Smartwatches seem to be taking over the gadget market at the moment, but one of the big problems seem to be poor battery life. However, Vector has recently come on the scene and raised hopes about a new type of watch. The new revolutionary idea could bring some serious competition to the Apple smartwatches and Google watches which we are set to see later on in the year.
The Baselworld show in Switzerland this year was the platform which saw Vector announcing the new line of smartwatches which are currently being created. A device which doesn’t take much to power will reportedly have a battery life of a whopping 30 days. Having an Apple smartwatch in standby mode constantly will get you nowhere near this amount of battery life, so it’s no wonder that this is such a huge selling point.
However, there are certain sacrifices which might need to be made if you want to get a smartwatch which will give you such a high level of battery life. The saying, “less is more” certainly seems to be true in this situation, since the gadget will come without a touchscreen, which may be a problem for some. However, there are three buttons which can be used to control the device, so this won’t be an issue. The monochrome display has a body main from stainless steel. You can choose the type of strap you want from the following options: metal, leather or rubber. The elegant yet simple design will seem more like a real watch than a smartwatch; however, you can still take advantage of the smart features. This is one of the reasons why this smartwatch will be the perfect choice for those who might want a device with these features included but don’t want anything which might be deemed too “complicated”.
Many people will be disappointed to hear that these smartwatches won’t be available to buy until the summer. It’s difficult to tell yet how these new gadgets will fare in a market where they are competing against Apple, Google and other larger companies. However, Vector could very possibly be targeting a niche which could make them very successful. For now, we can only speculate, but in the near future, smartwatch fans will be able to see exactly whether there is a market for these type of devices.
