Omate TrueSmart teaser video takes Android for a spin

Omate seems to have slowed down on the TrueSmart updates since the Kickstarter came to an end, however judging from this latest video, it looks like they have been making some progress. We know the watch will be running a full version of Android. In this case Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, however we suspect some are concerned with how that may translate to the 1.54-inch 240 x 240 display.

Or for that matter, how well it will perform with the dual-core 1.3GHz Cortex A7 processor. The true test of these will likely be when the smartwatch begins arriving in the mailbox of those who backed it on Kickstarter. But for now the Omate team is giving us a fairly good look in this latest video. The performance seems to be good and the touchscreen appears to be responsive.

In addition, this video also offers a look at what may be a more everyday use case -- bouncing in and out of various apps. In the video we get a brief look at the watch in the Play Store, and also on Google+. This video also takes you into Facebook and the Settings.

Perhaps key here, while this may seem like an obvious statement, things appear to be just like Android, just done on a smaller scale. There was also a look at some of the watchfaces. The video showed a few of them, and also went into how a swipe up (on a face) will offer various color or style options.

Alternatively, it appears as if you can swipe to the left (from the right) to switch from face to face. Aside from the specs already mentioned in this post, the TrueSmart will also have a microSIM card slot, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 600 mAh battery, speaker/microphone and 5 megapixel camera. General Kickstarter shipments are expected in November with some developer editions expected to arrive in October.
