Ever wondered about what will be the next game changing product on the smartwatch market? Omate recently announced their new standalone smartwatch with carbon fiber bezel powered by Android. And this just may be it!
The product is called Omate Rise and features Android 5.1 Lollipop, 3G compatible with US and EU regulations, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth Low Energy. The watch can be connected to both iPhone and Android smartphones via Olink apps.
Also voice control is said to be the next big thing. So, Omate teamed up with Amazon Alexa to bring the Alexa voice service to Omate users. Backers will receive their Beta Tester Edition through over-the-air update by the end of the year.
But that’s not it with the partnerships! Omate also partnered with Ting for the embedded 3G nano SIM card. The Omate Rise Limited Edition with Amazon Alexa is an exclusive offer. A special number will be engraved on the nano SIM card back plate starting from 001 to 999.
