iWatch: Smart Watch the iPod Nano should be
With technology accelerating its own pace, smart devices are no longer constrained to mobile phone or tablet PC. Google has launched its Google Glass last year — a complicated device ever made to substitute for smart phones, especially iphone serial. It enables wearers to take pictures, searching information, illustrate your position, temperature and anything a smart phone could do. Using VR technology, wearers of Google Glass are capable to obtain all necessary information from glass (work as screen), just like scenes shown in sci-fi films.
The most famous tech companies—Apple, Google, and Microsoft, all take one of the senses as their research direction and firmly believe that their targeted sense is bound to be the dominant way to interact with others in the near future. Apple developed siri (sense of hearing), Google released Google Glass (sense of vision), and Microsoft came up with Kinect (sense of feel). Recently in an attempt to compete against Google, Apple releases its latest art piece—iwatch.
Just like Google Glass, iWatch has no much association with ordinary watch except its appearance, whose functions are more like a smart phone—-lighter and smaller in size. However, it actually is more powerful than a phone.
iOS system will be iwatch’s standard configuration. As the best OS system on mobile device, iOS could provide consumers with smooth operating experience and similar interface as on iPhone or iPad. Besides, it’s reported that iWatch will permit apps from third parties, so the application of iOS will enable iWatch become an important chain in Apple’s eco-system. Apple will enlarge its OS coverage and tie users more closely to Apple’s products, which will produce significant influence on the future’s marketing strategy.
iTunes: syncing via WiFi
Since iOS is applied to iWatch, iTunes and App store will definitely available on iWatch. Due to its mini outline, engineers include WiFi and Bluetooth; in that case iWatch is capable of syncing data via wireless signal instead of traditional cable.
8- megapixel camera
Equipped with the same configuration as iPhone 4s, iWatch’s camera allows consumers to take high quality photos and record 1080p HD videos, as well, but in a more convenient manner. Imagine that, if you encounter a impressive scene or something worth recording, it’s not always easy to use your mobile phone; but a watch is totally different. Since it’s always attached to your wrist, you are able to capture a great moment in no time.
iWatch is actually more suitable for navigation for it set both your hands and mind free while reading maps in the busy streets.
Users could use headphones to gain access to iWatch via Bluetooth for beautiful music. Meanwhile, the device supports 1080p HD videos and Airplay mode.
With 8 megapixel camera, facetime first time to be transplanted to such a cool device.
Using a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, iWatch surely has a better endurance than iPod nano.
The only weakness of iWatch lies in its small screen which makes it hard to identify the content. Fortunately, Retina touch screen is selected to supplement its insufficiency in display.
With 16GB storage space, iwatch could easily satisfy users’ daily use, such as taking picture, record videos, piloting and also, get time details.
As we can see, iWatch is a great piece of technology which is both revolutionary and graceful. Though it’s only a concept, but I’m still looking forward to the day when we wear both Google Glass and iWatch for daily life coming soon.
