Smartwatches are definitely becoming a thing. We’ve seen tons of smartwatches announced and released this year from Android Wear-powered offering to the Pebble Steel and the Apple Watch. Each of smartwatch platforms offers something others don’t so there’s plenty to choose from. There are other less known offerings out there as well, such as Martian Notifier smartwatch. This device was launched back in June and it sure does offer a different experience than most smartwatch platforms out there. Martian Notifier is a watch first and everything else second. This device looks like a regular watch except it has a small 96 x 16 Pixel Graphic OLED screen in the lower portion of the device which doesn’t exactly give you much to work with but it shows your notifications. LED notification light is also included on the left. The device comes with stainless steel build and a silicone band and its battery lasts for about 5 days or so. You can control your camera shutter with it and it has a bunch of other features included. This watch is not water resistant, but it is splashproof.
Martian Notifier is now available for pre-order in India. The device is available exclusively on Flipkart for Rs 9,999 and it will ship in early October. This device can deliver caller ID, texts, Facebook, Twitter, weather and e-mail notifications on your wrist. It is compatible with 5th generation iPod Touch, iPad Air, iPad Mini, 3rd Generation iPad, iPhone 5s, 5C, 5 and 4S. As far as Android goes, this smartwatch will work with Android smartphones sporting Android version 2.3.3+, same goes for Android tablets.
“Bringing the Martian Notifier to a worldwide market, especially a major growth market for consumer electronics such as India, provides a unique opportunity to set standards in the Indian wearable tech market with our world class quality and great value.Consumers in India are looking for wearable technology that melds well into their daily lives with a personalized digital experience, and we feel a smartwatch design with style like ours is just the thing they are looking for and Flipkart is the ideal partner to help make this available to them.” said Jeffrey Hsieh, CEO of Martian Watches.
If you intend to buy this device keep in mind that this is not your regular smartwatch, it has its benefits and shortcoming. This device doesn’t support voice commands nor does it have a touchscreen capability and some would even say it is not a full-fledged smartwatch. It’s up to you really, but if you don’t like today’s smartwatches and are looking for something different, this might be just the thing for you.
