Nissan Nismo smartwatch connects driver to the car
Smartwatch era is here and it is there to stay as big brands are also foraying into catching up with the trend. The popularity or should I say fever of smartwatches has also gripped car manufacturer like Nissan and definitely shows how smartwatches are going to revolutionize the coming times. Called as Nismo smartwatch, this wearable tech inspired bu=y Nismo Ring is first of its kind that can be connected to the car’s interface to monitor vital statistics like efficiency, fuel consumption etc. On the other hand it also provides information on driver’s performance and body readings like heart rate using ECG technologies for measuring intervals of R-R rhythm which by the way also prevents the chances of accidents due to fatigue. The smartwatch was launched at Frankfurt Motor Show and is Nissan’s take on wearable technology that connects the driver to the car he/she is driving. The smartwatch will be secured on the user’s wrist via a snap-fit mechanism and will be a two button operated gadget.
Nismo smartwatch is capable of accessing vehicle telematics for a smoother and safer drive and has been designed to work with Nissan Nismo vehicles using smartphone connected via Bluetooth Low Energy connection. Having a lithium ion battery that can last up to 7 days in normal usage conditions, it can be recharged via micro-USB. it will come in three color options black, white and the flagship black and red. There is no word yet on the price or availability of Nismo smartwatch but is expected to be out soon for purchase in the competitive market loaded with smartwatches and even more to come.
