As early as last year’s Global Consumer Electronics Show, smart watches have begun to emerge. Smart watches are both decorative and practical, and are favored by new and old technology companies. At the 2013 CES, smart watches were even more exciting. The technology blog site TheVerge has recently rated several of the best smartwatches at this CES. Among them are emerging powers such as Pebble and Cookoo starting from Kickstarter, as well as traditional electronic giants such as Casio and Toshiba.
The following rankings are in no particular order:
1. Pebble smart watch
A week ago, the Pebble smartwatch, which was a great success on the creative project fundraising platform Kickstarter, sent a mysterious invitation to the sponsors, saying ‘It’s time.’ On January 9, Pebble announced at CES that smart watch products will be shipped on January 23. Pebble’s shipment time has been delayed last year, and 85,000 subscribers who have been waiting for more than half a year have finally hoped for good news! The Pebble smart watch sample displayed at CES is exquisite in workmanship, the system runs smoothly, and the user interface is very agile. The watch body is available in five colors (but the strap is only black and white). The price is $ 149 (about RMB 930) yuan).
2. Casio’s new G-Shock Bluetooth watch
年底 At the end of last year, Casio released this very popular G-Shock watch with Bluetooth connection GB-5600A in Japan. It is reported that this watch will be available in the United States this summer. Like the previous GB-6900, this GB-5600A supports connection with mobile phones through Bluetooth 4.0, and can display and notify missed calls, emails, alarms, and sync vibration. Although Casio stated that the current product can only be synchronized with the iOS system, it will also support the Android system in the next six months. At the same time, Casio has not announced the official price of GB-5600A, but we expect its price to be around 180 US dollars (about 1100 yuan).
3. VivoPlay watch that helps parents track where their children are.
IvoVivoPlay is a good tool for parents to keep in touch with their children-it is waterproof and can be worn as a watch on your wrist or on objects such as school bags or keychains. It uses GPS, Wi-Fi and GSM to show the child’s location, and also allows parents to control the sending of text messages and phone calls through the corresponding smart phone application.
4. ‘World’s Thinnest’ Watch CST-01 E Ink
STCST (Central Standard Timing) showed the E Ink ultra-thin watch with a thickness of only 0.8 mm at CES. It compresses several flexible components into 0.5 mm thick watch components, and then inlays on a piece of stainless steel sheet bent into a bracelet shape. It is extremely thin and even a little worrying that it may break if accidentally accidentally.
5, ‘not smart enough’ Cookoo smart watch
OoCookoo is another smartwatch that has successfully funded on Kickstarter in addition to Pebble, and it has already started shipping. Compared with other smart watches, its dial with hours, minutes and seconds is more like a traditional watch, and its function is mainly to display corresponding icons on the dial when a message reminder is issued. Its size is slightly larger for girls, and it almost supports connection with iOS devices. In addition, it has a function of recording location, social software check-in and camera shutter.
6. Traditional Toshiba smart watch
The smart watch prototype displayed by Toshiba at CES resembles a traditional watch and is also equipped with a dark leather strap. It can connect with iOS or Android phones to receive reminders, read mobile maps and navigation, and test the user’s pulse. It does not use ‘electronic paper’ display technology, but uses a 1.7-inch OLED display with a resolution of 200 * 320 and is equipped with an ARM processor.
7. Leikr multi-function GPS sports watch
Developed by former Nokia engineers and designed specifically for athletes, equipped with a 2-inch color display and Gorilla Glass, supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and built-in 8GB map data provided by the map service provider OpenStreetMap. It can display time when GPS is not running Distance, speed, calories and more. As a watch, it is significantly larger, and its shape is not beautiful, but its positioning is not a fashion accessory.
