Many of you know I am obsessed with smartwatches. Actually, I am obsessed with the idea of a smartwatch, but I haven’t found one that is made right. Smartwatches always seem to have some kind of downside – could the Omate TrueSmart break this trend?
We stopped by the Omate booth at CES 2014 and got some good time with the CEO. He gave us an overview of the device and its features. Check it out:
I suppose what I like the most is that this is a full Android device. It is not smartphone-dependent and you can just stick a SIM card in it to use it as your phone. In addition, the user can also connect it to any smartwatch and get all the features the TrueSmart offers.
