Swiss startup develops wireless, wearable smart bracelet with Bluetooth, cameras, 3D sensing
Swiss startup Swisscom, an online store for watches, bracelets, and other products, says it has built a Bluetooth-equipped wristband that connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth.
The company says the Pebble smartwatch will let users communicate with each other and make phone calls via Bluetooth over the wireless connection.
The Pebble is the latest wearable tech to find its way into the hands of consumers.
The Apple Watch and Samsung Gear S2 are among the most popular smartwatches on the market.
But there are many ways to connect them to the Internet.
The watch uses a wireless charging technology called “WiFi,” which uses Bluetooth signals to transmit information and allows devices to communicate without having to connect to a cellular network.
WiFi is also the basis for the Pebble’s new bracelet, which includes an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, accelerometer and a camera.
The bracelet will allow users to take calls and use voice commands on the watch, according to the company.
The new Pebble is also available in two colors, which are black and white.
