Smart watch is one of the most popular examples of what we can call as an “Internet of Things” device. Christensson defined it as a digital watch that provides many other features besides timekeeping. Examples include monitoring your heart rate, tracking your activity, and providing reminders throughout the day. Like a smartphone, a smartwatch has a touchscreen display, which allows you to perform actions by tapping or swiping on the screen. Today, modern smartwatches include several apps, similar to apps for smartphones and tablets. These apps provide additional functionality, such as displaying weather information, listing stock prices, and displaying maps and directions. Most smartwatches can also be used to make phone calls and send and receive text messages. This can be supported by Laudon’s statement in the book which explained that the impact of smart, Internet-connected products is just now being understood. Smart products offer new functionality, greater reliability, and more intense use of products while providing detailed information that can be used to improve both the products and the customer experience. They expand opportunities for product and service differentiation.

 

Basically, it has benefited the society by adding another step of convenience because you just do not need to take out your smartphone every time. Also going handsfree is the best part associated with usage of smartwatches.

 

However, I must consider as well that it poses harmful risk to us. I can clearly see issues with data being transferred, it is a concern of how data is stored on the smartwatches and how safe our private information is. HP actually conducted a test on the ten most popular smartwatches, which they exposed some vulnerabilities with the data being stored on the smartwatches (Khandelwal, 2015). Out of the ten, not a single smartwatch was found to be 100 percent safe, HP exposed three out of ten phones allowed unlimited login attempts, also completely didn’t offer two-factor authentication or the ability to lock the account after 3 to 5 failed password attempts. In conclusion, the data stored on our smartwatches might be at risk.
