If you’re a sport watch lover like me, come and see this iPhone-friendly smart watch STRATA by MetaWatch, a company founded by engineers from Fossil’s former watch division. And we’re talking about ‘hands-freedom’ connection where you can connect with your iPhone apps to access calls, Twitter and Facebook updates, SMS, work-outs, email and more.
Strata is a smart sports watch specifically designed to compliment your smartphone experience in ‘Hands Freedom’ technology. It works perfectly to any Bluetooth 4.0 connection to your iPhone or Android device. Yes! It’s compatible with Android too.
Are you a slave of information age? Well, it’s easy to get updates anytime and anywhere with this smart watch paired up with your smartphone. Take the ‘wrist’ and enjoy its mile long features.
The group started a line of semi-successful Android smart watches, and now they take the ‘wrist’ to iOS. One of the features of Strata is the support of push notifications from Twitter, Facebook and Mail. It’s a kick-ass sports watch on the go.
What’s more, it supports iOS 6 where the plethora of its features are maximized. Weather, Stocks, Text Messages, Phone, Calendar, remotely control Music app and more.
It’s an edge for developers too, as Strata is built on an open-source platform. They can create iPhone apps that compliment its features.
I know some of you are curious about the Strata watch. Unfortunately, it isn’t available yet. MetaWatch is currently raising $100,000 via Kickstarter in order to start its mass production. As of this writing, the group is halfway on the pledge goal with 319 backers. They still have 22 days more before the appointed time. Backers can pledge a minimum of $1. However, if you’re serious to fund this project done, a pledge of $159 gives you your very own Strata. Choose in one of the four available colors, Olympian Blue, Digital Camo, Tangerine and Optic Green.
MetaWatch plans to start shipping the smart watches this fall.
