There are a few questions people ask themselves when it comes to smartwatches and their features. How powerful should a smartwatch really be in order to be useful? Is a smartwatch camera really necessary? How big does the screen have to be in order for the smartwatch to make sense at all? When it comes to size, it’s ultimately important to think about usability over comfort. That is something the Android smartwatch called the Rock is definitely battling.
We haven’t heard too much about the Rock smatwatch and its features, or at least I haven’t. The smartwatch itself is something out of the ordinary, and in my own humble opinion, it’s one of the few really cool smartwatches on the market today. Keep in mind though that I am personally a sucker for big watches, especially if they have an industrial design to them. This is definitely a smartwatch to check out if you are looking for a watch that is a little bit ahead of its competition. It’s an Android smartwatch that peers into the future.
There is a race going on when it comes to smartwatches and their features. Apple is waiting to see what the market wants before they put together their own “innovative” smartwatch, and that is how they will play the game this time around as well I am sure. In the meantime, other companies are actually leading the way when it comes to features and designs. Whether the most popular device will be an Android smartwatch or an iOS smartwatch is hard to say, that’s for users to decide.
I am sure we’ll see quite some innovative designs over the next year or two. So what exactly can this Android smartwatch do, and why should we get one? Let’s take a look at the specs right away, shall we? This particular Android smartwatch, dubbed the Rock, has a 2-inch capacitive screen, 8GB micro SD slot and a 2MP Camera. That’s not bad for a device you put on your arm. It of course also has a SIM card slot as well, so you can connect to the Internet and call someone using the touchscreen user interface, which seems to be pretty solid (at least when you look at the demonstration video).
If you’re thinking about buying this beast, you will have to be prepared to cough up some $213.85 over at Chinavasion. Included in that price is also a free 8GB TF card. It is not a bad price for a watch that is currently on the edge of Android smartwatch technology.

Many of the big technology companies are now gearing up efforts to produce the best and most innovative smartwatch on the market. There have been plenty presented so far, and some have been quite intriguing. It’s hard to say what features people are expecting, but they for sure sure want a smartwatch on their arm and quick. Are there any good ones in the pipeline? After having a look at the EmoPulse Smile smartwatch, I want to say yes.
We have been blasted with announcements for a couple of weeks now, but one of the main players on the market, Apple, is keeping quiet. Are they doing what some people say they are always doing? Are they surveying the market to see what the buyers want, and then they’ll create something that is in perfect line with what people expect? Only time will tell whether or not Apple will enter the smartwatch market at all, but one thing is for certain, and that is that the EmoPulse Smile smartwatch is not going to wait to present itself to the market.
The EmoPulse is sort of a wildcard since it appears to have had a short run on IndieGoGo, but it is nowhere to be found on the site now. Maybe they didn’t follow the rules of a legit IndieGoGo campaign, or they simply didn’t deliver on their promise. I honestly don’t know. They ended up doing what the innovators behind the Owlet Baby Bootie did, and they set up their own crowdfunding/pre-order website and are currently bringing their vision to the market. The question of course lingers whether the EmoPulse Smile smartwatch is even real.

The market has to decide whether or not this will become a success. It packs features that are beyond innovative, and those could come to put the EmoPulse Smile watch ahead of its competitors. What do you say about 4G network support, OMAP 5 processor, 128/256 GB flash card slot, USB 3.0 and NFC? It’s all coming together on a gorgeous curved touchscreen display that is sure to grab people’s attention.
