Omate has something new in store for those people who are into the smartwatch game. Not many people have gotten into the wearable craze but these two new Omate smartwatches might finally make you. Even if these two are just updated versions of the first TrueSmart watch released a couple of years ago, the TrueSmart-i and TrueSmart+ are definitely better.
Omate boasts that the smartwatch models could very well stand on their own. Even without an Android smartphone, the TSi and TS+ could even work as their own Android devices. This means that unlike other models that act as extensions of an Android device, the TrueSmart watches can work on their own, thanks to the advanced specs and features.
TrueSmart+ doesn’t run on Android Wear but on AndroidTM 5.1 Lollipop with the Omate User Interface 3.0. Features include a 1.54-inch display screen, 320 X 320 resolution, low power Bosch BHI160 sensor hub, a capacitive touch panel, Micro-SIM card holder, WiFi / 2G / 3G and GPS antennas found on the rubber straps, and an Ocharger. The TrueSmart-i also has the same features but unlike the TS+, it comes with a camera.
There will be limited editions of the TrueSmart-i and TrueSmart+ smartwatches. Pre-order has already started today, September 22, and will go on until October 31. The S$149 TrueSmart-i only runs Android 4.4 KitKat and will have 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, and 240 x 240 display. Meanwhile, the TrueSmart+ runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and has 1GB RAM, 8GB built-in storage, and 320 X 320 display–all for $169. Expect orders to arrive in November.
