We’ve seen smartphones get thinner, flatter, wider and maybe a bit longer, but not one that fit on your wrist like a watch. Okay maybe there have been some iterations but none come as clearly set as the Omate TrueSmart smartwatch. Yep, you heard me, smartwatch. Its pretty awesome from what I’ve seen, and if it does debut with the specs that its rumored to have then it just might be a hit. So for head-gear we already are expecting Google Glass, for your wrist, the Omate TrueSmart smartwatch. The Android geek attire is coming on nicely? Yes?
So, what really is the Omate Truesmart smartwatch? The geniuses who came up with the thing haven’t quite confirmed what platform they’ll be using but your guess is as good as mine, Android. They just haven’t made it official. This particular wrist watch doesn’t require a smartphone to run, it has camera, watch, phone, GPS and a host of other features that you would find on a normal smartphone device.
Whats under the hood?
The Omate True smart sports a dual-core processor. A 1.3GHz Cortex A7 MediaTek MT6572 processor to be exact. 1GHz aint bad from such a device, considering its functions and size. The watch will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean, so you can expect the full features as well as you would get on a smartphone, features such as voice texting and voice search as well as voice calling. This also means that the Omate smartwatch will be able to run Android apps natively and properly.
The Omate TrueSmart smartwatch also comes with Bluetooth and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n as well as 3G connectivity. You can still pair it up to a tablet, Google Glass or a smartphone too. Display wise, you’ll find an AMOLED color display that’s 1.5 inches with a 240×240 resolution. Storage, it features 4GB of internal storage, a micro-SD card slot up-to 32 GB, 512MB of RAM and A-GPS along with an accelerometer and magnetometer.
Lets head over to the camera. Here it boasts a 5 megapixel shooter with auotfocus. The watch will accept a Micro-SIM as well in order to enable the 2G/3G standalone functionality. To top it all off, it has an internal speaker which is useful if you’re using it on its own. Oh, and the watch is also root-able, and will support clockwork mod recoveries.
Its exterior is made out of metal, which gives it that serious feel and texture, well that is if you prefer metal to plastic,of which almost everyone does. A 600 mAh battery to back it all up, too. There aren’t any real solid specs or price announced by the makers, but it’s expected in October. It will be interesting to see how the Android platform comes out on such a small display.
