With so many cool gadgets being introduced today, for sure you get confused as to which one to get. That’s quite understandable since most gadgets today no longer offer just a single feature or works only one function but actually more. So if you are on the hunt for a new watch at the moment, then you may want to consider looking at a watch that works more than just telling the time. How about a watch that acts like a mini computer at the same time? Cool, right? If you’re interested to know more, then read on – it’s called the inPulse Watch.
Manufactured by Allerta, the inPulse Watch actually works more than a timepiece – it’s basically a mini computer on your wrist, which allows you to hack the on board OS in order to create apps for your own needs and pleasure. It comes with an SDK, and if you have C programming language skills, it will be a lot easier for you to control over the vibrating motor, button, timers, and more. And you know what’s more exciting about this, simply connect it with your Blackberry or Android cellphone, and you’ll be amazed at how this will alert you whenever there’s an incoming call, message, or email.
Now, you might want to know how long does the battery last. Well, according to the manufacturer, this could last up to 3 days, but of course depending on your usage. Take note, however, that if you will use this primarily with their standard notification app, which is preloaded on the watch, it’s likely that the battery will last only for 25-30 hours, especially if used with a Blackberry phone. Now, if you’re using this with Android phone, expect it to last for only about 6-7 hours.
