The bangle like device measures biometric data like the driver’s heart rate as well as performance data like fuel consumption. It connects to the car’s on-board computer system via Bluetooth 4.0 over a smartphone app. The app then sends tailored messages from Nissan, directly to the driver.

The smartwatch use a snap-fit mechanism to attach to the wrist and a simple interface operated with two buttons. Nissan says it will charge by way of micro-USB and battery can last for 7 days with normal use.

 

There’s no words on when the Nismo smartwatch would become available.
