A Full Blown Smartphone For Your Wrist

o1

Smartwatches are becoming a big trend right now, or at least they are trying to become a big trend. The idea is great, but the first round of smartwatches to hit the scene we’re almost more trouble than they were worth. It is more of an expensive inconvenience more than anything when your smartwatch randomly un-tethers from your phone and shuts off, doesn’t get all the app notifications that it should, or only works with either an iPhone or an Android.

The Omate TrueSmart Smartwatch 2.0 has solved this problem. It isn’t like any other smartwatch. It doesn’t even tether to your smartphone, this smartwatch actually IS a smartphone.

There really isn’t much that this smartphone can do that the TrueSmart can’t. This watch will make phone calls, take pictures, shoot videos, and it even has a SIM card slot. The TrueSmart runs Android 4.2.2. and according to Omate’s website will soon be upgraded to 4.3. This watch can also connect to WiFi, and has Bluetooth. This is truely one smartwatch that has done it right. It’s literally a full blown smartphone that you wear on your wrist. Oh yeah, and to top it all of: It’s fully water resistant.

The TrueSmart runs on Google Play. You can get any app that you would normally be able to get on any other Android Smartphone. Checking your Facebook or sending a tweet is no issue. You can even get your Instagram game going with the built in 5 megapixel camera that also shoots video in 720p.

Earlier in the year, Omate launched a Kickstarter campaign to fun the production of the watch. Now, the greatest smartwatch of all time is available for pre-order on their website. The watch comes in either a 4GB model or an 8GB model and the price range is $249 to $299. I think the price is pretty reasonable compared to most smartwatches on the market, and when you think about how much more you are getting for the money compared to the others, it’s a no brainer for me.

The display on the watch is 1.54 inches of curved saphire crystal which is basically impossible to scratch, especially with normal every day use. The body of the watch is metal, attractive, and inconspicuous. The built in speakerphone offers great sound and call quality. This may be odd in public situations, but for $39 you can get the dedicated TrueSmart Bluetooth ear piece.

I have never been that big of a fan of wearables. But This new device has changed my mind. I think that any business person on the go could benefit greatly from the TrueSmart. Imagine all of the power and control that would be located directly on your wrist. I also think that in many office situations or important meetings, it would be much more professional looking than tapping away on your smartphone. When you think about it, it’s probably a lot harder to lose than a smartphone as well. It seems like a super slick idea to just have your smartphone on your wrist and a Bluetooth headset.

Is this the future of smartphones? I think that the Omate TrueSmart Smartwatch 2.0 may have just changed everything.
