Smart Watch on The GO

A smart­watch is a com­put­er­ized wrist­watch with func­tion­al­i­ty that goes beyond time­keep­ing. While ear­ly mod­els can per­form basic tasks, such as cal­cu­la­tions, trans­la­tions, and game-play­ing, 2010s smart­watch­es are effec­tive­ly wear­able com­put­ers. Many run mobile apps, using a mobile oper­at­ing sys­tem. Some smart­watch­es func­tion as portable media play­ers, with FM radio and play­back of dig­i­tal audio and video files via a Blue­tooth or USB head­set. Some mod­els, also called ‘watch phones’, fea­ture full mobile phone capa­bil­i­ty, and can make or answer phone call­sor text mes­sages.

While inter­nal hard­ware varies, most have an elec­tron­ic visu­al dis­play, either back­lit LCD or OLED. Some use trans­flec­tive or elec­tron­ic paper, to con­sume less pow­er. Most have a recharge­able bat­tery and many have a touch­screen. Periph­er­al devices may include dig­i­tal cam­eras, ther­mome­ters, accelerom­e­ters, altime­ters, barom­e­ters, com­pass­es, GPS receivers, tiny speak­ers, and SD card (that are rec­og­nized as a stor­age device by a com­put­er).

Soft­ware may include dig­i­tal maps, sched­ulers and per­son­al orga­niz­ers, cal­cu­la­tors, and var­i­ous kinds of watch faces. The watch may com­mu­ni­cate with exter­nal devices such as sen­sors, wire­less head­sets, or a heads-up dis­play. Like oth­er com­put­ers, a smart­watch may col­lect infor­ma­tion from inter­nal or exter­nal sen­sors and it may con­trol, or retrieve data from, oth­er instru­ments or com­put­ers. It may sup­port wire­less tech­nolo­gies like Blue­tooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS. For many pur­pos­es, a “wrist­watch com­put­er” serves as a front end for a remote sys­tem such as a smart­phone, com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the smart­phone using var­i­ous wire­less tech­nolo­gies. Smart­watch­es are advanc­ing, espe­cial­ly their design, bat­tery capac­i­ty, and health relat­ed appli­ca­tions.

the num­ber one rea­son knit­ters knit is because they are so smart that they need knit­ting to make bor­ing things inter­est­ing. Knit­ters are so com­pelling­ly clever that they sim­ply can’t tol­er­ate bore­dom. It takes more to engage and enter­tain this kind of human, and they need an out­let or they get into trou­ble.

Many smart­watch mod­els man­u­fac­tured in the 2010s are com­plete­ly func­tion­al as stand­alone prod­ucts. Some serve as sport watch­es, the GPS track­ing unit being used to record his­tor­i­cal data. For exam­ple, after a work­out, data can be uploaded onto a com­put­er or online to cre­ate a log of activ­i­ties for analy­sis or shar­ing. Some watch­es can serve as full GPS watch­es, dis­play­ing maps and cur­rent coor­di­nates, and record­ing tracks. Users can “mark” their cur­rent loca­tion and then edit the entry’s name and coor­di­nates, which enables nav­i­ga­tion to those new coor­di­nates. As com­pa­nies add com­pet­i­tive prod­ucts into the mar­ket, media space is becom­ing a desired com­mod­i­ty on smart watch­es.

With Apple, Sony, Sam­sung, and Motoro­la intro­duc­ing their smart watch mod­els, 15% of tech con­sumers use wear­able tech­nolo­gies. This is a dense mar­ket of tech con­sumers who pos­sess buy­ing pow­er, which has attract­ed many adver­tis­ers. It is expect­ed for mobile adver­tis­ing on wear­able devices to increase heav­i­ly by 2017 as advanced hyper­tar­get­ing mod­ules are intro­duced to the devices. In order for an adver­tise­ment to be effec­tive on a smart watch, com­pa­nies have stat­ed that the ad must be able to cre­ate expe­ri­ences native to the smart watch itself.

Sport watch” func­tion­al­i­ty often includes activ­i­ty track­er fea­tures as seen in GPS watch­es made for train­ing, div­ing, and out­door sports. Func­tions may include train­ing pro­grams (such as inter­vals), lap times, speed dis­play, GPS track­ing unit, Route track­ing, dive com­put­er, heart rate mon­i­tor com­pat­i­bil­i­ty, Cadence sen­sor com­pat­i­bil­i­ty, and com­pat­i­bil­i­ty with sport tran­si­tions (as in triathlons). Oth­er watch­es can coop­er­ate with an app in a smart­phone to car­ry out their func­tions.

They may be lit­tle more than time­pieces unless they are paired, usu­al­ly by Blue­tooth, with a mobile phone. Some of these only work with a phone that runs the same mobile oper­at­ing sys­tem; oth­ers use a unique watch OS, or oth­er­wise are able to work with most smart­phones. Paired, the watch may func­tion as a remote to the phone. This allows the watch to dis­play data such as calls, SMS mes­sages, emails, and cal­en­dar invites, and any data that may be made avail­able by rel­e­vant phone apps. Some fit­ness track­er watch­es give users reports on the num­ber of kilo­me­ters they walked, hours of sleep, and so on.
