* A smartphone app connects to the car using a Bluetooth Smart device.

* Instant performance data while on the track and access to vehicle telematics.

Nismo watch can also track the user’s social performance across Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. This is done by using its Special Speed software.

In fact, the Nismo watch is an extension from the Nismo Lab which was launched earlier his year. It is a mobile laboratory which captures telemetric and biometrics data from Nismo athletes during their sporting events. This kind of technology also has the scope to be used in other areas.

Nismo Lab would be focusing on ECG, EEG and skin temperature sensors. This is done so that the data could be passed back to athletes with the help of a smart watch.

The watch is controlled with the help of only two buttons and the battery drains out in seven days with normal usage.

With such advanced technology modernizing our lives, one would surely expect a lot of automated devices in the coming few years.
