Question

Do you want a better, more unique, connected experience?

We have project in Finland making a wearable the connects to all other devices (computers, tablets, home systems, and phones). This wearable is being designed to be both voice and gesture based (with a pico projector), worn from the neck or wrist. We wanted to get some opinions on the device to make it better.

Does it tell time for say a month or more per charge?

I've lost count of such things that need a daily charge. Mind you I've been into wearables since the PalmOS wristwatch.

It wasn't bad for its day but it ran the little CPU at 16MHz which was far more than was needed for a watch. How do I know this? I wrote apps for it back then.

The device.

Depends on your usage. We are making a device that can be interchangeable with different power options. Thus, you can use a solar powered option or kinetic. This will extend the battery life to a week with moderate use, but less time with heavy usage.

Opinon and info

Hello, sounds like a cool project, to help with your question, I have recently written a market analysis for wearable technology and have written a thesis paper on it including a website. The website isn't finished but you can see my full report at the bottom of the website, in this report I summarize american consumers opinions and what determines their purchase decision of wearable technology, i think this will be a great answer to your question. I received my info from various sources as well as my own consumer research as well.
Hope this helps!

(NT) What you didn't share was what you bought and use.

Apple watch

I bought an apple watch and ended up returning it for the same reasons I discussed in my thesis project, the device is too expensive for the capabilities that it has, if the device was more independent from the phone for example had cellular capabilities I probably would have had less negative dissonance with the product.

So you returned it.

What smart watch did you keep? Or was the finding that for you there is no product today?

None

I ended up not buying another smart watch. I will most likely wait until another new version of the apple watch comes out and then buy that, for now ill stick with my new iPhone 6s.
