The Martian Passport Smart Watch connects through Bluetooth 4.0 to offer a link between the device in your pocket and the one on your wrist. It's compatible with both Android and iOS devices and can be purchased for $299 at www.martianwatches.com. The Martian Smart Watch displays callers name, number, and some of the text directly on the Smart Watch. It can make calls or accept incoming phone calls by speaking into the built in mic on the side of the watch. Users will need to download an app from either the Play Store or App Store to interact with the Passport, but it's very simple to set up and use as you can see from the video below. Read More »
Comments Off on Martian Passport Smart Watch Review
There's a new Kickstarter project with a rather odd goal. Instead of going the Pebble route and asking people to support a watch that can connect to a smartphone, it wants to turn the phone into a smartwatch. Take a closer look at Smartlet, a wrist accessory that holds the iPhone in place so it can remove the smart watch middle man.
My gut reaction is to say that this is the dumbest thing I've seen all year. It's bulky, looks silly, and will probably be very impractical in daily life. However, for people who already use their iPhone with an armband or don't need mobility, maybe it's not so crazy? The Smartlet Kickstarter project has 20 days to go and it still needs to raise $25,000 to be successful. Backers who pledge $29 or $39 can be first in line to receive the product when it is released in May.
