Battery life is estimated at three to four days for typical usage before recharging.
SmartWatch is not the only wrist-based smartphone extension. The makers of the Pebble watch, which connects to iPhone and Android smartphones over Bluetooth, recently raised more than a $1 million in 28 hours on crowdsourced funding site KickStarter.com.
Pebble emphasizes its status as a new kind of platform for apps. An app for cyclists allows Pebble to access GPS on the phone and show speed, distance, and pace data on a bike, and there's a similar app for runners.
For golfers, a Pebble app allows a player to view current distance to the green on the wrist. Other apps include alerts for when your bus is showing up, and there's an SDK for developers to create their own applications.
Pebble's prices run from $99 to $125. Some observers have suggested that, since a smartphone is also required, smart wrist watches may not take off as extensions to another electronic device until their price drops considerably.
