The war tick on the wrist started
"International Herald" reporter Xie came from Beijing Samsung’s new smart watch Galaxygear officially available for a week, and this new watch gains from the new watches.
It has been given to the world’s first mainstream to wear new products, and the first amount of intelligent watches such as the first grade seems to be dim.
However, from Samsung, Sony and other new-old industries, go to Pebble, Qualcomm and other entrepreneurship, when more and more manufacturers join the battlefield of wearable smart equipment, the war on a wrist is fully started.
You can see the news. The watch online shopping watches From an ordinary consumer’s point of view, the design of the Galaxygear smart watch is still a medium-speaking medium, it has six colors version, the shape is close to a men’s business table, the touch screen surface is sapphire glass material The form is a metal brushed, and the material of the strap is rubber. Of course, the biggest role of Galaxygear is not used to see time. When the user’s smartphone receives SMS, photos, email, etc., can be prompted on the watch, and the user can put the wrist to the side of the ear to call or answer the phone.
The wristband part of the watch is within a 19 megapixel camera, which can be used to take photos and videos.
Its intelligence is also reflected in speech control, schedule management, alarm setting, weather inquiry can be implemented through voice commands. The computer on this wrist can support third-party applications, and there are currently 70 partner pre-installed applications.
They basically represent a few functions of smart devices: such as social needs, share their own location through Galaxygear and friends, share photos or notes at any time; allow information, view transportation, flight information; like smart wristbands on the market, this Works can also monitor tracking users’ exercise, heat consumption, etc. You can even use watch shopping, shooting photos of goods to upload, find the price of the corresponding item in eBay, and complete online transactions through the eBay application. The sound of spitting slots will continue to be available at 149 countries and regions on September 25, priced at $ 299, about 1800 yuan.
A watch that is equivalent to the mid-range smartphone has set so many features, and it seems to be worthwhile.
But don’t worry, the industry’s evaluation believes that the Samsung smart watch is generally lower than the market expectation, from the design to the hardware configuration, it encounters the sound of the spit.
First, the capacity of Galaxygear is only 315 mA. Since the processor of this smart watch is 800MHz, it is necessary to charge a charge every day under normal conditions of normal use.
I always remember that my watch will be powered off, and it will undoubtedly let the user experience great discounts.
At the same time, in the product material, the outside world is widely expected, and the sapphire glass is actually used. Analysts pointed out that the current flexible display is more difficult to achieve in large sizes. For cautious consideration, there is no bold breakthrough in the material. From the functions, Galaxygear gathered a lot of sprartine applications, but it was still a piece of accessories that could not be implemented separately. You need to connect to a tablet or mobile phone to send and receive SMS and mail.
2013, smart watch in the first year? At the same time in Samsung high-profile launched Galaxygear, the US Qualcomm is also announced a product called Toq, joining the smart watch. At the same time, Sony officially announced new SmartWatch2.
In China, the fruit shell electronics in Shengda also released the smart watch GeakWatch in June this year, which became the first smart watch in mainland China.
No wonder organism predicts that 2013 or will become a smart watch in the first year.
Gao Tong TOQ can be used together with Android, which uses low-power display technology that does not require background lights, which can always remain displayed, almost no charge, which makes TOQ battery life can reach 3 to 5 days, far higher than Samsung Galaxygear’s day.
Compared to other two, Sony’s SmartWatch2 is more designed and has waterproof functions.
Keeping the smart watch This cake is of course inseparable from the two giants of Microsoft and Apple. It has reported that Microsoft’s smart watch will use special material for nitrogen oxide. This aluminum material is translucent, and the hardness is three times that of ordinary glass.
Microsoft smart watches will be equipped with Win8 systems, plan to be compatible with all Windows equipment, is expected to be officially launched next year. Apple is invested in 100 engineers to develop smart watch IWATCH, which is expected to be released during the year.
Although Apple remains silent and low-key, the online is widely circulated is that IWATCH may be equipped with a curved glass screen. After the real revolution has not arrived, the smart watch is expected to be the fourth screen after the removal of the TV, computer, and mobile phones. American Pebble’s smart watch is the earliest available in the market, and the pre-sale volume has reached 10,000.
For global speaking, this year’s intelligent watches is expected to ship 1 million, which is obviously huge compared with the billions of shipments that smart phone. Organity predicts that in 2014, we will wear smart equipment, which is expected to exceed 1.5 billion US dollars per year. A report released by Switzerland pointed out that by 2017, speech technology, biometric technology, communication, cloud storage and power technology smart watches and other wearable devices will reach 50 billion US dollars. On the website of the website Kickstarter raised from the United States, the most popular project is a smart watch, the latest Agent smart watch project promotion is 100,000 US dollars; Pebble also completed exceeding the expected excess funds because smart watches completed exceeding the expected excess fundraising.
The temptation of this huge cake in the future is undoubtedly one of the main causes of Samsung and other manufacturers.
However, the industry analysis is generally believed that there is not enough to have a smartphone connection function. The smart watch can have multiple intelligence, what kind of application can be installed, bringing more convenience to people’s lives, is the key to the mainstream people. People are looking forward to the arrival of smart watch revolutions & hellip; & hellip; but new products such as Galaxygear do not really represent future smart watches.
The website of the US "Microcomputer World" magazine website has been evaluated that new products from recently have not set off a revolution for the smart watch market. They don’t really work hard. Samsung has not tried to ignite, define or dominate the upcoming smart watch. revolution. It is foreseeable that a large number of similar equipment will emerge during the coming years. Including Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Acer, Foxconn, Google, Toshiba will launch a respective smart watch, so the article believes that for most people, it is best to continue to wait for the real revolution to the intelligence The watch becomes small enough, beautiful enough, price, function and practicality can make us satisfied.
