First Look: Vector SmartwatchJan 7, 2016
My Vector Smartwatch arrived yesterday! I was happier to see this show up at my door than I should’ve been because I had completely forgot that it was coming. What interested me in the Vector Smartwatch was that the company touted Windows Phone compatibility from the start. Yes, it supports the major platforms, too (Android, iOS), but knowing that Vector has invested time to support Windows Phone made it more interesting.
At first glance – this is a watch very similar to the Apple Watch. It’s a stylish watch first with some minor fitness tracking thrown in. As most of you know I’m a fitness freak, so it’ll be interesting putting this through its paces.
I’ve cobbled together a first-look gallery to get you initiated with the Vector Smartwatch. My full review will come after a couple weeks of testing. Stay tuned for that.
