On our post about what we thought Apple would do in 2013 we shared some information on a iWatch. As it turns out we are not the only people thinking about it.
COOKOO watch which originally started on Kickstarter has now been launched worldwide.
The company describes the watch as a designer watch that combines analog movement with a connected digital display. By using a freely available app, users can pick and choose which notifications that appear on their watch.
The watch can display notifications for:
- Incoming Calls
- Missed Calls
- Facebook Messages and Posts
- Calendar Reminders
- When a Smart Device (iPhone, iPad, etc..) is out of range
- When a Smart Device (iPhone, iPad, etc..) is low on Battery
It also has a customizable command button which can find your phone, snap a photo, check-in to Facebook or tag your location on a map.
The Pebble is another project that started on Kickstarter and recieved over $10,000,000.
Pebble is the first watch built for the 21st century. It's infinitely customizable, with beautiful downloadable watchfaces and useful internet-connected apps. Pebble connects to iPhone and Android smart phones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and message
The Pebble will come with apps pre-installed, including a cycling app to measure speed, distance and pace through GPS, and a golf rangefinder app that supports more than 25,000 courses. More apps will be downloadable from the phone.
