Overview of i'm Watch - i'm Color
i’m Watch is a product like no other. It is the world’s first real smartwatch.
i’m Watch connects to your smartphone through Bluetooth and delivers to your wrist, calls, text messages, emails, notifications, music, agenda, weather forecast, pictures and more.
With the i’m Watch, you just need your phone within Bluetooth range, but do not have to physically touch your phone to receive calls and messages.
There are many occasions in life where this can be a benefit; during sports, at work, at home, when out socialising to name just a few.
Such a product offers a more polite and discrete way to check for calls, messages and much more, just look at your wrist. Intelligent and ergonomic, with a soft and elegant silhouette and a curvedHD touchscreen: i’m Watch is fast and easy to use.
Designed and styled in Italy and manufactured from only the best materials, something that is functional has been made into something functional and stylish.
The underlying functionality is the same across the i’m Watch range, but the difference comes in the finishes available; from simple yet distinctive colours through to more opulent Gold’s. Just pick the finish and colour to suit your style, the occasion and your budget.
Simple and intuitive, the watch is capable of multi-tasking and uses gestures such as touch, drag, swipe and pinch as a way of controlling this small wrist mounted computer.
The purpose and benefits of this smartwatch are best explained in the following promotional video.
i'm Droid is the brilliant operating system of i'm Watch. It is a heavily customised version of Android, specifically developed for i'm Watch.
The Android operating system is open source meaning it is simpler for developers to create applications that work for I’m watch and you!
This subsequently means that the possibilities of the watch are ever growing as more apps are developed over time.
