Trend of Smartwatch

Wearable computing device is trending now. The revolution of “Wearables” foresees a good market in the technology driven world.  After Google Glass, it is the smartwatch category, which has drawn attention of both media and technology bluff. Considering the usability of the concept of smartwatch, almost all top players including Google, Apple, Samsung, Sony, and LG are engaged in expanding their horizons.

A recent survey conducted by NextMarket Insights concluded that smartwatch market is forecast to reach a total of 15 million smartwatched shipped worldwide in 2014, up from 5 million in previous year.

Let us know in what way smartwatch can help us? Smartwatch is basically an interface for smartphone. One may make and receive calls, send and receive SMS, control music, capture images and record videos (if there is camera fitted in smartwatch), and interact with the phone in various other ways making it easier for user to use much of the smartphone without the need of actually taking it out from the pocket and bag. The smartwatch can follow touch, voice and gesture commands.

The real use of smartwatch can be justified while driving or doing things when your fingers are not free to make use of it and your sweet little smartwatch will do all for you with just simple command :)
