Forget Dick Tracey, Invoxia takes your watch phone one-step further by allowing you to use a desk phone as the interface to your Apple Watch 3.
Technically, it is impressive to think you no longer need a phone – your watch connects you directly to the cellular network and bluetooth connects the watch to the Invoxia NVX 200 phone.
Serge Renouard, CEO and cofounder of invoxia said, “The Apple Watch 3 is part of this new step in the history of technologies that frees us from succumbing to the object.” He continued, “The conjunction between cloud and specialized, contextual equipment like the NVX 200, allows any professional wearing only an Apple Watch to benefit from the perfect equipment at the office – the kind that spontaneously connects to the watch and turns it into the best of desk phones”.
The dock comes with an adapter system that allows it to also plug into smartphones regardless of connector such as USB-C, Micro-USB or Lightning. Once in place, the following features are enabled:
- Take calls in hands-free mode or with the telephone handset for a more comfortable use
- Benefit from a high-quality sound, for conferences of up to 5 people
- Dial the calls straight from a physical keyboard
- Quickly access the telephone contacts and the call history of the smartphone via the physical wheel
- Use the NVX 200 with all your communication application (e.g Skype, Hangouts, FaceTime etc.)
- Charge the smartphone
- Associate contacts to speed dial keys
Many will read this and think they don’t need to a dedicated phone to connect to their smartwatch. While this generally makes sense. After all, you battery won’t last all day if you’re a heavy user. Since this an added function, why not take advantage of it though?
You aren’t paying extra – it’s just another reason to buy the phone – especially if you have Apple smartphones and watches.
We’re impressed with the Invoxia NVX 200 and give the company credit for being on the leading edge of connectivity between wearable technology and desk phones.
The NVX 200 is available on www.invoxia.com at the price of $249.00.
