Fly Or Die: Omate TrueSmart

In a year, we’ve gone to having one or two startup smartwatch companies to a sea of offerings before us, from companies as big as Google all the way down to Omate, a startup looking to make your wrist as brilliant as possible.

At its core, the TrueSmart is likely one of the most powerful smartwatches on the market. Powered by Android 4.2, the TrueSmart has its own SD card and SIM card, complete with speakers, a color touchscreen, and a camera. Essentially, it’s a phone on your wrist.

But that’s not to say it’s perfect.

The TrueSmart can, technically, do everything it promises. However, usability is an issue. In John’s time spent with the device, he felt that typing of any sort was damn near impossible. “You have Skype on your wrist, which is awesome,” he said. “But you will go crazy trying to respond to those Skypes.”

This has been an issue for most smartwatch makers, who have to tread the line between full-featured performance and a simplified user experience.

Without a doubt, Omate is pushing hard to offer more features than anyone else. But at what cost?
