COGITO ORIGINAL – the “connected watch”

cogitowatch

It seems the consensus that 2014 is the year of wearable tech. And while my vote is still out on the subject, this smartwatch did catch my eye. I noticed, not because of its high-tech look or bleeding-edge specs, but because of its classic understated design.  The COGITO ORIGINAL from ConnecteDevice Limited appears to be a relatively simple, nice looking analog timepiece. But in this case, looks can be deceiving; its black face is actually a digital display. It does not tell you the weather forecast or the Seahawks score, but it does notify you of incoming calls, texts, emails, and calendar appointments/alarms.  It’s $179.95.

  2. Stylish! I wish they offered a lot more functional detail, though. But I suppose their target demo is less interested in that sort of “boring geek stuff”.

    The product page claims “On the watch face, users can see who is calling or messaging” without even showing any examples of what that looks like. It’s only in the insipid video that we get to see one, brief shot of a caller notification. That video also claims the watch has media-player controls, and implies that it controls the device’s camera — but we never get even a hint of what either interface looks like or how they operate.

    I also wish they supported devices running earlier than Android 4.3. You know, the other 90.8% of the user base (acccording to the current Android Dashboard).
