One of the big items on my hit list here at CES 2014 was the HOT Smartwatch. The watch isn't actually available until March but it's already receiving quite a buzz. The HOT works in much the same manner as other devices, connecting to your Android or iOS device via Bluetooth. You can receive notifications for SMS, email, Facebook and Twitter and also has weather, stocks, calendar and a phone finder. Perhaps the coolest feature of the HOT however it the ability to answer calls right on the device in the most secret agent way possible.
When a phone call comes in, you lift your hand to your head, cup your ear and chat away. Almost as if a Secret Service agent talking into your cuff, the HOT had great call quality and though you feel a bit odd, was very captivating. Done with the call? Wave bye and the HOT ends the call. Combine that with some sweet touchscreen gestures and you've got a pretty cool watch.
The HOT will be available in just a few weeks in Basic, Edge, Classic and Curve models, priced from $179 to $249.
