Smartwatch

A wearable computing device worn on a user’s wrist that offers functionality and capabilities similar to those of a smartphone. Smartwatches are designed to, either on their own or when paired with a smartphone, provide features like connecting to the internet, running mobile apps, making calls, messaging via text or video, checking caller ID, accessing stock and weather updates, providing fitness monitoring capabilities, offering GPS coordinates and location directions, and more.

A number of companies either currently have smart watches on the market or are rumored to be developing smartwatches, including Google, Samsung, Apple (the “iWatch“), LG, Sony, Pebble and various others.

While the smartwatch industry is still in its infancy, new and emerging technologies like Corning s flexible Willow Glass, Bluetooth 4.0 and more power-efficient processors and displays are providing the potential for the development of more advanced, longer-lasting smartwatches than those currently available.
