The creators of the new Omate TrueSmart Watch which closed a successful funding campaign over on the Kickstarter website on September 20th, have this week confirmed that the new Omate TrueSmart Developer Edition watch have been a delayed.
At the current time no information on a specific delivery date has been announced by the company but its developers explained “all efforts are being made to ensure shipping begins in the next week or two.”
The delay has been caused by parts which have arrive with a minor defect and include the packaging, charging cradle, audio speaker, metal clasp and wrist band
News of the delay is another blow for the company which is also in talks with Google trying to secure access to the Google Play Store, which was listed as one of the Omate TrueSmart Watch features that had already been sorted in their Kickstarter proposal for pledges.
But to make up for the lack of Google Play Store connectivity the company is shipping a Omate TrueSmart Watch dock to backers to make up for the delay until access is secured with Google.
To re-cap the Omate TrueSmart Watch is powered by a Dual Core Cortex A7 1.3GHz processor and fitted with a 1.54’’ TFT created by LG display offering a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. Running a custom Omate UI 1.0 based on Google’s latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
Other features of the new Omate Smartwatch include 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.
