If you should ask me what’s my take on smartwatches, I would say it is a really good idea. As a matter of fact, i currently own two (A smartwatch and a smart bracelet) and the experience has been really cool so far.
We are gradually moving into an era where using a smartwatch sorta makes you smarter than just using a normal wristwatch that tells nothing other than time and date. Imagine when you are in the public, someone’s calling your mobile phone and you could see who’s calling on the smartwatch tiled around your wrist without having to bring out your phone from your pocket. Sounds pretty cool right?
Now, most of these smartwatches can work independently without the need of a phone. You can make and receive calls, send and receive messages, surf the web, listen to songs and more from a simple smartwatch placed around your wrist. One of such kind of smartwatches is the K8 3G Smartwatch.
The K8 3G smartwatch comes with a phone embedded in it. Take a look at the specification of the device below:
