IFA 2013: Watch out!

Since the mobile phone has come into our lives for good, we fully accept its presence and even feel naked without it (try to forget it! you will feel the emptiness). This intelligent device has become our best friend. Nobody knows your deepest secrets better than your phone. It is always close to you.

But, our “best friend” is now getting a surprising new competitor – namely the smart watch.

It is a very special “new friend” because this one will hold your hand and keep you connected with everything around you. This is the very beginning of the next wearable technology era and a start of the new generation of Bluetooth Low Energy technology that enabled the analogue watch  to become an integral part of our increasingly connected life.
