Smartwatch without Smartphone

One of the most recurrent criticism of the connected watch of the current generation, be it that of Apple or those running Google’s Android Wear, is that without connection to a phone they are little better than an MP3 player capable of giving time. But the deal would be about to change.

Thanks to the latest update of the operating system Android Wear, smart watches will become compatible with the cellular connections via the LTE network / 4 G for that many apps work with or without smart phone, for example make calls or receive messages directly from his wrist.

As explained in the product manager of Android Wear, Peter Ludwig: “no need to worry about the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi-your watch will automatically pass on the cellular connection when you are out of range.”

The first range of devices that will offer this feature as soon as its marketing are the latest LG Watch Urbane watches, announced this week, they will arrive in magazines by end of November.

Unfortunately, this new feature requires the transition to this new material and LTE connectivity, it will not available on watches existing Android, not even on the new smart watch TAG Heuer Connected, the first luxury watch Android made in Switzerland and sold for $ 1500 on Centralledwatch for LED rubber version. Officially released this week, this watch that was designed to compete with the Apple Watch in terms of quality and style, is now less interesting than the Urbane, designed by a manufacturer best known for its TVs and its smart phones.

But a smart watch costs $ 150 or $ 1500, it still represents a technological gamble, these devices will they prevail in the term or are they doomed to failure?

“The accessories categories smart [wearables] is still in its infancy and we plan to continue to introduce great devices to appeal to an audience very various”, explained Juno Cho, CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

Obsolescence caused by objects that use the silicone was the main problem for TAG Heuer, a brand that has made a name with products that last almost a lifetime.

But the Swiss watchmaker offers its customers free of its aircraft upgrades when the technology evolves. People who realize they are not done for the smart watches will be able to exchange their connected against a mechanical Tag Heuer Carrera watch.
