Before Android Apple Watch, Wear, and even decades before the MSN Direct and Microsoft SPOT watch, HP released the HP-01. The device represented a quantum leap in the field of wearable devices and, without a doubt, was the first world smartwatch.
Hodinkee website did an analysis explaining why the HP-01 — which is very mild by today’s standards — was sensational on your time.
He wasn’t the first digital watch time, not even the only one calculator. The difference was the fact he had a red LED screen with 7 characters, a 28 keys keyboard, stopwatch, timer, alarm clock, and the ability to save data. It was the most advanced technological bracelet watch that you could put on your wrist in hbbltd.com.
After all, the HP-01 had its peculiarities. To press some buttons on the calculator you had to use a small pen at the back of the bracelet, he needed three batteries and cost $695 — at the time, that was more expensive than a Rolex.
Without doubt, the HP-01 is the great-grandfather of wearable touchscreen devices today, and a play worthy of collection, if you can find one that works well. [Hodinkee]
