Teenagers sure can be hard to shop for. My soon-to-be 15 year old son is incredibly hard to shop for. He is past the point of wanting toys or anything too "childish", but he also doesn't want nothing but DVD's, books, and underwear. He'd probably be thrilled if I got him nothing but Pringles or Cheetos for Christmas, but as the "Junk Food Nazi", that's just not going to happen.
One thing Kyle does love are fun, tech-related gifts. Several months ago, we finally accepted the fact that our son is growing up, and we got him his first cell phone. After all, he is in high school, and with his various clubs and activities, he has a rather busy schedule. He loves his iPhone, so when I learned about the Martian Notifier Smartwatch, I knew it would make the perfect gift. You see, this watch syncs with your mobile device using the free Martian Notifier App, and will display notifications for thousands of different apps, right on the watch face! Pretty cool, right?
The Martian Notifier is one nifty watch, and it just happens to be compatible with most mobile devices. Here's a list of the devices this watch will sync with:
The Martian Notifier also comes in a variety of different colors, so you're sure to find one that's just the right style. We chose the red, since my son is very colorful in general!
Here are some of the Martian Notifier's key features:
Setting up the Martian Notifier is super-simple, too. Simply download the free app to your smartphone or tablet, and then make sure your watch is charged. There is a convenient charging cable included, and I just plug it into my computer. When the watch is fully charged and ready to go, you will see a green indicator light appear. When the battery is dead, this light is red. Pretty self-explanatory.
Once you're synced via the app, you can set up your notification preferences. You can choose to be alerted to text messages, social media notifications, weather forecasts, and so much more! This watch is compatible with literally thousands of apps, so the possibilities are endless!
Once you've set your preferences, just sit back and allow the notifications to come in. When you receive an alert, this watch will vibrate to get your attention. Then you will see a brightly lit message flash across the screen, indicating what type of alert you're receiving.
Kyle hasn't seen this watch yet, as it is going to be a Christmas gift, but Dan and I have spent some time playing around with it. This watch is very, very cool, to say the least! I know Kyle will definitely appreciate having his world accessible right at his wrist. Plus, thanks to this watch, his iPhone will stay in his book bag where it belongs during school hours. The weather readings will come in handy, too, since Kyle walks to school and never checks the news to see what our local temperatures are. Thanks to the Martian Notifier, he will know whether or not he needs to bundle up like an Eskimo or grab an umbrella on his way out the door in the morning. In NE Ohio, these are common occurrences.
So if you're looking for a super-convenient way to stay on top of all of your important alerts, even if it is just Candy Crush letting you know your lives have replenished, definitely check out the Martian Notifier smartwatch. This nifty little watch not only looks great with all your winter fashions, it also keeps you more connected than ever before....Even if your phone is in your back pocket.
