New entrepreneurs still figuring out what products that would receive investor supports may consider developing a smartwatch. The Omate TrueSmart is another smartwatch model that does wild in the popular crowdfunding website, the Kickstarter. The funding project has been recently closed and Omate managed to gain more than one million dollars in funding from more than 4,000 enthusiastic backers.
The Omate TrueSmart does sound interesting for a relatively affordable $199 smartwatch. It comes with support for 2G and 3G networks. It has a dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 100 hours of standby time. The TrueSmart may not last us a whole week like Pebble’s smartwatch, but it’s certainly more.
The built-in camera can record 720p videos and the interface is based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. The touchscreen display is especially bright and protected with scratch-resistant sapphire face. Now that the funding phase has been concluded, we can wait patiently for the eventual arrival of the device.
