IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Martian Watches has been named a 2015 Award Nominee by the internationally renowned Global Mobile Awards, which is celebrating 20 years of achievement and innovations across the mobile industry. Martian Watches was named one of only five nominees shortlisted in the Best Wearable Mobile Technology Category, one of nine categories that are recognized by the GSMA.
“Congratulations to all the nominees in the 20th Global Mobile Awards,” said Michael O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA. “With a new record of over 800 entries, the competition has been greater than ever – reflecting the dynamic pace of growth and evolution across the mobile world. We look forward to celebrating 20 years of mobile achievement and innovation with all the nominees and winners on Tuesday, March 3, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.”
Martian Watches takes a unique approach to the development of its watches by focusing on making the classic watch ‘smart’ to complement the cell phone’s capabilities, rather than attempting to duplicate the phone’s screen on the user’s wrist. Martian Notifier is a sporty, fashion-forward analog watch that is always on and receives customized alerts from thousands of apps, including email, SMS, calendar, fitness stats, bank alerts and more. When paired with an Android or iOS device, Notifier provides nearly instantaneous notifications on the integrated scrolling OLED readout as well as providing unique “Smart Notifications” to users’ wrists for eyes-free awareness due to customized vibration patterns for different alerts.
Martian Watches will have both its Martian Notifier line and new 2015 models of its award-winning Martian Voice Command line of smartwatches on display at Hall Congress Square Stand CS124 during the Mobile World Congress event March 2-5, 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.
“We are honored to be named as a final nominee to the elite group of companies that are chosen for GSMA’s Global Mobile Awards,” said Jeffrey Hsieh, CEO of Martian Watches. “Receiving an award of this caliber is a great testament to our continued drive to create the most technologically-advanced fashionable timepieces, for people to utilize as a companion in their busy mobile lifestyles.”
The Global Mobile Awards afternoon ceremony will take place on Tuesday, March 3, at 2:30 pm in Hall 4, Auditorium 1 at the Mobile World Congress Show in Barcelona, Spain.
The Global Mobile Awards are judged by more than 300 independent experts, analysts, journalists, academics and in some cases, mobile operator representatives.
