Opinions on smartwatches


Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope im putting this in the right forum. Im wondering what your opinions are smartwatches are, if they're a gimmick or not. Personally I find them to be an interesting new technology and I just invested in the kreyos meteor http://igg.me/at/kreyos/x/2749354. Do you think my investment was a waste of money.... or did I back the right product?

I have a Pebble smart watch that I helped fund through kickstarter. I really like it. The thing is water proof, the battery lasts a week on a charge, there are lots of apps and custom watch faces for it and the e-ink display is sharp and easy to see in daylight. I also have a nice Suunto Core military spec watch and an ipod mini with watch band adapter as well. Watches are a great way to show off technology and for someone to show off their geek cred. I personally welcome the new smart watches coming out and I would definitely consider an iWatch or whatever else that comes out if it is as good and fun to customize as my Pebble.

I think smart watches will be an interesting and profitable market but no where near the run away train that smart phones became. I think the market will turn on functionality and price point. I think most people will resist paying a $200 for a cell phone and then $150 for a smart watch.

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
