Omate has designed a new smartwatch with voice calling, 2G and 3G data connectivity and other attractive features.
If you are not a big fan of today's trending big-screen smartphones and looking for something small, really small, then Omate TrueSmart watch is just the thing you need. Omate launched TrueSmart on Kickstarter, a platform for raising funds for creative projects, Wednesday, and has successfully surpassed its goal of achieving $100,000 in funding.
The small wearable gadget is powered by 1.3GHz dual core processer and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with support for 2G and 3G data connectivity. Users can make voice calls and get text messages as the smartwatch has built in support for microSIM. The watch can be either used as a standalone or be tethered via Bluetooth to Android and iOS devices.
Omate TrueSmart features a 1.54-inch TFT LG display with a 240 x 240 pixel resolution and sports a 5-migapixel camera. The promotional video shows support for third party apps like Facebook and Instagram from within the watch. It also includes GPS and vibration alerts. TrueSmart supports Wi-Fi too.
Despite the small size with multiple features, the watch packs a 600 mAh battery with a standby time of 100 hours. Alongside the microSIM slot, a microSD card slot allows users to expand the storage up to 32 GB, however, the watch has a built in 4 GB internal storage and 512 MB RAM.
The Omate TrueSmart is water resistant. Pushing the envelope even further, the Omate smartwatch features gesture controls and supports Google Voice Search.
The Omate TrueSmart currently has 718 backers (at the time of writing), who will be getting their devices in the first two installments of shipping due this October and November. The watch is available at $199 but early birds can place their order for $189. A limited offer of $179 was sold out within 24 hours.
