If you look hard enough (or even just a little) you can find videos of the iPhone 6 already on the internet. We know almost everything about it at this point… but we know very little about the wearable that is rumored to be announced as well.
We’ve seen the offerings from Motorola and Google’s Android Wear program, and we’ve seen what Samsung is doing with the Galaxy Gear (using their on OS, Tizen), but ultimately they do the same things – display notifications on your wrist. Earlier versions of the Galaxy Gear had a camera on the band which is interesting, but made the band really bulky.
Before the Apple event tomorrow I wanted to know what you guys wanted.
I’m a watch guy, I feel naked when I don’t wear one. I like it because the time shows me a picture of my day. I like a glanceable, visual representation of my day.
Those are my biggest wants out of a “smart watch.” Am I missing something? What do you want? Is it anything other than “notifications on my wrist,” because that seems… kind of not interesting to me.
Let me know and I’ll try and sift through them before the Apple event tomorrow.
Moto 360 Review
I just read The Verge’s Moto 360 review. It’s the smart watch I was really looking forward to because it’s actually round, like the watch I wear every day. It’s a bummer that the battery life and Android Wear (Google’s software) fall short, and make this a product I could never buy. But it feels like a step in the right direction. It feels like we’re going to get there.
And while you’re reading (or watching the video review) notice the photos. The photos are killer.
