New Bluetooth Watch Debuts, Helping Smartphone Users Keep Track of Time

Are you always on-the-go but no matter how hard you try always find yourself consistently late to crucial appointments? For some, wearing a watch could help overcome tardiness and going one step further is the just-unveiled VEABuddy, a Bluetooth watch that boasts the ability to show key data related to their gadget to users without being required to closely analyze their phone ever again. Somewhere I bet Pauly D from the Jersey Shore is saying is most popular catch phrase, “Yeah Buddy” in regard to this new innovation.

VEABuddy, according to company officials, encompasses a two-inch full color touchscreen that makes it a synch to read even when tanning in the bright sun of the Caribbean. It is 8 mm thick and comes complete with a USB connector that makes it virtually effortless to recharge. It can be seamlessly integrated with nearly any smartphone or tablet currently on the market and all you need is a Bluetooth to get it up and running.

If a user is curious who has called them, e-mailed them or a variety of other messages they have received, they can just look down at their wrist accessory to get an idea. The gadget can even navigate through song selections, notify the individual of new Facebook updates and make calls.

The company behind this next-generation product that will forever change the way in which you view your watch is VEA DIGITAL. The French company is headquartered in Marseille, France and develops its suite of watches and bracelets through its own in-depth research.

Last week on the day of love known as Valentine’s Day, Wearable Tech World issued a report on a different kind of watch coined the Pi from Sensorstream.

According to findings, it has the “first truly circular touch screen. It has no buttons or knobs, and the entire device is controlled via that touch screen. The Pi also does not require a cellular plan. It is designed to jump on and off wireless hotspots, so no contracts are needed. It has several core functions, including the ability to serve as a mobile wallet. It’s also got social networking functionality, and users can share their contact information with each other with merely a tap of watches.”
