In addition, Martian Notifier offers several convenience-oriented features.

You can also decline an incoming call, set silent vibrating alarms that only you will sense, get a once-an-hour tickler to remind you to take a break, turn on an LED light to see in a dark room, control your phone’s camera shutter, and more.
If you're looking for a smart watch that provides all the functionality that you could possibly need, while keeping up with your ever-changing fashion sense, then this smart watch may just be the perfect match for you!

Watch out Samsung Gear, there's a stylish new tech time piece coming to the market. Motorola's new Moto360 smart watch is the newest addition to Android's step into wearables. Driven by voice and easily glance able, this time piece takes a few notes from classic watches of old. Motorola’s decision to go round is obviously smart, but it’s also bold. With most small, wearable components — including the screen — designed to fit in square bodies, the company was forced to, as its designers and engineers explain in the Moto 360's reveal video, build a brand new set of components.
While we still don’t know a lot about the Moto 360, Motorola has just announced a live Hangout with Jim Wicks the lead designer on the Moto 360 project. That Hangout will take place later today, March 19th at 2:00PM EST. You can sign up for the event by heading here. Whatever Google and Motorola can do to make the Moto 360 and other Android-based smart watches as watch-like as possible works for me. Style and technology should work hand in hand and one shouldn't outshine the other. This Moto 360 (in my opinion) looks like we've found the first step towards fashionable balance. But don't take my word for it, check out the Moto 360 smart watch for yourself below.

The Galaxy Gear Smartwatch will allow you to keep track of your diet by taking pics of your food and labeling. But does it mean that it will be able to detect nutrional value? How will it work with Samsung's S Health App on the Galaxy S 4?
We’ve been speaking with sources to separate fact from fiction. And this weekend, a source showed us one of the prototypes sent to developers and a few select partners. Note that Samsung is highly security conscious in protecting its designs, and occasionally sends off prototypes that don’t mirror the final design. But it won’t be far off. - Venture Beat
