Award-Winning, Retro-chic Martian Notifier Line of Smartwatches Available Just in Time for Dads and Grads
Personalize Alerts from Thousands of "Best-in-Class" Apps for Sports, Fitness, Games, News and More
Irvine, CA – June 2, 2014 – Martian Watches™, a California-based, award-winning developer of fashionable wireless technologies, today announces its new Martian Notifier™ line of stylish analog smartwatches is now available at BestBuy.com and will be in Best Buy stores nationwide on June 16.
In addition to email, calendar, SMS and 15 pre-populated social apps, Martian Notifier picks up push notifications from thousands of popular sports, fitness, games, news and more apps such as StubHub, ESPN, Runmeter, Foursquare, Words with Friends and others.
The Martian Notifier was designed for the fashion- and cost-conscious consumer who wants a notification-enabled watch that also brings an industry-first feature – "Smart Notifications", a combination of alert filters, customized vibration capabilities, notification recall and history review, so you can personalize the real-time alerts that are offered by thousands of lifestyle apps available in the App Store and Google Play Store. No SDK required!
The free Martian Notifier App allows three unique levels of "smart notification" support: it first lets you filter the notification types you want sent to the watch, so you receive only those that are most important to you. Secondly, it allows customized vibration patterns for each type of alert, letting you know if you've just received, for example, an email, text message or news alert without even looking at your watch, let alone your phone. Finally, you can recall the most recent message with just a tap of the watch face, or scroll through multiple past notifications for a quick review.
The Martian Notifier line features an integrated OLED readout that delivers real-time alerts and notifications from the convenience of your wrist including Caller ID, Calendar, Weather, texts, email (POP or IMAP), Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, favorite games, bank alerts, fitness stats, news headlines, and all other alerts your smartphone allows.
"Best Buy is a leader at providing consumers with the best available technologies to fit almost every need, and we are thrilled to be available at one of our nation's consumer electronics powerhouses," said Stan Kinsey, President of Martian Watches. "The Martian Notifier makes the perfect gift for the style-conscious, on-the-go, tech-enthusiast dads and grads this summer."
Compatibility, Price & Availability
With the Martian Notifier line, iPhone users of iOS 7 or higher now have the ability to receive every notification that is shown in the iPhone's Notification Center. Android users can receive notifications from any app that is installed on their phone and provides a push notification.
In addition, the Martian App and Watch menus will support English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Texts and emails will appear on the watch in almost any language in which they are sent (Western languages and most Asian languages).
