Car Tech Video: Nissan Smartwatch

1:45 /

At the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show, Nissan unveiled their newest concept, and it wasn't a car. The Nismo Smart watch interacts with your Nismo vehicles giving you speed, fuel consumption and directions while also monitoring your heart rate and possibly your mood.

If you don't feel close enough to your car, Nissan has a way you can wear it on your wrist. Here at the Frankfurt Auto Show, they brought the Nismo Watch. This is a smartwatch, you put them on your wrist and it tells you things like your car's fuel economy, your car's speed and other sort of telemetric information, but it also gives you information about yourself. It gives you your heart rate and Nissan's working on things where it might, I don't know, give you your brain pulses or something like that and the idea is you wear this watch while you're driving-- while you're driving on the track in your Nismo car, 'cause this watch will only work with Nissan's Nismo models. That means the Juke Nismo, the 370Z Nismo and the GTR Nismo, so you're driving on the track, you can see your vehicle speed and you can also see your heart rate on the same display. I don't know if this thing actually tells time but it tells all these other cool things and apparently if you get like too hot, if you're getting that red mist while you're racing around the track, this thing will give you a warning like maybe you should slow down, maybe you should hit the pits for a little bit. Now, at the show here, at the Frankfurt Show, they've got-- Nissan's got this watch kinda locked away in this plastic container here. It's-- 'cause it's a concept. Like some of the concept cars what we see here, you can't actually touch it, you can't see it, in fact, the display they have in here is really just a piece of paper. But they do promise that it'll have a full smartwatch capability. It'll have a Bluetooth link to the car for getting all that information back and forth. It'll have a lithium-ion battery with about a week's battery lifetime. So, here's the Nissan Nismo Watch concept at Frankfurt Auto Show.
