FiDELYS Smartwatch: The Eyes Have It
July 3rd, 2014
There’s a good reason for biometric security, since it ensures that most of your information on your devices or computer doesn’t get stolen or swiped too easily. Using your eyes as your password is the stuff of science fiction and spy movies, which is why this watch is so cool.
Iritech’s FiDELYS smartwatch gets paired with your phone, and allows you to interact with incoming calls, text messages, and other functions. It also has a built-in camera that will have an iris recognition capability, meaning that you could unlock your device with your eyes, freeing your from entering a passcode. The device will also tie to your computer or smartphone, providing iris-based authentication for websites and applications.
The watch offers Bluetooth Low Energy and NFC wireless support, as well as a heart rate sensor, pedometer and wireless charging. Instead of using a touchscreen, you’ll interact with the watch clicking on the outside of its bezel.
The FiDELYS smartwatch will be launched through an Indiegogo crowdfunding project soon, with a pre-launch price of about $250(USD) – a $50 discount off its planned retail price.
