  1. seandainya internet dan responnya bisa secepat itu. dan seandainya deteksi bahasa indonesia bisa sebagus itu. Tetapi kita tahu, yg ada di video ini hanyalah kosmetik untuk promosi. meaning: performa yg akan didapatkan tergantung banyak hal, seperti: kecepatan koneksi internet.

  2. Well, here's the thing about smartwatches.
    First off, smartwatches are based on smartphones. Anybody who's in the market for a smartwatch already has a smartphone. There is no functionality in a smartwatch that isn't already present in a smartphone AND done better. So the only purpose it really serves is as a second screen for people who are so lazy that they'd rather not be bothered to pull their phone out of their pocket and actually USE it.
    Second, as smartphones have gotten "smarter", the screen sizes have gotten bigger, which also allows more room inside the phone for bigger batteries and better components. With this in mind, what happens when smartwatchs get "smarter"? Are we really going to be strapping "Note watches" to our wrists some day?
    Third, why do we really need them? Nobody needs a watch to tell the time anymore, these watchs are not a replacement for a smartphone, and they aren't even their own standalone devices (seeing as how they still REQUIRE a smartphone to stay connected). I mean, Google Glass will definitely have its uses as it becomes more refined going forward. You could make some Iron Man HUD visor shit out of that. Throw in a couple radios and an earpiece and you have a fully voice activated phone to potentially replace your ACTUAL phone some day.
    But I'm not sure what purpose a watch will serve in the future of advanced technology. All it is is a dumbed down, smaller packaged smartphone. You can't "do" anything with it unless you make it too big to even be practical AS a watch. Unless we discover interactive hologram projection.

  3. To be honest i don't see why we need smart watches. 

    1. Expensive
    2. Not much functionality than you know your phone which is in in your pocket.
    3. THERE'S NO WAY! and i mean no way that you can do the things they say like "talk to your watch in the subway" and it work. I'm sitting in my room and sometimes with just the tv going my phone has a hard time hearing what i'm saying

    This is probably why Apple hasn't even done it and some companies are barely starting to get into it. I think they are waiting to see whats the point of having them and what they could do to justify the 300$+ price tag.
