Smartwatches are smart. The clue is in the name. But they could be smarter. Better. More desirable. Because while this first generation of smartwatches are OK, they’re far from perfect. Let’s fix that by building the ultimate smartwatch.
Smarting For a Smarter Smartwatch
The Apple Watch is now out in the wild, with the earliest adopters already wearing the smartwatch so cool even James Bond would want one. There are also several Apple Watch alternatives already on the market, most of which are powered by Android Wear.
However, as nice as these smartwatches may be, none of them are essential. Sure, they’re desirable objects that millions of people are now buying, but they’re still a long way from being perfect. While perfection may be an impossible dream, the ultimate smartwatch is not.
Which is where you come in. We simply want to know, What Would Be On Your Ultimate Smartwatch? It doesn’t matter how banal or bizarre, how standard or special, or how easy or impossible your chosen features may be, our aim is to build the ultimate smartwatch. So anything goes!
Having said that, you may be looking for some guidance. Which is where we come in. After all, we don’t expect you to do all of the work for us. Just most of it.
Do you want a smartwatch that works independently? Or one which syncs to your smartphone? What sort of battery life do you want? What kind of apps do you think are essential? What little tricks should the hardware be capable of? What’s the ideal user interface? What, above all else, would you use a smartwatch for?
