Nissan Nismo Smartwatch Connects Drivers to Their Cars



Smartwatches are the hottest topic in the tech industry as Samsung unveils it Galaxy Gear as well as Qualcomm joins the war with its Toq high tech watch. In a very unexpected fashion, Nissan Motors shows off its version of smartwatch called Nissan Nismo during 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show with unique feature set.

In addition to SNS update and syncing with your smartphone, it also measures the wearer's heart rate, temperature and other biometrics along with tracking the car's performance, including average, speeds and fuel consumption.   It looks like it borrowed some of the functionality from the hot trendy wearable fitness tracking device such as Fitbit Flex band.

According to the BBC, experts believe the watch could be an important step towards greater connectivity in cars as connectivity is the new battleground for car manufacturers.

The Nismo watch can be connected to the car's on-board computer system and provide data on vehicle efficiency, performance and users can also receive tailored messages from Nissan through the gadget.

Marketing communications general manager at Nissan, Europe, Gareth Dunsmore said that wearable technology is fast becoming the next big thing and Nissan wants to take advantage of this innovative technology.

The pricing and availability date has not been released yet, but the color choices have; black, white and black/red combo.  It will connect to Nissan vehicles usig a Bluetooth, and can be charged through micro-USB.  The battery is expected to last over seven days under normal usage scenario, but that is still out in the air until we see the production version to be tested.
