Global Automaker, Nissan, has joined the new trend of technology by launching its smartwatch. The device, called Nissan Nismo Concept Watch, was created to keep tabs on both the car and driver’s status  in order to improve the performance of Nissan motorsports athletes.” The smartwatch launched by Nissan’s Nismo Lab, is a mobile laboratory featuring training and analysis tools that utilize biometrics and telematics technology for monitoring race cars and their drivers. Nismo says it hopes the new device will be embraced by athletes from other sports as well as by owners of Nissan automobiles. According to the Lab, “The Nismo Concept Watch features biometric technology such as ECG or Electrocardiogram that will measure the rhythm of the heart to monitor for early signs of fatigue. Drivers will also be able to get access to vehicle telematics and data such as speed and fuel consumption. Additionally, being connected to the car via a smartphone, the watch will also be able to keep track of the athlete’s performance on social networking sites. The Watch will come in black, white, and Nismo’s signature black and red colors. The packaging will similarly be inspired by Nismo’s racing identity, being made of tyres and rubber. The watch’s lithium battery will give it a life of over seven days and can be charged via micro-USB. Nissan has not given any pricing or availability details but will probably reveal more information in the upcoming motor show.
