Is the age of Star Trek upon us? Perhaps we are on our way, but we still haven’t come close to beaming entire physical bodies down to earth from a spaceship. Just in case you were wondering what Marvin the Martian is doing on the right, he is there to illustrate the Martian Watch, a timepiece that will debut at CES which is happening in just a fortnight’s time, where it is touted to be the “world’s first” (we are always very wary about such claims) Bluetooth voice command watch which enables you to talk, listen and control your smartphone – all from the comfort of your wrist.
The Martian Watch is said to be very different from its competitors (as well as those waiting in the wings), as it relies on voice command control to deliver a truly unique hands-free experience. This means you can communicate without having to touch your smartphone, accessing the phone’s voice commands, ranging from placing and receiving calls to sending voice-to-text messages, listening and responding to text messages, setting calendar notifications and reminders, controlling music, and searching the web.
Talk about a true blue hands-free Bluetooth solution! It might resemble a classic analog timepiece at first glance, but when paired wirelessly to your smartphone, it works wonders – on paper, at least. The Martian Watch is said to play nice with iOS and the Android platforms, where you can choose from a trio of design styles.
