Another day, another smart watch project trying to raise funds from the public. The new kid in town is called Omate TrueSmart and it’s apparently the world’s first IP67 certified smart watch, meaning it’s water-resistant and dustproof.
In addition, unlike many other smart watches, this is a stand-alone product that can work even without a smartphone. It’s a phone for itself, running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with a special Omate UI singing on top.
Specs wise, TrueSmart rocks a 1.3GHz dual-core Cortex A7 processor, 1.54-inch 240×240 capacitive touchscreen, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, 512MB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4GB of expandable storage. It has a 600mAh battery that is apparently good for up to 100 hours of standby time.
The Omate TrueSmart will be shipped in October and November to supporters who pledge at least $179. The project has already surpassed its goal of $100,000 and it still has some 28 days to go. Check it out from this page at Kickstarter… after watching the demo video below…
