Omate TrueSmart Review

Let me confess, after reviewing the much hyped Pebble, the Sony SmartWatch 2 and the Galaxy Gear, we were not that excited about the Omate TrueSmart 2.0. But after playing around with this little gadget for about twenty minutes and despite noticing some obvious shortcomings, we were totally impressed.
Currently the smartwatch is available for pre-order, however, we managed to get our hands on a beta version for this review.

Most smartwatches these days have some basic issues, for example they go blank when untethered from a phone, some are compatible with a small subset of smartphones, while others can show notifications only from a few particular apps, and so on. The Omate users don’t have to fear any of these glitches, since it works as a smartwatch as well as a standalone smartphone.

The Omate TrueSmart is not there to replace your cell phone, but it keeps you connected to the world at places where you can’t take/use your phone. No matter whether you’re swimming, cycling, running, or surfing, the smartwatch lets you make calls, shoot videos, take photos and even connect with other devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
