In with a simple button touch (I don’t even wanna imagine about what my wall will look like!!!), you can take remote pictures and videos, control the music player, tag GPS locations and find your precious iPhone when you misplace it! All this without touching your iPhone … Amazing, isn’t it?
On the technology side – The CooKoo Watch uses Bluetooth 4.0, It’s compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad Mini, 3rd and 4th generations of iPad and iPod touch (5th generation). Another cool spec is related to the battery usage – the CooKoo doesn’t need to be charged. A $1 battery like this will keep you running for 8 months! How cool is that?
Let’s hear your comments below … What other features you’d like to see incorporated in the CooKoo? How do you see the future of the smartphone/tablet notifications? Do we have a new niche here or it’s simpler to grab your iPhone and do whatever you need on it without using 3rd party gadgetry?
