It’s not a wearable device; it’s a wearable fashion that also grants you superior working efficiency
When smart phones came into our lives, it replaced our needs for wrist watches. It was inevitable since one of the main functions of a watch was to tell time, and there are hundreds and hundreds of time telling apps on a phone. Although there are lots of things that a smart phone can do, it could never replace the nostalgic classiness, fashion sensation a watch could provide.
Technology didn’t allow us to have a high tech smart watch in the past, but now that we’re living in the future, all of these fantasies have become reality. That’s exactly why all of the major electronics brand-names are investing in wrist watch alike devices; Jawbone up, Fitbit Force, and Sony Smartband are health related wrist band devices that have already introduced themselves to this new market.
PEGA D&E spotted this trend, but had a different interpretation. In 2013, PEGA D&E designed a smart watch tailored for smart workers. The watch has an elegant appearance, while at the same time, provides far superior convenience and communication abilities better than any other office’s communications equipment on the market. The watch was named after a demigod in the Greek mythology; it was given the name “The Hercules”.
