    Omate Rise: Time is limited to back the Android powered watch on IndieGoGo


    PaulOBrien

    Omate, purveyors of the previously crowdfunded 'Truesmart' Smartwatch which raised $1m on KickStarter, are back - on IndieGoGo this time, with a 48 hour crowdfunding campaign for the Rise, a new Android based (but not Android Wear) smartwatch with a round design, MediaTek internals and full phone connectivity. At the time of writing, the campaign has raised nearly 500% of it's (meagre) $30,000 target.

    So what is it?

    The Omate Rise is a Smartwatch which can connect to your Android or iOS device using Bluetooth LE or be used standalone thanks to 3G connectivity with US (1900MHz) and EU (2100MHz) frequency bands. GPS and Wi-Fi are also on board. The watch is powered by Android 5.1 together with Omate User Interface 4.0, and has a carbon fibre bezel and interchangeable 22mm standard straps. The screen is a 1.3" Innolux TFT panel running at a 360x360 resolution, with a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and an ARM Mali-400 GPU.

    Since the device is running a full Android release, it comes without the limitations of Android Wear (but also without all the apps that come with that of course). Included apps at launch will offer fitness tracking, calls, text messaging, email, social media notifications and more.

    Omate claim the Rise is the World’s First 1 ATM water-resistant smartwatch sporting a carbon fibre bezel. I can believe that... as it's quite specific!

    The Rise might be the perfect device for the hackers amongst us - Omate have pledged to release the Source Code of the Rise to developers via its XDA-Developers page, just as they did with the TrueSmart+ watch.

    Pledges start at $209 for a super-early-bird deal, which also includes a free Bluetooth heart rate strap. Tempted? Head on over to IndieGoGo to splash your cash!
