Alexa on your Wrist Voice Assistant

Are you ready for a world of Alexa everywhere?  You knew it was coming, and word has come out that you can now get Alexa integrated into the Martian PT 02 Smartwatch.  It's been described as arousing nostalgia while still being true to a modern smartwatch.  For $295 you can have this sleek watch on your wrist.  This looks like a man's watch, so the ladies will have to wait a while to get their hands on this device.  

Like other smartwatches, this one syncs with your mobile phone.  It is just new off the manufacturing press and you must install the latest firmware, and download and run associated software on your iPhone or Android.  

Interestingly enough, it appears you can also use other voice assistants like Siri or Google Now.  There is not much discussion on this, but it must be using your mobile phone for that.

Alexa on the Martian PT 02 smartwatch does not support playback of music, other than on the iPhone.  Alexa does have the ability to control your home automation system and to interact with your calendar.  It says you setup your location from the Alexa Companion App. There is also the ability to place and receive phone calls from the watch and see your text messages.

As a way to entice the early adopters, I recommend visiting the site and scrolling to the bottom and click on the "Get Discount" popup where you can get 30% off the watch along with free shipping.
