Goophone does it again, watch this video of a fully featured, self-sufficient smartwatch
Sporting a front end that looks like Windows Phone, but running Android 4.0 with access to Google Play, the copy-masters at Goophone are bringing forth a new smartwatch that does not need to be connected to a smartphone to make things happen.

For $300, the Goophone Smartwatch with 3G can now be pre-ordered (black or white) and given the form factor versus what it costs, it is not that bad of a deal. Unlike other leading watch accessories, the Goophone Smartwatch is a fully functional smartphone on the wrist.

As you can see from the video below, the device is not exactly small, but what you trade in size, you exchange for functionality. The Goophone Smartwatch features a 1.54-inch 240x240 pixel display, equating to an acceptable pixel density of 220ppi. Running the show is a dual-core MediaTek CPU clocked at 1.2GHz.

On board is 512MB of RAM with 4GB of storage, a 2MP camera and a battery that is rated at 48 hours of stand-by time. We take that to mean that it would require nightly charging. It works on the common global GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and WCDMA (850/1900/2100 MHz) frequency bands, so you can expect it to work wherever you want.

The Goophone Smartwatch weighs 72 grams (just over 2.5 ounces) and measures 41.9 x 47.5 x 13.5 millimeters (1.6 x 1.85 x .53 inches) not including the wrist band. Maybe it is just us, perhaps the person’s hands in the video are just small, but the watch looks massive by comparison.

$300 for an SIM free smartphone is a pretty good deal in itself, what do you think about one that sits on your wrist and does the job?

Isn't a dual core in a smartwatch with a 1.5" screen a bit overkill? Then again, everyone plays Asphalt and Fifa on their watch, don't they?

I dont see how this is a copy, its better than everything that is currently available in the market, its exactly what all smartwatch look like in most videos, a smartphone on a wrist

Exactly, in this case they have surpassed what is currently available. When I heard about Samsung's smart watch, it seemed kinda ridiculous. It's basically a Bluetooth accessory. With this, you don't have to have a smartphone on your person to make calls or have functionality. If you could tether a WiFi tablet to it I could see this being big with the business crowd. Your WiFi tablet could always be connected as long as your smart watch has a cellular signal. This is the direction where smart watches should be headed towards, not as an extension of your smartphone.

So you (Samsung hater) are not going to carry a smartphone, but rather carry a watch phone and a tablet with you at all time.

My last phone was an S3. Finding faults & hating a company aren't the same thing. Samsung's hardware is fine, I just find the implementation flawed. And I'm not saying that you would always carry a tablet with you at all times, that would be just as flawed. What I'm saying is the primary device (or the one that can be used on it's own) should the be the watch. And if you need more usability THEN you'd move to the WiFi tablet you would tether off of your phone. I'm not a Samsung hater, but I'm also not blind enough to believe that ANY device is without it's flaws.

For someone that don't even own a smart watch you sure has a lot of negative comments. While i already own two smart watches with two more on the way.

I quite agree with that. Down the line 2 primary groups will evolve Smartphone ppl v/s Smartwatch+ Tablet ppl. There may be a small overlap group of Smartphone+Smart Watch and an even smaller group that buys all the 3 components. I feel like if i have a smartphone I don't need any other device. My music, media, work, messaging, etc. should all be on one device.

Samsung haters are becoming like those iDiots and iGnorants. So you rather pay 2 lines of service for a smartwatch and a smartphone.

I own Gear and Note 3. I love them both. I get three full days out of watch and almost 2 out of phone.My I Phone 5 could never do this. I love Samsung.

Why would you need 2 lines of service? Only 1 line for the smart watch and a tethered WiFi tablet. Or you could replace the WiFi tablet with a non activated smartphone and again, tether it to the smart watch. Either way, the feature that is missing on this watch is the ability to be a WiFi hotspot. Then you wouldn't need a smartphone as well. Think, THEN speak.

Stupiest idea. I wouldn't give up a smartphone for a smart watch. Little kids probably will.
