Technology is a wonderful thing. Once we were happy for the humble watch to tell us the time, but now the gadget-obsessed consumer demands more. Enter Seiko with their bluetooth watch.
Seiko’s prototype timepiece has just been unveiled in Japan. Designed for mobile phone owners (so effectively, all of us), the watch can connect to a mobile phone and display important information on your wrist, such as battery condition, if you have a new message and network signal strength. In addition, the subject and sender of the received sms can also be displayed if you install software from Seiko onto your mobile phone. When you receive a call or sms, the bluetooth watch can play a preset ringtone or even vibrate.
Not exactly life-changing, but a smart looking watch and a nice idea that we’re sure to hear a lot more about in future.
