So while I’m checking in on twitter tonight I noticed an Android dev/designer sporting a cool watch. Looking even closer I notice a gmail icon on it. Wait, what? It looks like the company called metawatch is trying to save the watch.
I haven’t worn a watch in at least seven years. Since cellphones started showing the time when someone asks me I usually pulled out my cell to answer them. Now it looks like some will look at their watch instead of pulling out their smartphone to see certain notifications. Cool. Here is some more information: -via Android
Meta Watch is a developer-friendly smartwatch used to heighten user engagement and drive app usage. Meta Watch, when paired with iOS (4S) or Android-based smart phones, enable new kinds of glanceable interactions. In the same way that glancing at a wristwatch is more simple than pulling out a pocket watch to check the time, glancing at Meta Watch is more convenient than pulling your phone out of a pocket or handbag to view alerts, notifications, and cloud-based information.
