Vector Releases a Smartwatch With 30-Day Battery Life
All the more reason to scoff at smartwatches that can barely reach one day of use.
British brand Vector is the latest to enter the already frenetic smartwatch market, however, its offerings differentiate themselves by addressing possibly the largest annoyance for smartwatch users — that is, battery life. Boasting 30 days of use on a single charge while also featuring “always on” screen technology, Vector achieves this remarkable functionality with a simpler operating system than other smartwatches, in addition to a black-and-white memory-LCD display that runs on little power whilst achieving fast-changing, high-resolution images. Lacking a touchscreen, users instead interact with the timepiece via three side buttons and a phone app available on Android, iOS or Windows Phone. Retailing for between $249 and $399 USD from September 1, the Vector smartwatch will be available online here.
