Smartwatches are now gaining popularity ever since the successful funding of Pebble on Kickstarter last year. We also have rumours of Google, Microsoft, Apple, Samsung and others already working on smartwatch. Similar to how smartphones have evolved over the years with tons of new features being added, smartwatches are also in the same league. Today, smartwatches have the ability to sync with your smartphone and get data from it.
We had covered some of the best smart watches available as of now and we also expect 2013 could see more of them. Recently we covered a new smartwatch project on Kickstarter, called Agent. Here is another new smartwatch project on Indiegogo, called the Kreyos Meteor smartwatch.
Kreyos Meteor is probably the first innovative smartwatch which lets you use voice and gestures to control the functions of the watch.
The Kreyos Meteor is a hands-free, two-way communication system that you wear on your wrist, on your belt, on your bike, or even on a lanyard around your neck. As the only waterproof, interactive smartwatch to feature a microphone and speaker, the Kreyos Meteor is the first to allow you to control your smartphone – and your smartphone functions – remotely using voice commands.
There is also gesture control on this smartwatch. Using a 3-axis gyroscope, controlling your Kreyos Meteor Smartwatch is as easy as moving your hand. You can connect your smartwatch to iPhone, Android and also Windows Phone 8 devices to control and manage them.
Customizing your watchface is easy as the Meteor includes more than 20 digital and analog watch faces. Change the look and feel of your watch whenever you feel like it.
Along with this, there are few great accessories as well, like the belt clip, LanYard and the watch bands.
