Topic Description
Our presentation will focus on smartwatches, one of the breakthrough technologies in 2013. It is expected to bring dramatic changes to information transfer. We are going to use Pebble as an example to illustrate the functions of a smartwatch.

Pebble is the leading smartwatch in the market and it is ‘wearable computer’ coming to life. Using Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to an Android or iPhone, it allows people to have a quick glance of emails, weather forecast, etc. on its black-and-white LCD screen (1) with their phones in their pockets.

Apart from that, we will also analyze the potential of smart watch replacing smart phones due to its multi-function and easy-to-carry characteristics.
