Omate takes the wraps off of two smartwatches
posted by Alan F. / Jan 04, 2015, 5:59 PM
The two watches will allow you to select from various watchfaces, and both will send you notifications when warranted. If you're trying to keep fit, you will be able to track your activities using either device. The use of the proprietary OS means that you won't be able to install any Android Wear apps on your Omate Smartwatch.
The Omate Racer and Omate Roma both offer 2G connectivity, so there is a possibility that they won't have to pair with a smartphone. And that low power MediaTek chip we previously mentioned, won't drain your battery that quickly. That means you should be able to get one week of life from the cell before you need to recharge it. The timepieces also offer Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

If it turns out to not be standalone, what platforms would it support?

Now that's a real smartwatch unlike another that came out several months ago and had to go through hoops just to get it.

How many sensors does this smartwatch have. The other one that came out months ago that I have on my wrist right now has 10 sensors. What OSes does this smartwatch support? Then"fake" smartwatch that I have on supports Windows Phonee, Android, iOS, Windows and Mac OS. Seems real to me.

I like the Android Wear OS functionality, but other than that, these look better in every way, especially the battery life & price. But taken into account that we know next to nothing about these items, I think it's far too early to say that these are must haves.

So i noticed that no smart watch (aside from moto, lg, sammy) seems to have andoid wear OS on them. Why oh Why? There are not even rumors that points to an upcoming smartwatch from a known brand that carries android with it.
