Archos SmartWatches

Archos, popular for its Android smartphones and tablets has announced that it would unveil a range of SmartWatches at the CES 2014. These SmartWatches would lets you connect to both Android and iOS smartphones and would start under 50 GBP (Rs. 5,100), said the company. We saw the pebble Smartwatch with E-Ink display. Samsung introduced the Galaxy Gear earlier this year and Sony came up with SmartWatch 2. But the Archos SmartWatch would be cheaper than all these.

We don’t have any specifications of these Archos SmartWatches yet, but the promo image of the watch hints that it might have an E-INK display. It would obviously have Bluetooth support to connect to your smartphones. It might come with changeable wrist straps. Will it be waterproof? Does it have apps? We are not sure about these yet,so we have to wait for a week to know more about it.

Archos would also unveil Connected Home that let you control your home from any iOS or Android platform using the Archos Smart Home App or 7” home gateway tablet. We will be there at the CES in Las Vegas later this week to cover all the launches.
