cool idea & look , but ..
the only tech data available now (web page):
"rock-solid stability and amazing functionalities"
.. and the 50% advance pre-order for a device that hasn't been reviewed and from a company that has no market history ? ... keep my fingers crossed however
Hopefully it will live up to the advance billing. Even though it needs to be linked to a smartphone, it still appears very useful. It would be much cooler to just check your watch (arm) during a meeting rather than pulling out your cell phone (which should be banned for all, including managers and executives, at meetings).
Very cool. Given that I just got off of a flight back from ESC Boston, my mind jumps to that context. I can see one of two things happening. Either, we'll now all have a way to keep ourselves digitally entertained even take off and landing, or the FAA will end up making us all take off and turn off our wrist watches at take off and landing.
Actually I used to have a Cell Phone watch a couple years ago. Visit http://www.cellphonewatch.com/ to get a flavor for what is available. They are coming along, but not with Android yet, so I am waiting patiently.
Looking over the I'm Watch website I see you can pre-order for delivery before the end of November 2011.
I see it costs 249 euro (about $350) in color finish aluminum plus something for shipment
it costs 14,999 euro (about $20,000) in white gold and diamonds.
For the more expensive option I would hope they would deliver to the door by hand with no extra charge!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
