Omate Truesmart - a smartwatch with a built-in five megapixel camera - is set to go into production after striking its crowd funding target. The machine raised more than $100,000 of pledges on fundraising site Kickstarter, guaranteeing it will get the cash. Omate's success comes ahead of the much-anticipated launch of a smart watch from Samsung.
Unlike many of the smart watches already on the market, Omate says the True smart can be fitted with a micro-Sim card to make use of its 3G chip. It has not announced when it will unveil the product, but its next scheduled event is at Berlin's If consumer tech show in just over a fortnight's time. This will allow it to make voice calls and send social media messages with no having to be paired with a smart phone or tablet - although that is also an option.
