The HeadWatch is a mix between a smartwatch and a Bluetooth headset
The developers say that the HeadWatch is compatible with iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices. Users can respond to texts, answer or reject calls, and view various push notifications from their smartphones. It is touted that the battery of the HeadWatch provides up to 2 days of battery life.
The developers behind the unusual wearable have priced it at $200. Still, the first 500 backers will get it for $169, whereas the next 1000 people will get the HeadWatch for $189. However, the HeadWatch might only see the day of light if it raises some $300,000 via IndieGoGo. At the time of writing, HeadWatch has been backed with $2,446 and the crowdfunding campaign will continue until May 7, 2014. If the campaign proves to be successful, the backers will receive their wearables almost a year later, in Q1 2015.

I still dont get it, why do I need a smartwatch if I have my smartphone right in my pocket??

Because smartphones nowadays are too big to handle (?)

I am wondering why phonearena wrote an article about something that only has $2,500 in funding....

backers only received it a year later? but until that time, much of the specs had already been upgraded to a whole new level...

You're talking in past tense. The watch won't come out for another year or more. That is what is confusing. This will be pretty old news in a year even if it does manage to get more funding.
