Local online seller and owner of Widget City, Martin Bornilla, recently informed me that they are bringing in some of the well-known wearable connected devices to the Philippines. What are these products? And how much are they? Check these out!
Flex can track your steps, distance, calories burned and active minutes. It can also monitor how long and well you sleep. It is also your sleep companion – it can wake you up with a silent pulsating alarm. There are also LED lights to indicate the progress of your daily goal. It is very slim, comfortable and very easy to wear. It is sold with both large and small wristbands.
Pebble is the benchmark of long lasting and highly efficient smartwatch. Apart from its battery life that can last up to 5-7 days, Pebble has lots of Android app compatibility like controlling music playing on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora and more.. You can view notifications from email, SMS, Caller ID, calendar and your favorite apps on your wrist. You can also download watch faces and apps to suit your style and interests. Here’s the kicker – it works best on both Apple and Android devices.
Smartband is pretty much similar to what Fitbit Flex can do. It can also track everything you do like your movements, communications and entertainment. Unfortunately, Smartband is only compatible with Android devices.
What do you think of this wearables, guys? If you ask me, while I see these products very interesting, I am more excited to see Widget City start offering the upcoming Google Wear devices such as Moto 360.
