2014 prediction time: Smartwatches will be on everyone’s wrist. Not mine, since my mother already nags me about having my phone out all the time, but you get my point. We’ve heard about the Samsung smartwatches and steadily, more and more companies have been tossing their products into the wearable tech ring. Now, Archos wants in on the smartwatch game and we can expect a preview at CES next week.
The company teased the new smartwatch on Archos’ website. As you can see below, the smartwatch is apparently coming soon. The watch looks pretty good in my opinion, with a rubber wristband much like the Pebble. We have no information about colors, but as you can see from the picture it definitely will come in black.
As for CES, Archos has said in a press release on their UK website that the company will be launching other connected devices at CES 2014 but that the first will, “Be unveiling a selection of smartwatches starting at under £50.” For those of you stateside, that’s about $82 which puts Archos’ smartwatch at less than half the price of the Pebble.
We’ll keep you updated next week during CES.
