World's First Smartwatch 2.0 with Sapphire Crystal Glass
Thanks to everyone's tremendous support, the Stretch Goal of $500K has been reached, confirming Sapphire Crystal Glass for EVERYONE's TrueSmart, free "on the house" :-) Congratulations to everyone for supporting and funding the World's First Smartwatch 2.0 with Sapphire Crystal Glass. TrueSmart's World's Firsts:
- World's First Smartwatch 2.0 with Sapphire Crystal Glass
- World's First Smartwatch 2.0 with Google Play App Store
- World's First Water-resistant Standalone & Companion Smartwatch 2.0
The spirit of TrueSmart emphasizes the Watch, rather than pounding the specs - the specs is simply good without question. It's the entire very wearable feel that sets TrueSmart apart as a unique timepiece. The smartwatch companies that are only pounding their specs and not taking care of the entire smartwatch experience misses the point of a smartwatch - it's not just another technology piece, it needs to be a wearable piece.
Here is the Press Release, feel free to copy/paste or highlight it to news sites, and to everyone you know.
Omate® TrueSmart™ Gets Even Better with Kickstarter – Stronger Specifications, More Apps.
Barely two weeks since Omate® TrueSmart™’s debut on the number one crowd funding website Kickstarter blasting through its funding goal in the first day, Omate has already made improvements to its product offering creating a better and more complete product for user’s total experience.
World’s First Smartwatch 2.0 with Sapphire Crystal Scratch-Proof Glass Already adopting sporting solid watch characteristics such as stainless steel alloy casing, a familiar standard watch size 45x45x14mm smaller than sports watch, IP67 water-resistant, the Omate® TrueSmart™ draws further inspiration from the grandmasters of watchmakers with Sapphire Crystal glass – the best scratch-proof used by the premium Swiss watch manufacturers.
World’s First Smartwatch 2.0 with full Google Play Apps Store
Full access to Google Play Store opens up a whole world of Apps – plenty of apps, something for almost everything you want to do – more Apps than any other platform, any other Smartwatch. In addition to maximum apps for Users, Google Play App Store also gives maximum access to users for Developers. Android Developers, the largest community of developers, are already familiar with Google Play App Store and knows they can reach all users via the store. This will ensure that more developers come on board and create new uses and new apps. More than 1000 developers have already pledged for TrueSmart™. Apps changed the Smartphone and Apps shall change the Smartwatch field.
TrueSmart™ My Wish App Contest
Already equipped with the largest collection of Apps from Google Play Apps Store, the Omate® TrueSmart™ doesn’t rest there. Being the first Smartwatch 2.0 with technological abilities conveniently and inconspicuously on the wrist everywhere you go, there are many new uses that can be created. The Contest stimulates Users and Developers to interact and create new ideas. Smarter new uses, smarter new Apps for Smartwatch fueled by TrueSmart™, further enhances the total TrueSmart™ experience. Currently the Contest is held on Google+ until the end of the Kickstarter campaign, and will be extended to all social media. Make a Wish and your Wish App might just come true.
Option for 1GB memory
Omate® TrueSmart™ is equipped standard with 512MB memory which is designed to run apps on the TrueSmart™ very well. Some users have a preference for 1GB. After comprehensive evaluation, an option to 1GB memory is made available to users, announced on the official update page of its Kickstarter project.
“What we are creating with the Omate® TrueSmart™ is first and foremost a watch, a watch you can wear and feel comfortable with, wearing it wherever you go and whatever you do - jogging, swimming, surfing,hiking,… Omate is your Outdoor mate in these situations. Then using our telecom technology expertise to make it smart, very smart – TrueSmart™. Through the TrueSmart™ we have been able to implement technology in the background and your life in the foreground tolet the total experience enhance your connected life all in the size, look and feel of a watch.” says Laurent Le Pen, CEO at Omate.
“We are engaging the user and developer communities to further fine-tune the entire experience - there’s nothing like this done before. This is absolutely the new way of bringing a successful product to the market by carefully listening to the end users, their needs and requirements. You are watching it live as it happens, we invite you to tune in and join in!” says Nick NM Yap, Head Media & Community at Omate.
The Omate® TrueSmart™ Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign runs until September 20th, 2013. The improved specs have already been implemented in the production plan. Android developers in the community have started working on apps and showing their app development for TrueSmart™ on various social media and developer’s forums.
Omate® TrueSmart™ with Better Specs and More Apps, tuned by user and developer communities ensures the TrueSmart™ further solidifies its position as the first and best Smartwatch 2.0. With the successful funding already secured on Day 1, Omate has already started production preparations, with a shipping schedule of October for developers and November for supporters.
