Storage/Other by stefan @ 2014-02-07

The latest breed of smartwatches have a lot of integrated stuff and run on Android OS; the TrueSmart from Omate comes with hardware GPS, can receive and make phone calls, browse the web and many more; we could think it as a fully-featured smartphone disguised as a wristwatch. Let's check the product in more detail now, shall we?

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:


IP67 Water-Resistant


When we were designing the TrueSmart, we thought what is that one most basic and important thing for a wearable? Water-resistance! There’s rain, thunderstorms, simple washing of hands, redbull spills, showers, swimming, jogging… unlike a smartphone that you put away, a smart wearable you wear with you – we don’t think anyone is going to take off their smartwatch before washing their hands. So in the design process, we ensured the TrueSmart is designed to IP67 standards, perfect for daily use, resistant to water and dust.

-Metal body encasing internals in a watertight seal

-Charging connectors are special waterproof connectors

-microSIM card slot is designed at the side for a balance of water-resistance and accessibility, with a relatively easy to access water-tight cover

-Side buttons were added for simple interaction in water (touchscreen does not work when there is water on the screen)


Smartwatch 2.0


Smarter than all existing smartwatches, faster processing dual core brain than any other, most developer- & user-friendly Android 4.2 platform than the others, more functions than all, stronger than a rock with a protective metal casing and silicone strap, welcome to the new generation of Smartwatch 2.0, the Omate TrueSmart.




More multifunction than any other smartwatches: watch, phone, camera, GPS, notifications, Android apps, LBS tracker, SOS device, monitoring and more.


Smart Wearable Technology


Imagine Google Glass with Omate TrueSmart’s complete phone & 2G/3G data connectivity abilities, you would be able to go 100% wearable. Omate TrueSmart functions as the world’s smallest wearable smartphone, a perfect companion for all your smart wearables.


World's 1st Smartwatch 2.0 with Dual Core processor


Omate® TrueSmart™ is powered by a 1.3GHz dual core processor ensuring all your apps will run smoothly and developers can create new apps and uses beyond imagination using Omate full suite of sensors independently or in an ecosystem with other wearables and smartphones.


World's 1st Smartwatch 2.0 with Google Play App Store [new] - Delayed


Omate TrueSmast is the World's First Smartwatch 2.0 with Google Play App Store, full access. This gives maximum access to the world's largest collection of apps for users, and also gives maximum access to users for app developers. Omate is also committed to facilitate and encourage the interaction between users and developers pushing the frontier of apps and new uses for Smartwatch 2.0.


World's 1st Smartwatch 2.0 with Sapphire Crystal Glass - the Best Scratch-Proof


Sapphire Crystal is stronger and more premium (pronounced as "more expensive") than mineral crystal. Used by the grandmasters of watchmakers to protect their masterpieces (Rolex, Omega, Hublot, Tissot, Tag Hauer etc). The only things that can scratch a Sapphire Crystal glass is another sapphire crystal and a diamond. Time-tested and with a history of proven track record, Sapphire Crystal glass has protected the timeless timepieces we all know, also protected the investments of their owners (Imagine a hundred thousand dollar Rolex scratched!). We hope that Sapphire Crystal glass shall protect each and every Omate TrueSmart - not just for the active lifestyles of rock-climbing and kayaking, also for the daily life protecting against that accidental scratch from a steel gate.


Make history, make a statement, make Omate TrueSmart the first Sapphire Crystal Smartwatch and set new standards for all Smartwatch 2.0.


Standalone AND Companion


Smartwatches launched till now have been mostly Bluetooth companion accessory to the Smartphone. Omate TrueSmart is a new generation of Smartwatch 2.0 which are standalone AND companions. There are two camps of thoughts, some users believe smartwatches should be standalone, some prefer them as companions. With Omate TrueSmart, this debate is moot. Why choose? When you can have best of BOTH!. Connect Omate TrueSmart as a companion to any of your smartphones (all smartphones are supported) via Bluetooth 4.0 or Wifi 802.11b/g/n. Or as a complete standalone, your Omate TrueSmart follows you wherever you go, even to places you wouldn’t have thought of bringing your phone – swimming, beach, jogging, clubbing, hiking, and more.
