We have been informing you with the latest buzzing and happenings in the wearable tech for some time. We hope you appreciate that! So now, today we have made a sneak peek of the happening around the wearable world for the previous week.
Here are the important news and happenings which rocked the wearable world for this week. Have a look!
TADO- THE EXCLUSIVE “NEST” ALTERNATIVE:
Tado which is the German alternative for Nest succeeded to raise about $17.1 million in a single round of crowd funding.
The round for the funding was quite successful and several famous units including Siemens and Statkraft Ventures, the investment arm of one of Europe’s biggest renewable energy companies participated in it.
Tado is the simple auto-pilot of your home’s and offices’ heating system. It requires the native app to be installed and then you can adjust the temperature regardless of where you are. It is a portable and battery operated device so it can be placed anywhere you want (this is what makes it definitely superior over Nest).
A PATENT FOR THE APPLE SMART RING SHOWED UP:
Apple has been successfully dealing with the wearable and gadget world for quite some time. With new renditions of Apple Watch swarming up one after another, Apple is thriving to break all the records in the Smart Watch territory.
Now, Apple has finally decided to increase its more than figure share of sales with adding something more appealing to its list of wearables. As per the patent revealed, Apple could be working on a smart ring, and bringing connectivity to fanboy’s digits.
The patent clearly stated that;
“A need exists for a more discreet, safer, more efficient, or more ergonomic way to interact with touch pads or touch screens.”
Describing its new venture in such way on a patent is a clever effort from Apple to threaten its competitors.
APPLE WATCH WARMLY WELCOMED FACEBOOK MESSENGER:
Well, this bit of the news from the roundup of events, the passing week was not so surprising but definitely welcoming. We all, from some time now, knew that Apple will be introducing Facebook messenger to its Apple Watch and finally the step has been taken.

THE HILARIOUS TOUCY LEFT US LAUGHING!
The weirdest yet the head turning wearable ever created are; undoubtedly Tocuhy which was unveiled this week. The wearable was in display at CEATEC in Japan. Touchy is basically a head-mounted camera and it takes you pictures and snapshots whenever you hold someone’s hands.
Touchy is developed by artist Eric Siu who is situated in Hong Kong. He created Touch in 2012 as a way to cope up with social anxiety. But, we cannot be sure about this as we have not seen it working.
