Martian Watch offers Bluetooth voice command at your disposal

Many years ago, when the mobile phone was something large and unwieldy, there was this future-forward comic known as Dick Tracy, and he had this new kind of watch which doubled up as a mobile phone. Certainly the stuff of dreams, but as we plunge headlong into the 21st century, we realize that a watch cum mobile phone is not exactly the most fun or practical device to own, and a smartphone would be far more useful. After all, the smartphone’s form factor works in its favor, not to mention that it is a simple matter to have a clock program running on it. Today, we shall take a closer look at the yet unreleased Martian Watch that offers Bluetooth voice command capability.
Since timing is everything in this day and age, the Martian Watch (no, despite its name, it does not hail from the red planet) is a Bluetooth enabled timepiece that offers voice command capability, and is touted to be the first of its kind in the world. Basically, all you need to do is speak to your timepiece, and it will listen to what you have to say while carrying out the different instructions from your wrist to the smartphone itself.
The Martian Watch is expected to debut at CES later next month (which is just a couple of weeks away actually), where the Martian Watch will be demonstrated on the CES showfloor, offering a truly unique hands-free experience to the consumer. You are able to communicate without having to touch your smartphone, as you access the phone’s plethora of voice commands, where among them include placing and receiving calls, sending voice-to-text messages, listening and responding to text messages, setting calendar notifications and reminders, controlling music, and searching the web.
I would say that this is also safer, as no one would know you are sporting one of the newer handsets since all of it can be achieved without having to remove your smartphone from the pocket or purse.
There is no word on pricing just yet, but we do expect the Martian Watch to be released to the masses shortly after it debuts at CES.
