- About a day of battery life
- An HD display “the equivalent of a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away”
- Voice-recognition technology
- 12 gigabytes of usable storage
- 5-mexapixal camera that can record video in 720p HD
- Micro USB port for charging the batter
- Can connect over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi through an application called MyGlass that runs on newer versions of Android
- Adjustable nose pads
- A 1.26-inch, 144×168-pixel, black-and-white E-Paper display: this helps extends the battery life and ensures it can be read outdoors
- The watch is controlled with four buttons – a menu button on the left; up, down and selection buttons on the right. Contacts for its USB-ended charger also line its left side
- Can be used with an iPhone or Android devices
- Users can choose which notifications appear on the smart watch screen: incoming calls, text messages, calendar reminders, emails, Tweets and more.
For me, the girlfriend of a computer geek who MUST own every device invented, the attraction in the smart watch is that it’s less invasive: it notes the role a smart device can play in your life but it also doesn’t feel the need to take over your life.
We can’t reverse the damage smart devices are already waging on the way we interact with each other as a society, or our faltering attention spans, but surely we can say no to a device that is only going to make the situation worse. When it comes down to it, I can handle a watch but I don’t think I can handle Google Glass.
