You may be interested in reading the first part with the first four aspects of the 7 problems that smart watches have not yet solved.
If smart watches are to succeed, they will have to start being like conventional watches, at least that is. A conventional watch may have a battery that does not need to be replaced for years. In the case of smart watches, we are not talking about a few months, or a few weeks, it is that we are talking about a day. Most smart watches have to be charged like a smartphone or even more, and of course, that makes them useless, and that in the end we prefer a normal watch. They have to find a way for smart watches to have greater autonomy. Although this will be the most complicated, because it is a problem that is still present in smartphones, and that is complicated by having less space in watches. Perhaps those that have been seen to include a battery in the watch band would be good ideas.
5.- Water and shock resistance
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had the bad luck of hitting clocks against walls and ending up scratching them. It doesn’t matter if you have a sapphire crystal, but if you have a smartwatch, you will know that you could charge the screen, and the entire watch. They are more like a smartphone, they don’t resist shocks. But it is also that they do not resist being under water either. Yes, some at a depth of less than one meter of water and less than half an hour. We can no longer use it to go swimming. And that in the case of those that are really waterproof, because in this regard there is still a lot to advance. There are some resistant to water, but then they have water vapor inside the screen.
And finally, the price should be improved. I can’t spend more on a smart watch, which still doesn’t work well, than on a mid-range mobile, which works much better. Perhaps it is true that the technologies necessary to manufacture one and the other are different, or that to achieve certain characteristics the watch must be more expensive. That is possible, but a 50 euro smartwatch, with half the functions of a Motorola Moto 360, would be bought by all Android users, just to try and wear it, and this would serve as a first approach to the world of watches. smart. It can not be that time passes and that instead of getting watches with a price lower than 150 euros, what we see are watches at 400 euros, or speak of thousands of euros. That doesn’t make any logic, and it needs to be fixed.
