Omate Rise – World’s First Smartwatch 3.0

By |May 2nd, 2016|Uncategorized|

The World’s 1st Standalone SmartWatch available to Consumers

The History of Omate

Since 2013, Omate has been designing innovative wearable technologies that have been shipped out all over the World, from the World’s first standalone Smartwatch 2.0 powered by Android™ to fashion companion smartwatches and refined smart jewelry.³

Firstly, the company was founded in Europe, Germany under the brand SIMValley. The founder and chief executive is Laurent Le Pen – (Video below: a Keynote by Laurent Le Pen):

…and co-founders….——.

The European SIM Valley smartwatch was the precursor to the TrueSmart; built off same molds, parts, software.  Aside other crowdfunded smartwatches kicking-off like The Pebble (on indiegogo), SIMValley re-branded as ‘Omate TrueSmart‘ on KickStarter and blew their goals sky high.

Omate launched a Kickstarter campaign on August 21, 2013, with an initial fundraising target of $100,000. Backers spending $199 would receive an Omate TrueSmart when they became available ($179 for the first 500 backers and $189 for the next 500 backers). The project had met the $100,000 goal in half a day.[6] Just before the end of the campaign, over $1 million was reached. [Wikipedia]

Omate #1 Leader in Standalone SmartWatches

Omate, since day one, has lead the market on Standalone, GSM, and SIM enabled Smartwatch Technologies since mid to late 2012.  The smart device race began in early 2013 with the introduction of crowdfunding along with Google’s Glass project, rumors.  A focus on Bluetooth campanion, smartphone tethered, fitness trackers (for example, The Pebble), left a money-devouring niche for the next 4 years: Data Independent Wearables.

 Our predictions, use cases, forecasts [Wearables Group] came to conclusion for mass adoption (ex; tablets), a practical wearable device with standalone GSM, Wifi, voice control, automation, faster nanotechnology,  smaller components, and finally – the key – seamlessly data driven capabilities; then would the “Smart Watch” reach its first mass consumerism benchmark.

Consumer SmartWatch Adoption to TakeOff in Sept (an analysis)

By |August 31st, 2014|Apple, Forecasts (In-Depth), Market Data, News, REPORTS & ANALYSIS, Smart Watches, SMARTWATCHES, Standalone, Uncategorized, WEARABLE DEVICES|

Smartwatches, until, the past few months have been clunky, ugly, and basically seen as a novelty product. We’re seeing multiple large consumer electronics companies entering the wrist-worn wearables market, in part, due to Android Wear being the first actractively useful user interface. Thank you to Google and it’s Android Wear operating system.

THE SMARTWATCH MARKET IS CONSOLIDATING

the Smartwatch market, as we expected, is in the middle of consolidating form-factors and hardware by Samsung, LG, Apple, Motorola, and Google. These large cap OEM’s entered the industry a year ago among a smarwatch market dominated by multiple small companies – producing clunky, mfg Asian components, and all watches with their own OS/User Interfaces.  As what typically happens, these small companies can’t compete against the Giant OEM’s – which is Great for Smartwatch Consumers.

Samsung, for example, released the Galaxy Gear and Gear 2 with its form-factor in focus.  Now, we’re amidst the OEM’s (Samsung, etc) fabricating advanced component technology (vs form-factor focused) which will dramatically improve and simultaneously refine a sexier, sleeker design as the market progresses.  The COMPETITION IS FIERCE.

SMARTWATCH TECH EXPEDITED; DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENTS

Overall, over the next 2-3 years, Apple, Samsung, LG’s technology advancements will seamlessly integrate into the advancement of their core products.

This August 2014, we’ve never seen to-date, such significant number of new smartwatch company’s leaking new product models and their features for an expected September-October smartwatch announcements – of either product availability or announcement of production.

The reason for such activity must be attributed to the Apple’s scheduled “new product” announcement; set for September 9th 2014. IFA Wearables Conference is also scheduled for September 3rd, 2014.  Apple’s iWatch is expected to absorb a 50% +/- 4-9% market share when released for sale over the iWatches first year.  This represents a HUGE threat to Samsung, LG, Motorola, and other competitors.

SmartWatches Launching this September and October 2014

  • The Apple iWatch
  • The Samsung Galaxy Gear “S”
    The Samsung Galaxy Gear Circle
  • The LG G Watch ‘R’
  • The Motorola Moto360
  • The Omate ‘X’ Watch

WHO WILL WINS 1ST?  The Apple iWatch or Galaxy Gear ‘S’

We predict the iWatch will meet prediction of forecasts, in sales, and market placement. Sources for this fulfullment will primarily be by Apple product and GeeKy Smartwatch fans. Most expect Apple’s iWatch to outshine every other brand competitor.  However, we disagree – strongly.

Samsung’s Galaxy Gear ‘S’ (short for ‘Solo’) will be the First, large OEM, consumer release of a 3G GSM/cdma wirelessly enabled smartwatch with a flexible display.  We’ve concluded, whomever first integrates a SIM chip within their core smartwatch model, (alongside significant form-factor improvements, a BIG BONUS) would take lead as the Top Smartwatch Company in Sales.

DATA INDEPENDENCE IS KEY
and its finally here

The experience of complete data connection independence versus any other companion device is an entirely MORE useful and practical application in design of a smartwatch – as a whole.

Samsung announces the Gear S, with curved glass and 3G connectivity

By |August 28th, 2014|News, Smart Watches, SMARTWATCHES|

Samsung, the world’s most productive company when it comes to making smartwatches, has just announced a new model: The Gear S, its sixth smartwatch.

The Gear S is quite special. It will sport a 2-inch AMOLED curved glass display, 3G connectivity (independent Internet!), and Samsung’s Tizen operating system, and it will let you make phone calls.

More specifically, the Gear S will have 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity to ensure you keep your watch online at all times, even if your phone is too far from it for the Bluetooth connection to work. In addition, you can make or receive phone calls, reply to incoming messages using an onscreen keyboard, and use voice commands to control your watch. The watch will also be equipped with a heart-rate monitor and GPS.

On the features and apps front, the Gear S will come equipped with turn-by-turn pedestrian navigation, news and weather features, a music player and photo gallery, the ability to check social notifications from Facebook, a Nike+ Running application, S Health features, and more.

 

And if that wasn’t enough, Samsung also announced a pair of headphones, the Gear Circle, that can work with the smartwatch and let you “receive calls, listen to music, and make voice commands in style through a Bluetooth connection,” as Samsung said in a statement.

Additional specs: Dual core 1.0 GHz processor, a 2.0-inch 360 x 480 Super AMOLED display, 512MB RAM, 4GB onboard storage, and a 300mAh battery.

The company made the announcement at its headquarters in Korea about an hour ago. And while that indicates the watch will likely hit the Korean market first, the company did say that the Gear S and Gear Circle will be available in global markets “in phases … beginning in October”

Earlier this week, LG teased its upcoming G Watch R in a little video, despite its first Android watch being more or less a failure, and today the rumor mill pegged Sept. 9 as the announcement date for Apple’s wearable, the same day it will unveil its new iPhone lineup.
