The NBT: Smart Watches

Are watching that do more than tell time the next big thing?

Jessica: Last week, we told you about the 3 Doodler, a pen that can draw in three dimensions.

So, how about it? Do you think it is the next big thing?

Well, I would say so! Ninety-two percent of you said, “Yeah, give me 3D!

Eight percent of you said, “No thanks. I like to doodle old school.”

Now, we told you about the big 40th anniversary this week for the cell phone. And it seems everyday there is another new gadget designed to make the cell phone do even more for you. And that gets us to this week’s Next Big Thing.

Smartwatches combine a watch with a smartphone. There have been a lot of rumors lately about an iWatch from Apple. And Samsung and Google both announced their own smartwatches last month.

On this wearable tech, you can check your emails, texts and keep up-to-date on Facebook and Twitter, all on your wrist. Smartwatches can also include things like sensors to monitor your health and built-in fitness tracking. Hey, they even tell the time!
