Watches Ahead of The Time
This is one segment of wearable gadgets that is already available in India. Most smart watches are extensions of the smartphone, while the others are replacements. So while the first segment let you read phone alerts, add apps and even keep tab of your fitness, the latter lets you actually make calls James Bond style.
Apple and Samsung seem to be in a mad race to bring their own versions of these devices. No one knows how they will shape up.
The latest Pebble Smartwatch, for instance, pairs with iOS and Android devices to offer everything from email to music on your wrists. Pebble has released a developer APK and you will soon see apps that use the capabilities of this and other smart watches. You can also buy a Filip watch for your kid so that you know where you little one is, thanks to the inbuilt GPS. It also works as a phone. Time seems to be perfect for these watches.
