The future of smart watches is supposedly bright. Yet, no device so far presented by the manufacturers is particularly inspiring. At least, none seems sufficiently successful and useful to justify the forecasts of analysts who believe that this market will exceed 90 billion dollars a year by 2018.
Several smart watches are expected in the coming months, including LG, Motorola, and TUCSONSMARTWATCHES according to the more persistent rumors of Apple. Is that one of them will finally meet the expectations of fans? Perhaps. If not, here are five items on which manufacturers should focus to allow the kind of popularity.
New features, missing phones
The perfect intelligent watch should propose new features, not found in smart phones, which has very little proposed so far.
Sensors related to health (to track his heart rate, among others) are good examples, but we could also add to this list of security features, to act as a second factor of authentication in addition to a password, for example. A watch could be used to unlock his laptop or tablet, once it has entered his password, as always.
Additional features to a smart phone
A smart watch should also offer additional features that smart phones offer already, without so far are only a pale copy of those of the usual mobile. A good example that already exists is the ability to vibrate his watch when we receive notifications, which is particularly interesting in a noisy place or when our phone is in a bag.
I hope that the manufacturers, however, offer other new features that nobody thought.
Long battery life
A watch should not be charged on a daily basis. This is a no-brainer, but several launched watches far must just be connected every night, or almost.
A good smart watch should work on a single charge for several days, thanks to good energy, but also to more original ways of charging, to capture the kinetic energy of our movements, for example.
A decent pace
A smart watch should not necessarily seem like a sports bracelet, as is too often the case. If we want to use it constantly, it must provide an acceptable appearance for users at all moments of their lives. Some will find nothing wrong with a sporty look, but others would certainly prefer a more elegant appearance.
On this point, note that the bike 360 unveiled by Motorola a few weeks ago seems to be a step in the right direction.
To each his watch
Like all jewellery, watches are personal objects. Ideally, the watch should therefore allow users to express their tastes and personality. If everyone is forced to wear the same, it will be missed.
Unfortunately, this last point could be particularly problematic for tech manufacturers, who are accustomed to the series production of identical devices. The sale of custom bracelets and the possibility of adjusting the watch interface could certainly help, but it remains to be seen if this will be enough.
And what interests me less?
Regarding me, several elements often associated with smart watches absolutely not interested.
So, I don’t like the functions of phones that are stupidly adapted to watches. Read his emails on his wrist, after all, is less effective than on his phone’s 5-inch screen. And if the goal is to be more subtle to table when looking at his messages, it is missed anyway. Have a mediocre camera on his watch, while his phone is easily accessible, is also a rather limited interest.
Autonomous watches, which themselves access the Internet through a cellular network, do appear to me not very interesting either, since the average consumer will have his phone on him, and few people are willing to pay for two separate connections.
What is the perfect watch will eventually be offered by Apple? Is it rather Google which holds the solution with Android Wear, or Pebble, or even a third-party company that has yet to see the day? Hard to say.
Possibly that enthusiasm of techno fans and manufacturers won’t spread never in public. If manufacturers insist on stupidly replicate the experience of smart phones as they do now, it’s quite possible.
However, I believe that in following these some instructions a smart watch could possibly change the situation and enable this industry to really take off.
