A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

This watch is an all-in-1 smart phone and fitness tracker packed with new features, fully compatible with Android and Apple devices.

Power At Your Fingertips
You can customize your X1 Watch with millions of Apps. It connects to all 3G network towers and has integrated WiFi for optimum use and flexibility at home, in public, or abroad. With your SIM card inserted you can use any of the Apps with your data plan.
It’s built-in haptic sensor is responsive to touch, giving you a gentle vibration each time you press a key, and you can also hear keysounds.
Charging is fast and easy with the cradle-charger (included) and takes only 30 minutes to fully charge from empty using any USB charger or power bank. On standby X1 will last about 2-3 days before recharging, and while using WiFi and BlueTooth and mobile data you can expect it to last all day. With heavy use, of course the battery will need to be charged more frequently.
Whilst designing the X1 Watch we considered all the things you really wanted and needed to make this technology more practical. With that in mind, we have added features and technology that no other smart watch uses. Here is a simple chart to highlight the key differences.
We designed the unique Android operating system so it's easy to learn and suitable for people of all ages. Downloading Apps is a breeze, and every App will show its name directly below the icon so you never have to guess which App you are going to click.
X1 Watch is constructed with very high quality metal alloys and electronic components, so there cannot be any fatigue or rust. The wrist strap is fully adjustable, made from high grade silicon. We chose a traditional strap with a prong and holes for adjustment, it can never accidentally fall off your wrist.

Why Choose KickStarter
Put simply, we need funding to manufacture this watch; to make it a real life commodity instead of a dream or prototype. The minimum production run from the factory, and all the molds and components that make this technology possible, all needed to be engineered and tested. Now we need to mass-produce the watch in order to bring it to market.
Weselected KickStarter as the platform to launch because of the size and integrity of its community. We saw a need to bring this product to the largest possible market so it would accelerate our growth and distribution, thereby offering more support and service to our loyal customers through controlled infrastructure. We have optimized the X1 Watch to meet all demands of desired future technologies yet to be available in other major brands. Disregarding the existing competing products in our category, we developed a more expansive user interface and a simpler experience with Apps and functions that are familiar and understood by everyone. Any backer upgrading to an X1 Watch will experience an easy transition. Your input on this journey is vital to us as we strive to respond and create during the evolution and development of our products. The KickStarter community has encouraged us, challenged us, and inspired us to do a better job than our forerunners. With your support, our commitment to make great technologies accessible to everyone will be more extensive and more accelerated. Thank you for joining us on our quest.

Risks and challenges
It has taken 2 years to get the software and functions to operate without error. Development has been challenging and slower than we had planned, especially when we added a more advanced chipset and had to modify the software. However as you can see, the video is showing the working/fully operational prototype in all its glory. We are so excited to finally share this new technology with the world. Our production team and factory are already in place, on standby for manufacturing and shipping. All the challenges before us were solved, we listened to what the public wanted, and we made it happen! We created the smartest, smallest, and most advanced cell phone in the world that you wear on your wrist! The few bugs we encountered have been squashed and our item is 100% ready to change the way our world communicates.
