Complementing the Filipinos’ social networking and digital lifestyle, the COOKOO watch connects with the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and the latest Android smartphones. It requires no charging as it uses a button-cell battery with extra-long life. It’s also designed to work with the COOKOO app to connect with and maximize certain features of your smartphone using Bluetooth technology. Features of the COOKOO watch include a camera trigger for taking group pictures from a distance; a remote control for your music app; different icons on the watch face that notify you of missed and incoming calls, emails, new messages, low battery, and alarms; an alarm activated by the watch to detect a misplaced device; and tag locations on the COOKOO app’s map via drop pin. The watches are available in black, silver, white, pink, blue, and limited-edition green.
