want to know the future of wrist watch? if the EmoPulse SMILE Smartphone Bracelet is any indication at all, that would be the direction the technology might be heading. if we were to call the SMILE a smartwatch, it would be an unfair statement, because conceptually, it is supposed to be a replacement for your smartphone (though it could be used in conjunction with your smartphone as a smartwatch). as such, it has both SIM card tray and built-in 4G radio that would allow you to make and receive calls. but the calling functionality is just scratching the surface of this futuristic phone-watch hybrid. according to its developer, it has a OMAP 5 processor and has two seamlessly joint curved displays wrapped along its bracelet-like design.

other key features include a battery allowing for up to 7 days of usage, up to 256GB of flash memory, 2GB of RAM, a 9MP shooter, built-in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, Thunderbolt and USB ports, FM radio, GPS with GLONASS, NFC, support for wireless charging, and a host of usual and not-so-common sensors including 3-axis gyroscope, accelerometer, e-compass, light sensor, body temperature infrared sensor, pulse meter, as well as emo-sensor. wow. that sounds like a lot to pack into something this small. in fact, way too many that makes us take the skeptical stand. we also noted that curved display is just only getting into the market, which further adds to our skepticism. so for now, we will take it as a concept product and nothing more. however, if you are keen, you might want to check out their product intro video below, or head on down to their website to learn more.
