ConnecteDevice cookoo watch hits Kickstarter
The next time you wear your watch, you might want to take a closer look at it. Just how does your timepiece affect your everyday life? Apart from it telling you the right time when you need it at a glance, are there moments when you wished that it could have done more – much, much more? I believe the answer comes in the affirmative, and for those who feel that they want something different with their timepiece, here is the ConnecteDevice cookoo watch that has arrived over at Kickstarter as a crowdfunding project.
Just what does the ConnecteDevice cookoo watch do? Well, it should help you live out the Dick Tracy lifestyle, albeit you must admit that talking to a watch seems rather silly when you think about it. The ConnecteDevice cookoo watch basically functions primarily as a timepiece, while it also does the work of reducing the everyday hassles of a connected life by letting you view all the important notifications that your smartphone has received on the watch’s face itself at but a glance. No longer can you make the excuse of missing that call, email or text message, since all incoming notifications can be set to appear on the cookoo’s face, and that too, accompanied by a vibration or audio alert.
Just how does the ConnecteDevice cookoo watch connect to your smartphone? The answer is simple – it does so via Bluetooth, and with this Bluetooth wireless technology, you are able to know what is happening on your smartphone in real time, never mind that the handset is out of sight. After all, you might not be able to have your iOS or Android powered smartphone on hand at all times, so this is where the cookoo watch comes in handy, showing you the relevant information at a glance. It will play nice with the latest Bluetooth SMART READY devices such as the iPhone 4S, new iPad, HTC One X, and Samsung Galaxy S3, amongst numerous upcoming models.
You are able to configure the cookoo watch’s COMMAND button according to your preferences thanks to the Connected App, letting you find your phone, check-in on apps like Facebook, tag your location on the Connected App’s map, or take a group picture remotely, now how about that?
Expect the cookoo watch to come in a range of effable shades such as black on black, brushed stainless on black, blue on black, white on black, and green on black (special Kickstarter edition). The normal model will retail for $99.95, while blue and white color editions will cost $129.95.
