Episode Tease

Smartwatches have become popular. There are several brands and styles that you can purchase, based on your personal style and preferences. One61 Studio makes superhero smartwatches that geeks will find appealing. Todd spoke with Anand from Know Things at CES 2018. Know Things builds development tools that accelerate IoT and connected devices development. They partnered with One61 Studio to help them solve problems that developers face while creating a smart product.

One61 Studio has created a superhero smartwatch line. They started with the Batman smartwatch, which is based on the Batman played by Adam West in the '60s. The Batman smartwatch can be used to take calls, get text messages and everything else you expect from a smartwatch. Know Things managed the Bluetooth layer to extend battery life, so you get 18 to 24 hours of battery even while actually using it. In addition, they added some gamification. They call the Step Counter "Crime Fighting". Take a certain number of steps, and the first villain Batman catches is The Joker.

The Batman smartwatch is available now for $125, and a smartwatch based on The Flash is also available now at $125. The Wonder Woman smartwatch will become available in April for $150, which will be a round smartwatch that includes heartbeat detection (which is not a feature of the square smartwatches.)
