When Wrist Technology Got An Upgrade!

Smartwatches are digital watches that do a lot more than your old analog time tracking device. These aren’t calculator watches that we had in elementary school. These are full-blown digital tools.

Here are our picks for top 5:

Apple Watch

Apple Watch offers as a timepiece and can be customized with watch faces varying from classic analogs such as the Modular face, Chronograph face, animated jellyfish and butterflies on the Motion face. It tells time with specialized functions on the watch face such as the sunrise/sunset, daily activity level or upcoming calendar events.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
