Placing Bets On Your Smart Watch
It is predicted that technology doubles its capacity every six years, which is a startling fact when you stop to really think about it. How technology will have advanced in six years in nearly impossible to envision, but will be upon us so quickly that we’ll have to learn to deal with it soon enough. It can be a little overwhelming, but on the plus side, we can certainly take advantage of some amazing new gadgets and doodads.
One such doodad that has been gaining popularity in recent years is the smart watch. Connecting to you phone, a smart watch sits on your wrist, displaying key information from the device it’s paired with. Messages can be sent and received, calls answered, and notifications displayed from active applications. But, for those New Zealanders who are interested in the betting scene, a smart watch is also capable of one other extremely useful trick; it can quickly keep you up to date on key betting opportunities.
Smart Watch Betting Applications
There are a number of betting applications now specifically available for smart watches, and they are certainly worth a look, for those who are interested. The application is installed on the device the smart watch pairs with, after which the application can feed selected information directly to the watch display. The user can customise the application as they prefer, specifying preferred sports or betting options. When events occur in the selected sport or betting market, the information is displayed on the watch, helping the user to keep up to date.
Bets may also be placed directly on the smart watch, is perhaps the most useful part of the smart watch applications. Of course, it is slightly more difficult to browse betting options on such a small screen, so this work best if the application is setup to display a selection of the best options, allowing the user to select the option they prefer.
Smart Watch Limitations
It’s true that a smart watch has a small screen, as has already been mentioned, but a great deal of information can be shared in the little space. It is still, however, recommended that the smart watch owner use the application in conjunction with the phone, for best results. Updates can easily be received on the watch without ever having to refer to the phone, but it is still certainly worthwhile to check the main application on occasion.
Also keep in mind that smart watches are not capable of streaming video, so live sporting events may not be watched. It is, however, possible to get live updates sent to the watch, so sporting events may be kept up to date with, even if they are not being viewed.
