er for travelers to access flight, ho
Ok, I just wrote my summary of watch the watch, or samsung smartwatches as they call it, musing about what on earth we could do with a smartwatch. Then hey presto, there is a Tripit app already on the watch. I like the sound of this.
Hands Free to carry luggage and sip a coffee while you check your flights on your wrist
“Wearable computing is perfectly suited for travelers, so we’re very excited to debut TripIt for Samsung GALAXY Gear,” says Rich Adams, head of mobile for TripIt. “Imagine walking through the airport as you normally do, but now your flight information is strapped to your wrist, so your hands are free to grab a cup of coffee or a magazine. This is an important milestone in our mission to make life easier for travelers.”
TripIt, the first travel app developer to integrate with the GALAXY smartwatch. Having information displayed on your wrist makes it easier to check trip plans, flights, hotels, and info leaving your hands free. According to Tripit “Now you can quickly view departure times or confirmation numbers, call the airline or hotel, get maps or directions, and share trip plans with a colleague or loved one.”
