Omate might not necessarily be a brand many would have come to associate with smartwatches, but the company has churned out several wearables in the past that are part of its TrueSmart smartwatch lineup. Now the company has officially announced a new addition to the TrueSmart+ family with the TrueSmart+.
The TrueSmart+ follows in the footsteps of its predecessors with its Android-powered operating system. Yup, this smartwatch does not run Android Wear, but rather the full build of Android 5.1 overlaid with the company’s OUI 3.0, which according to Omate will be compatible with Android apps.
It will feature a 1.54-inch display with a 320×320 resolution, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, a 700mAh battery which should allow it to last a while, a built-in microphone,speaker, Bluetooth/WiFi connectivity, GPS, magnetometer, gyroscope, and will sport a metal build with a sapphire coated display.
There is also a Bosch BHI160 sensor that will allow the watch to keep tracking your activities, like step-counting while ensuring that it won’t drain your battery unnecessarily. If this looks and sounds like the smartwatch you’ve been looking for, the Omate TrueSmart+ will be priced at $169.
Omate also has another model called the TrueSmart-i. This model will come with a built in camera, but will sport a smaller 240×240 display and will run on Android 4.4 KitKat. However according to Omate, both smartwatches can also double up as a remote display for GoPro through the GoPro Android app.
The TrueSmart-i will be priced at $149 and both models will be available for pre-order exclusivley via Omate’s website from the 22nd of September to the 31st of October.
