WIMM intros micro computer which fits into a watch!

We have many “smart” products around us — smart-phones, smart-cars, smart-home-appliances, etc. Here’s one more addition to the list — smart-watch. Wondering what the hell is smartwatch? Well, it is a standard watch which comes embedded with a micro computer. Think this is all fantasy? You better believe because WIMM just showcased a prototype of smartwatch!

The device has a 1*1 inch touchscreen display and includes a micro computer.

The device is powered by two processors — a low-power chip to keep clock up to date and to run display; and a Samsung ARM11 chip for apps and user interface.

Two chips under a 1×1 inch dial? There are plenty of other features including a microSD card slot for up to 32GB storage, accelerometer, magnetometer, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, speaker and buzzer. The watch also has a 1×1 inch touchscreen with 160*160 pixels resolution.

WIMM smartwatch is good for 30 hours and after that you’ll have to recharge it.

Pretty impressive for a start-up, no? Well, it has backing of Foxconn.

The WIMM smartwatch is based on custom Android operating system (open source). The public SDK will be available in Q3.
