The latest Vector smartwatch, announced at Baselworld, is a device that blends a minimalist, no-frills design and appearance with a suite of high-tech features.
This watch has an impressive 30-day battery life made possible by a low-power custom operating system. The watch's software can be linked to iOS, Android and Windows devices to provide notifications, alarms and app functionality. The watch uses If This Then That (IFTT) web services to encourage users to create their own "recipes" or rules to tell the device what to do. Users will be able to create rules or various web services including social media, email and home automation.
Looking at this watch, it's hard to believe that it packs as many high-tech features as it does because it looks so lightweight and simple. Going forward, this is the kind of design that will really stand out in the increasingly saturated smartwatch range, as customers look for futuristic technology despite being unwilling to compromise on their sense of style.
