This is a sponsored program with Mums the Word Blogger Network and Cogito. All opinions are my own.
Technology and new gadgets, I love them! I love discovering them, I love playing with them, and I really, really love it when they bring more to the table than just the “cool factor” and they actually end up adding some function or benefit that makes my life more convenient or me a more efficient mom, employee, or blogger. Between laptops, tablets, and smartphones, you’d think all the possible bases were covered right? Wrong! What about smart watches?
Wearable Technology is taking the connected world by storm and this holiday season. Smart watches and fitness trackers are in popular demand. I know I have both on my wish list. Enter the Cogito Classic, a stylish connected watch from ConnecteDevice. Cogito Classic brings together the power of a connected watch with the sophistication of a precision-crafted timepiece, merging classic analog movement with a lucid digital display. You’ll know what’s happening on your phone even when it’s tucked away! This will make it much easier and less obvious than busting out my cell phone every 10 minutes to see if I have an important e-mail waiting while I’m supposed to be working at the office! Am I right?
With the use of the free ConnectedWatch App, you’ll be able these essential notifications at a glance:
– Incoming and missed call alerts (See Caller ID or phone number on the digital display),
– Email alerts,
– 3rd Party messenger app alerts (Viber, WhatsApp, Skype, etc.),
– Calendar Reminders and;
– Device Low Battery Alerts.
You can also use Cogito as a remote control to :
– Skip, pause and play music, and,
– Trigger your device camera at the push of a button.
What else is super cool? You also don’t have to charge your watch battery every day! Unlike the smart phones and and other gadgets that I feel like I’m charging constantly, the Cogito comes with a button-cell battery that lasts for up to a year! It’s also got up to 10ATM water resistance so I can totally keep it on in the shower or while I’m washing dishes without worrying. (I mean it would be cooler if it could actually wash the dishes for me, but I’ll take what I can get.) The Cogito is compatible with iPhone 4S and up, iPad 3rd & 4th Generation, iPad Mini Running iOS 8 and Android 4.3 upwards on Samsung S3, S4, S4 Mini S4 Active, Note 2 & 3 & HTC One. That pretty much covers all the major players right?
If you want find out more or get one of these babies ordered in time for Christmas, make sure you check out the Cogito watches website. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter. Cogito has also graciously given me a code for a $50 store credit that you can use throughout the weekend (expires November 30, 2014) – just type in BLOG50 when you check out!
