The current situation of the development of

although there are already many smart watches on the market, but the proportion of users is quite small, this will involve the smart watch defects.

1. The compatibility issues with cell phone

because smart watches age is relatively small, research and development technology and expand the range is not big enough to current smart watches and smartphone compatibility is very narrow. In terms of the current smart watches, each manufacturer’s products can enable it to carry their own most of the mobile phone, it let alone carry other brands of mobile phone, for example, as a pure samsung Galaxy smart watch Gear currently only and Galaxy Note3 and Galaxy Note10.1 connection. Looking at such a small compatibility, many potential users are daunting.

for function alike of intelligence for the bracelet, super long life, smartphone surprising life function.

the rapid development of the smart phone depends largely on the formation of favorable ecological system. Smartphone APP market madness competition to the user in the smart terminal won a good user experience. And looking smart phones, an APP is extremely poor, less users cannot enjoy the fun brought by the Internet ecosystem weak nature leads to confidence. Want to smart watch market, and the development of the application is indispensable.

4. Price

in fact, as consumers in the concerned about its function at the same time, the key factor to decide whether it will buy is the price. Current smart watches the price and a smart phone terminal price is similar. In front of the same price, I believe most people will choose the smartphone of high performance-price ratio.

although smart watch can have a combination of luxury and fashion rocks of science and technology, but is still faced with a series of problems. Smart watches to benign development, user psychology and virtuous circle of ecological construction is necessary. The first generation of smart phones while facing a lot of problems but the momentum is good, prospects, let’s look at the appearance of the second generation product.
