Latest Trends in Smartwatches

Dec 16th 2015 at 4:51 AM

People may still be in denial regarding how much of a worthy investment a device such as a smartwatch may be, yet that isn’t stopping many of the best brands from working to innovate in this field. There are several ways in which smartwatches are evolving to help adapt to people’s needs. While several of the latest device sport some fantastic smartwatch specifications, there are newer trends that are still evolving in this field.

One of the chief complaints that many people tend to have regarding smartwatches is that their displays aren’t very pliable. For smaller wrists, this becomes a major problem, as stiff displays not only stand out and look unsightly but also tend to be uncomfortable to wear. So now, according to the latest smartwatch news, brands are trying to come up with such a material to make displays, which will be naturally bendable. Yes, bendable displays are now the future, as these will be easier to handle and will adapt to the contour of the individuals wrist, making it feel like a second layer of skin. Wove is the brand that has taken the lead in this matter, coming up with a display which is in sync with the rest of the strap.

Another feature which may shock smartwatch users is the new use that is being employed by this device in the UK. As reported in the latest smartwatch news, MvBii is a small British company that has decided to take on a much debated topic - stress in the workplace. The scientists at this firm have devised special algorithms to understand what triggers stress and accordingly, have designed a smartwatch that goes red to show an employee who is stressed out or burned out. This will enable workers to understand to what extent they can tolerate stress and when they get burned out, what they can do about it. Based in Cambridge, this Zing smartwatch hopes to thus make stress in the workplace a palpable thing that managers need to be worried about.

Smartwatch brands are also trying to incorporate other features, which may mimic what was seen with the Google Glass. This includes recording what is happening live in front of you and then, streaming it on a connected smartphone. They are also now trying to incorporate a camera into the newer smartwatches, so that users can take pictures whenever they get a chance to capture a moment. This of course, creates the discomfort of a slightly chunkier smartwatch, to make room for the camera and lens.

 

Smartwatches still have a long way to go before becoming mainstream enough. Even today, people are not satisfied with the latest smartwatch specifications and want something more than what is currently on offer.
