A new wrist device has launched on the Kickstarter website this month called the Omate Smartwatch which is looking to provide a more comprehensive solution to the smartwatch market and provide a truly standalone water-resistant smartwatch, that works independently from smartphones.
The Omate Smartwatch is equipped with a Dual Core Cortex A7 1.3GHz processor and fitted with a 1.54’’ TFT by LG display with a resolution of 240 x 240 and runs a custom Omate UI 1.0 on Google’s latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
Other fathers of the new Omate Smartwatch include G-sensor, E-Compass, Gyroscope, IP67 as well as 2G GSM: GPRS class 12 EDGE Multi-Slot Class 12, 3G WCDMA: HSPA 7.2Mbps/5.76Mbps, WiFi: IEEE 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity together with GPS support.
It includes a 512MB + 4GB memory that is expandable using microSD 8/16/32GB cards together with a 600 mAh battery offering up to 100 hours standby time. Its developers explain a little more about their company and new smartwatch.
“Omate began designing and developing smartwatches more than a year ago, many designs were drawn and discarded, mock-ups made to select that best fit on the wrist. We wanted a design that is foremost a wrist watch, a wrist watch that would look like a wrist watch, and feel like a wrist watch.
A wrist watch must foremost be water-resistant, for daily use or going with you to wherever. You might be washing your hands or doing the dishes dipping your hands into a pool of water – simple tasks that you don’t think much about – unlike a smartphone, a wrist watch has to be with you.”
The Omate Smartwatch project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
