Connect Watch should be the first smartwatch to arrive on the market with AsteroidOS, an open source operating system designed for touchscreen devices and watches.
As expected, the team that has created Connect Watch has launched a fundraising campaign in Europe on the Ulule platform with the hope of “scrapping” 30,000 euros.
The Ulule price for the Connect Watch is 99 euros (with shipping from October) while in the stores the smartwatch should be sold at 149 euros.
Connect Watch features include a 1.4-inch AMOLED display with 400 x 400 pixels resolution, a quad-core MediaTek processor, GSM network support, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, a GPS module, and a 2-megapixel camera .
The smartwatch will be available in two versions: one with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage, the other with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage.
Following is a brief video demonstration of the device. Good vision:
