  • 3. BRIEF INTRODUCTION A smart watch is a computerized wristwatch with functionality that is enhanced beyond timekeeping, and is often comparable to a PDA (personal digital assistant ) device. While early models can perform basic tasks, such as calculations, translations, and game-playing, modern smart watches are effectively wearable computers. Many smart watches run mobile apps, while a smaller number of models run a mobile operating system and function as portable media players, offering playback of FM radio, audio, and video files to the user via a Bluetooth headset. Some watch phones can make phone calls.

  • 17. S O N Y S M A R T WAT C H R E V I E W : M AY B E T H E W O R S T T H I N G S O N Y H A S E V E R MADE • too thick • Complex process of installation • requires a constant Bluetooth connection with an Android phone to do anything smart at all • an awkward two-points-at-the-same-time jab • The OLED display is dark • Texts and calendars don't sync, call launching is confusing, Facebook only loads status updates with no option to comment
  • 18. Pebble smartwatch review • raised $100,000 in two hours • Solid, lightweight, smooth edge and long battery life great waterproof ability • simply shake your wrist to dismiss the notification • doesn't offer much functionality without a smartphone • interactions between Pebble and a connected smartphone go in one direction(except music player )
  • 19. CONCLUSION At present, smartwatch is still being developed. It has some disadvantages, such as short battery life, complex process of installation and tiny screen size. What’s more, many functions that smart watch possesses are similar to those of smartphone. Therefore, for now it is not as popular as smartphone. But our group believes that it will be more popular in 5 or 10 years as the development of smartphones.
