At Baselworld 2015, Vector unveiled their first smartwatch. They are taking a different approach to others on the market.
Introduced as a stylish and desirable piece of jewellery rather than a gadget, the Vector smartwatch looks to fill the gap in the market left by fashion-focused smartwatches lacking technological innovation, and technology orientated wearables.
With an aim to provide a more personalised and intuitive experience on a smartwatch device, the Vector brand is supported by a strong team of developers as well as the ex CEO of Timex Joe Santana, ex Nike Designer Steve Jarvis and Vector CTO Andrei Pitis.
The Vector Smartwatch sets itself apart from the other smartwatches in three ways. The first is that it isn’t fixed to just one operating system. The Vector Smartwatch is compatible with iOS, Android & Windows platforms.
The second aspect is the battery life. The battery does not need to be charged for 30 days.
The final aspect that makes it stand out is a sensor activated notification system which allows users to acknowledge messages with the flick of a wrist, and built-in contextual awareness that allows the device to understand patterns in user behaviour.
Vector are set to launch a channel on If This Then That (IFTTT), the web-based service that allows users to make their ownpowerful connections between apps & deviceswith simple conditional statements. The IFTTT service already provides connections to over 170 channels (apps) & over 19 million‘recipes’. This integration marks the start of plans to form a developer-ecosystem for the Vector software.
Launch dates, pricing & full product specifications will be released closer to the product launch date, but two designs will be available to pre-order at vectorwatch.com; the Luna, a round model, and the Meridian, a rectangular design. Both will 50 meter/5ATM water resistant.
