Meta Watch announces Bluetooth 4.0 smartwatch for iOS

Previously available in beta only for Android devices, Meta Watch has officially announced that its smartwatch platform will now be compatible with iOS devices with Bluetooth 4.0 technology as well, citing both the iPhone 4S and the third-gen iPad in the process. For those unfamiliar, the Meta Watch is similar to the other smartwatches that we have covered in the past, such as the Android-based I’m Watch and the Kickstarter success, the Pebble smartwatch.

For those still new to the concept of smartwatches, these are watches that basically provide us with an interface which we can wear on our wrists that will display information from our smartphones. This will allow users to check for emails, the weather, the time, messages, missed calls, etc without having to dig into handbags or pockets for their smartphone. The information displayed on the watch can be customized via an iOS app which in turn will pair with the watch via the low-energy Bluetooth 4.0 technology.

The Meta Watch itself will feature a 96×96 pixel LCD display, six fully programmable buttons, a 3-axis accelerometer, a vibrating motor, ambient light sensor along with an API that developers will have access to that will allow them to come up with more features and functionality for the watch. At the moment the Meta Watch appears to be more of a developer’s toolkit rather than a commercial product, but if you’re interested in getting your hands on it anyway, it is available for purchase for $199 via its website.
