Nismo Watch

A watch that can connect a car and driver may seem like something out of a science fiction movie, but Nissan is actually working on this type of technology right now. Smartwatches have been around for a while, but had not started to gain popularity until a few short years ago. Nissan recently announced their venture into this growing trend with the Nismo watch concept.

Although there is no information at this time about availability and pricing, the Nismo watch concept made its debut at the Frankfurt auto show. The watch was designed to be used in conjunction with Nissan Nismo models such as the GT-R, Juke, and 370Z. The prototype was shown in signature Nismo black and red, but the automaker said that it will also be produced in black and white.

How the Nismo Watch Works

A low-energy Bluetooth connection is able to collect telemetry data from a vehicle such as the car’s speed, efficiency, and fuel consumption. In addition to compiling data from the wearer’s car, it also monitors the driver’s health. For example, the watch can detect heart rate and even sends the wearer a message if their heart rate is excessive.

From the photos released before the Frankfurt auto show, the Nismo watch appears to be one solid piece that connects around the wrist. It is speculated that this design was implemented to prevent damage. The battery used in the Nismo watch should last for up to seven days before needing to be charged through a Micro-USB port. Nissan has also been considering a variety of other new features to be added to their Nismo watch technology in the future. Some of those potential new features include electrocardiogram, electroencephalogram, and skin temperature monitoring abilities.
