Earlier this year it was only Samsung and Sony that had the Smartwatches present in the market before the Android Wear operating system announced in March. After that the vendors went on to introduce a dozen of smartwatches, which was powered by Android Wear or either their customs OS. All these were designed to be worn by Men. While we were yet to come across a dedicated smartwatch for the ladies, but seems like that wish has been fulfilled too.
As the smartwatch manufacturer, Omate, has announced a sapphire-coated smartwatch designed to be worn by ladies. Most notably, it is a near-circular, always-on transflective LCD, which is similar to the one that is a feature on the Alcatel’s smartwatch. It is available in three body types, silver, rose gold and gold as it comes stuffed in shiny stainless steel with matching beaded wristband for a feminine look.
Omate Lutetia is a first true feminine smartwatch designed and engineered by the team of women. Like the Omate X, announced in a couple of month back, the Lutetia (named after ancient Paris) is also powered by Mediatek’s Aster MT2502 platform and runs on Nucleus RTOS. The feminine smartwatch mainly serves as the notification center, instead of a full-fledged cellular device.
The other interesting features of the device include pedometer, music control, weather, stopwatch, timer, as well as the Voice control features for your convenience. The device is said to give at least a generous week-long battery life, moreover, it has the capability to support the Android and iOS devices.
According to the Engadget, the CEO of Omate, Laurent Le Pen said that their company is focusing to compete with the designer smartwatches from the likes of Michael Kros, Calvin Klein, Guess and D&G. The device will be up for pre-order on Omate’s website, starting tomorrow at a price tag of $169 while the shipment of the device will start somewhere around December. And yeah, the first 1000 units will be a limited edition, meaning consumers can engrave unique codes on the back of the device.
