Meta Watch is a developer-friendly smartwatch used to heighten user engagement and drive app usage. Meta Watch, when paired with iOS (4S) or Android-based smart phones, enable new kinds of glanceable interactions. In the same way that glancing at a wristwatch is more simple than pulling out a pocket watch to check the time, glancing at Meta Watch is more convenient than pulling your phone out of a pocket or handbag to view alerts, notifications, and cloud-based information.
