The Ubuntu Edge is an Indiegogo project that has smashed the crowdfunding record, but it failed to raise enough funds to hit the $32 million target, which means it was a failed project eventually. However, you will not have any kind of such problems with the Omate TrueSmart smartwatch that we talked about recently, which happened to beat its $100,000 funding request in a matter of days. Touted to be a “truly standalone water-resistant smartwatch” that will function without the need for you to purchase a smartphone in the first place courtesy of its internal 3G connection,
Just to refresh your memory, some of the other hardware specifications include it being water resistant to IP67 standards, a 1.5” LCD touchscreen display at 240 x 240 resolution, a dual-core 1.3GHz processor, 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in tow. Not only that, there is also a 5-megapixel camera, voice recognition, GPS, and a 600mAh battery built-in. Pretty cool, no? Now to wait for November and read about how the early units would fare. The thing is, now industry watchers and curious onlookers alike will be interested to see whether the Omate TrueSmart smartwatch is going to break the $10.2 million funding that the Pebble smartwatch achieved.
