Nissan Nismo Smartwatch
The auto industry isn't just looking at the future of cars anymore, it's merging wearable tech gadgets with the driving experience. Nissan's Nismo Watch is intended to work alongside Nissan Nismo cars, the motorsports and performance division of the auto manufacturer.
The watch uses a smartphone app to connect the driver to the car, making use of a heartbeat monitor on the watch that can use that biometric data to suggest, hey, maybe slow it down there, speed demon. The watch can also tell the driver what's happening with the vehicle itself, sending performance data while driving. Though the watch is part of Nissan's Nismo Lab creating technology as used by athletes, it shows uses of wearable tech far beyond the pedometer.
