Smartwatches could not replace Smartphones soon, but they still have a great chance of becoming companions of the latter.
Won Rhee, the creator of the VACHEN watch, believes that this smart watch is the perfect Accessory for fashion-conscious people. Technology enthusiasts may also find this product attractive, as it offers certain features.
The clock runs Android Gingerbread, but considering the app, Jelly Bean would be an Overkill. It connects to Smartphones via Bluetooth and also offers Wi-Fi, presumably to allow wearers to synchronize their watches with atomic clocks.

The VACHEN smartwatch for Early Birds, but the price increases as more things are added. Men are unlikely to be interested in wearing a wristwatch with Swarovski crystals, but women will certainly appreciate such a watch.
If Apple decides to launch its iWatch on the market, it will ultimately face serious competition from Pebble and others. In my opinion, VACHEN would also have posed a threat if it had more features.
