Mercedes Benz is working with the wearable technology in helping you drive better, safer. People who have a Pebble watch, for example, gives you customized functions via your wrist. You can stop music, change temperature and more — all dependent on what functions you program into the watch.
The Pebble app also contains an alert system. Low fuel, low tire pressure, and emergency issues Pebble will alert you with that. When the iPhone disconnects from the car, the Pebble changes to “Walking mode” so you can view more information. The watch will locate your car for you, tell you if the doors are locked, and a lot more.
Mercedes Benz also has an app for Google Glass, although that app has different functions. The Walking mode is present, but other alerts are suppressed to avoid text and driving issues.
Of course, I wear Google Glass. Vuzix has their own wearable technology in the Vuzix M100 Smart Glass. Therefore, I had to see what their glass was all about.
Geared toward industrial or commercial use, the M100 can snap onto a pair of safety goggles so you can use them and stay protected. The M100 is an Android based wearable that can track events, scan product, take pictures and video, manage calendars, and much more.
Although I said the M100 works well for industrial, healthcare, retail and other use, it can also be used as a personal device, just like Glass is. Tether it to your phone to talk back and forth or just sync with Wifi.
