It also plays nice with your car, prompting you to put the brakes on if your heart rate's too high, as well as reminding you of scheduled maintenance dates and sending over info on road conditions.&nbsp;</p> <p>The Nismo will be available in black, white and a black and red combo, with a lithium battery that will, Nissan claims, last seven days after charging from its micro USB port.</p> <p>Will the Nismo's car connectivity be enough to make it stand out from the growing smartwatch herd? Or is this another <a href="">smartwatch that's trying to do too much</a>? We'll find out soon – the Nismo will be on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show from 10 September to 22 September.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> Nismo Nissan Smartwatch Mon, 09 Sep 2013 10:49:21 +0000 Stephen Graves 1426408 at
