The common wrist watch is about to get an extreme makeover. It will feature GPS connectivity, a song selection facility, fitness tracker and much more. CEA’s WristRevolution TechZone will see to it that the dreams of the tech crowd get fulfilled. The range of products and services include: watch facades that may be uploaded, Internet links and application-oriented programs. WristRevolution TechZone will exhibit brands of Burg Limited, COOKOO, Dennco Brands, Kronoz LLC, MetaWatch, Neptune and Qualcomm Toq currently.
TechZone will be displaying the latest electronic watch technology. A showroom floor will be reserved for the gizmos and gadgets in Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC) in South Hall 3. Fashion and features will get intermixed at the event due next year. The smart watch which can easily fit into anyone’s pocket is the star attraction of the happening event.
Karen Chupka, senior vice president, events and conferences, CEA, said, “Smartwatches are creating new possibilities in the wearable technology market and increasing the ways consumers can connect with these pocket-sized devices. This exciting trend propelled us to create the WristRevolution TechZone. The WristRevolution TechZone will unveil this next generation of tech wearables.”
The next generation is already here. And with that come the devices and data products for the upcoming lot. An Internet generation that grew up during the millennium is currently having the time of its life. They are taking pictures from their smart phones and logging onto Facebook and Twitter.
This fresh batch of young hopefuls has transcended the clunky PCs and even the portable laptops. They are into tablets, smartphones and other collectible items such as Google Glass and the iWatch. Especially wearable technology, that can register such vital signs as heart rate and calories burnt, is the “in” thing among this group. They prefer the new and handy smart watches to the unwieldy products of the past.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
