With generalist smartwatches like the Apple Watch and various Android Wear, Fitbit and other devices on the market, the ante has been raised when it comes to sport watches. My first running watches, in the 1990s were basically glorified stopwatches with connectivity to a chest-strap heart rate monitor. But today's models are far more sophisticated. Enter the Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR - a very competent device that's suited to triathletes.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


Even with Apple's relatively successful entry in the market, smartwatches are still perceived as a niche segment. But if you're a developer, the evidence is mounting that there might eventually be a business case for building apps to run on smartwatches alongside your existing mobile apps.
