Omate TrueSmart Kickstarter shipments will run through December

It looks like a shipping status update has arrived from the folks at Omate. And jumping right in here, it looks like the smartwatches will be shipping based on specs, as opposed to when you when you backed on Kickstarter. In other words, those who got in as an early bird will not necessarily be amongst the first to receive their TrueSmart.

According to details provided by Omate, their "priority is to launch the developer edition with rooted software followed by the standard edition." Other details here mention how the Developer Edition software has been finalized and is ready to be loaded onto the production model watches. While no shipping date was offered, it was said that production and assembly will start on Monday.

Aside from the Developer Edition TrueSmart, the remaining watches will be run in batches -- depending on the specs you have, as opposed to when you did the backing on Kickstarter. Basically, it looks like those who upgraded any specs on the watch will be waiting a few extra weeks.

Omate has said, the "production will run in batches according to the different models." The models include the 512MB/4GB, then 1GB/4GB and will be followed by the 1GB/8GB model. Assuming there are no further delays, these will begin in mid-November and run through mid-December.

  • 512MB+4GB (2100MHz EU 3G): Mid Nov
  • 512MB+4GB (1900MHz US 3G): Begin of Dec
  • 1GB+4GB (1900MHz US &2100MHz EU 3G): Begin of Dec
  • 1GB+8GB (2100MHz EU 3G): Mid Dec
  • 1GB+8GB (1900MHz US 3G): Mid Dec

    Man, I am so happy I did not back this project… Every single report is bad…

      honestly, with them adding as much as they have (1gb ram version, 8gb flash, or any combination of those) if it only pushes delivery back a month or so, that is still amazing considering KS is known for 6+ month delays.

      Add in that the cable became a dock, free spare battery, and it is a helluva deal.

      (hopeing devs get playstore sorted though.)

        Play store is out of the table as Google said NO, delays should not happen as Omate made many preparations to avoid that. For now TWO MAJOR promises have been broken… Not sure about you but I would like people to keep promises given… For me it is a deal breaker…

        Play store is a no…for now.
        A lot of chatter has surrounded the possibility of playstore officially coming to omate (not unlike it did to NOOK and soon Blackberry10) once Google announces their own smartwatch, creating a new device category for the Play Store.
        i agree though, for a consumer product, that is a big fail for the average consumer to work around.

      Hi melhiore, you mean the device is not up the standard? or what you mean by that bad….

      • melhiore

        Device is not available yet however MAIN selling point for Omate was Google Play access and dispatch times. Both promises has been broken…
