Agent smartwatch, compatible with Android, iOS and Windows Phone, surpasses $1 million in funding
Following on the heels of the incredibly successful Pebble smartwatch, which crowd-funded its way to $10 million, the Agent smartwatch is hoping for the same success. From Secret Labs and The House of Horology, the Agent phone is said to be the "smartest" smartwatch with great battery life (7 days using Bluetooth, 30 days using it just as a watch) and "powerful apps". Compatible with Android, iOS and Windows Phone, the Kickstarter campaign for the watch has just ended with over $1 million raised ($1,012,742 to be precise) from 5685 backers.

The smartwatch, which features a 1.28 inch display with 128 x 128 resolution, can connect with both traditional and Low Energy Bluetooth devices. Agent supports the Qi wireless charging standard and reservations for the device will be taken starting on July 1st with mass production beginning in December. Shipments will go out shortly thereafter. The price of the Agent smartwatch will be $299.

Cool device, but I couldn't justify a $300 watch. I could get a new phone, tablet, basic laptop, or motherboard, processor, and GPU for my desktop for that much. Closer to $100-150 would be as much as I would pay.

Too expensive... A "smart watch" which is mostly an accesory for our smartphone should be 100$ tops... specially if it relies on the phone's memory through bluetooth and does not have GB of storage by itself... Also it should be waterproof...

Put the watch in the box with Google Glass, keep the price the same... and you got me interested.

Price aside, I hate how the text looks pixelated, I hate that. Put a higher resolution and some colors on that screen. I'm sure you are put a bigger battery.
