Omate has already released its Smartwatch Rise about nine months ago. This wearable uses as the operating system the full Android 5.1, not Android Wear, and even provides independent 3G LTE for mobile Internet connections. Those who contributed to the Crowdfunding platform IndieGoGo received the Omate Rise for $ 199. Next year the Smartwatch then comes regularly for 349 US dollars in the trade. Now it wants to know Omate again and has launched a second Crowdfunding campaign for the Omate Rise. It is about a limited number with Amazon’s language control Alexa.


Amazon’s Alexa also has been at the CoWatch available that Omate Rise but is the first smartwatch with 3G LTE, which integrates Alexa. In contrast to the CoWatch, Omate has also officially secured the support of Amazon. The Omate Rise is limited to 999 units with Amazon Alexa in December 2017. The prerequisite is, of course, that the financing is successful.

The same applies to the Omate Rise technology. The Smartwatch features a 1.3 inch screen and a 360 x 360 pixel resolution, the SoC MediaTek MT2601, 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of storage space. The battery comes on 580 mAh. A Nano-SIM can be used in combination with the Omate Rise. In addition, the interfaces Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n are on board. Networking is the Omate Rise with smartphones from Apple iOS 9 or Android 4.4.
