for a near-shore smart watch this is what i need:
1. Long battery life to last all day while GPS tracking.
2. Ability to call for help on Cell phone to get help. My apple watch face is very hard to operate when wet. There need to be a preprogrammed hardware button I think. Pressing on screen with web hands, does not work well.
3. Walkie Talkie mode! (Apple Watch already has it. ) but it is only peer-to-peer. I would love to have a group Walkie Talkie for those downwinders or just talking to buddies while ridding.
4. integration with major apps so that can download and nicely display the route ridden.
5. Altimeter, accelerometer to replace need for WOO. And also an app that can display all the jumps , etc.
6. Solar recharging.. While riding the watch is exposed to sun, why not charge it while we ride.
7. emergency identification. Maybe watch can beam info to rescue operators about your name , phone, family, blood etc. if you are rescued and are unconscious ?
8. recoding of voice (voice recorder ). If you know you are not coming back, maybe can leave voice message to be heard after they find you.. (well this is very grim I know.. but just trying to come up with a use case)
9. Live display of current speed, max speed, Avr speed..
10. Tactile feedback, when you jump and make a daily record? (without having to look at the watch) maybe other types of feedback when reaching max speed etc.. ()configurable )
11. Weather reports, alerts of upcoming storm, etc.. (tactile or audio )
13. session timer.. (how long is a session, reminder to come-out to get rest etc. )
14. Shared GPS.. (you vs your buddies). Can wee your buddies speed , height for the session if using a particular App that basically records a shared session between friends in real time.
15. waterproof obviously and can withstand hard falls ..
16 bluetooth for music. must be able to play music while ridding to a headset.
17. able to play music from the watch.. (ie: download music to a watch)
18. Streaming music is a plus.. But probably battery drain.. I do stream on Apple Watch sometimes.
19. Watch should come with a waterproof nice headset.
20. sorry forgot. it should show time also
Hmm.. I think this should be enough feature requests?
Hope you can make this watch.
