SchmartWatch an extremely modest proposal
There are at least 10 ( binary ) schools of thought about *SchmartWatches* ....
1) Make them a minature super-powerful tablet computer
2) Make them a remote slave to smarter devices with modest capabilities ....
I am in camp #2. No watch-sized device is like to be all everyone would want. So I recommend it do what a wrist mounted device does best and leave the rest to a super-smart brother.
What it should do & should have .....
Easy battery recharging battery should magnetically unsnap / snap also auto position itself
Ultra reliable wireless link to Schmarter Brother device 900 or 400 MHz link boot over wireless
Sensors .... XYZ accelerometer , temperature , compass , bio-medical add-ons
NFC communications NFC bootloader capability boot loader makes functions very plastic
Infrared xcvr bootloader over infrared
Hi resolution Color display
Lo resolution touch screen ( buttons as well ? )
Speaker ( 20Hz -50KHz ) ultrasonic maybe two speakers hi freq and lo freq
Microphone 20Hz - 50KHz
Vibrator alert actually push the skin
Closeup-Macro single shot camera
snap on add-on I/O magnetic 2 wire power and data
What it should not do ........
No GPS ( see Schmarter Brother )
No massive amount of memory or compute power ( see Schmarter Brother )
No voice recognition ( Schmarter Brother should does this )
