S.W.A.P Rebel Smart Watch
It’s strange to think that there’s a generation of humans walking about that wouldn’t know what you meant by the gesture: tapping your wrist in a questioning manner. Watches, thanks to mobile phones, have mostly dissapeared though perhaps they’re going to be making a come back in other forms. The latest iPod nano comes in wrist watch form and so to does this S.W.A.P (the website featuring the worst URL in history, http://www.s-w-a-p.co.uk).
It’s a smart watch with a phone, a cut back smartphone in a watch. A watch phone that’s smart, you get the idea. It comes with a very small touch screen, stylus, USB 2.0, a sneaky camera, voice and text communication, 3G internet and a big silicon casing. Is it the return of the watch? Or simply a nostalgic throwback? Let’s check it out.
