New Technology Lets You Watch TV from Your Watch
I guess it was only a matter of time before someone came up with a good watch that pays videos We have been seeing them for years in cartoons and sci-fi movies but now they are hereI guess it was only a matter of time before someone came up with a good watch that pays videos. We have been seeing them for years in cartoons and sci-fi movies but now they are here! With the huge success of Ipod''s and various other pda''s in recent years comes watches that allow users to store and watch videos. The MP3 and MP4 watches have been on store shelves for a few years now but their popularity isn''t very strong.
The video watches have the capability of playing MP3 AND MP4''s in addition to video formats. I think the video watches will be more popular than music watches ever were. They are already making a big impact on the Chinese market particularly amongst the youth. Just as with the case of camera phones, the Chinese are always the first to get new technologies. It''s only a mater of time before video watches spread to the rest of the world.
Video watches work the same way as other portable multimedia devices work. The watch is connected to your computer using a USB port contained on the watch and files are transferred onto it. In order for everything to work properly, you will need the watch itself, the accompanying software, and earphones. Models of video watches range from one gigabyte to eight gigabytes of memory depending on the brand.
Video formats also vary but the common formats should be supported in any case. Formats such as AVI, MP4, WMV, ASF, MPG, MPEG, DAT, RM and MOV are widely utilized for multimedia. Optional features may include AM/FAM radio, voice recording, picture storage and display, Bluetooth headset and text functions. It may be redundant to mention but every model I have reviewed thus far of video watches are in color only.
Built in battery chargers, various operating system compliancy, hours of playback time, waterproof and similar features appear to be common for all video watch models. To my surprise video watches are very inexpensive. I was able to find several all priced for under one hundred dollars. This may be a good alternative to Apple''s I-Pod for the people who want to get a portable media device.
Watches that play video will display the video on the watches face itself. The audio is sent through to the connecting earphones so you can hear what is being played. Some models may include built in speakers that will allow you to hear without the earphones on. Since the video is watch size, you can expect screen display to be smaller than two inches. From what I''ve seen listed online, the average screen size is only 1.6 inches. Nevertheless, I''m sure someone sitting on a long plane trip won''t mind that. As long as the can watch something that will keep them busy and take their mind''s off of the flight. From my perspective a video watch is perfect for travel.
In conclusion, I don''t think everyone will run out and get a watch that plays video but I do think there is room for it on the market. As this technology begins to develop and spread, you will begin to see the screens become larger and new features added that go beyond both the watch and video realm. In the meantime video watches come fully equipped with everything you could ask for in a video player.
