On August 28th, Samsung and LG announced their latest generation of smartwatches in separate press releases. The Samsung report flaunts its Gear S, a smartwatch with a curved screen that measures a full two-inches long. Capabilities of the watch include providing notifications from social networking websites, GPS, improved S Health features, turn-by-turn directions, a touch keyboard, and 3G connectivity. Samsung estimates battery life at two days for normal usage. Details regarding pricing and when the product goes to market were not released.
The LG release unveiled its new G Watch R, a smartwatch similar to the Samsung Gear S in features but not in appearance. While the Gear S has a screen that curves around the wrist in a streamlined style, the G Watch R has a 1.3-inch circular face – resembling a traditional wristwatch. The G Watch R provides notifications from calendars, weather information, heart rate, and other health information, and the watch will even continue running underwater (for up to 30 minutes in 1 meter of water).
Rumors have suggested that Apple will release a smartwatch this Fall as well.
A few years ago, wearable devices like these were nonexistent. Now, they are commonplace, and the improvements in the wearables market demonstrate several technology trends covered at CTOVision: wearables empower users and consumers; wearables expand the capabilities of existing digital systems and blur the lines between the cyber and physical worlds; and wearables create another batch of security, privacy, and software needs for programmers and policymakers.
