Meta WatchTM recently announced its development of a so called “connect watch” and by the looks of it, the concept watch is like a laptop designed for your wrist. And as far as these concepts are concerned, this is not the first time the world has seen the first new beginnings of these watches. Of course, Microsoft and Sony Ericsson have ventured into the same arena but went down to the garbage bin, but that little hindrance didn’t stop others in trying out their luck. But, in all other cases, some will most likely to speak up and say, “Do we really need this?”
The new Meta Watch will be available in both digital and analog versions and are enclosed in a 3 ATM water resistant stainless steel case and leather strap with mineral glass crystal. A vibrating motor, 3 axis accelerometer and an ambient light sensor gives it added bonus and sophistication points. And with the use of Texas Instruments Incorporated’s (TI) CC2560 Bluetooth host controller interface, the Meta WatchTM will enable users to sync their watches to their smartphones, laptops, tablets or desktops and can receive updates, emails and the like, directly to their watches.
It was originally planned to be released in July but was pushed to August 2011 due to some issues regarding the watches’ programming clips and steel cases. The Price tag on this Fossil Gadget is $200 (BHD 76).
